Never really became a "star" but still had an amazingly "cool" career.
Started out working with Richard Foreman in avant-garde theater.
Starred in not one but two major cult films: Phantom of Paradise and Dario Argento's Susperia. Not to mention Pennies From Heaven.
I'd never seen her until Suspiria, or at least I think I'd never seen her, I loved her acting style. I also watched Stardust Memories and didn't recognize her at first and she may have been in Love and Death too, anyway, I like her.
(quote)Wasn't she in My Favorite Year as well?
Yes as well as Woody Allen's "Love And Death", "Stardust Memories" & "Pennies From Heaven". She writes and performs childen music, wrote a cookbook. She's married to Tom Rothman, an exec at 20th Century Fox who does intros to movies on The Fox Movie Channel.
I will always remember her as Suzy Bannion in the horror classic "Suspiria".
She was only a so-so actress. I can't believe that she manged to score the little bit of career that she did have.
She's on Facebook. Seems sweet but has no interest whatsoever in acting anymore. She writes children's books and also published a cookbook a few years ago, The Crabby Cook Cookbook: Recipes and Rants:
"I thought it was high time there was a book that acknowledged that not everybody experiences the joy of cooking, that sometimes cooking for a family on a daily basis can be really irritating! This book, with 135 easy recipes, is for those people, crabby cooks like me! It’s a collection of humor, survival tips and recipes, for the kitchen-challenged!"
What R13 is trying to say, is that Jessica Harper became a frau.
I'm so glad she had a resurgence with Arrested Development.
She is married to a Fox executive. He hosted a showing of "Phantom" on the Fox Movie Channel a few years ago, and after discussing his 1974 crush on her, he then brought her out as his wife. Pretty cool moment.
I think she was ok but miscast in "Shock Treatment". Her voice was too deep for the songs.
I was surprised to see how good she was in "Suspiria".
She played a Joan Collins type in the short lived Soap Bare Essence. Lee Grant originated the role in the mini-series.
She's also in "Inserts" with Richard Dreyfuss, Veronica Cartwright and Bob Hoskins. That is one messed-up film.
Well I agree with her about cooking everyday. Very annoying.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
