But since there's this thread, Tiffany was by far at her most entertaining in this episode as purse twirling street hooker who tough talks the abusive pimp. Too funny.

Poor Jaclyn has a massive camel toe in those tight pants. That couldn't have been comfortable.

I posted this before in another CA thread but I think a sixth season could've been interesting. Jaclyn would've left, Cheryl would've moved up to top billing followed by Tanya and I think a black actress joining the cast (which had been talked about for years) could've brought fresh attention to the show, though at that point such casting would've viewed as too gimmicky and perhaps backfired, so who knows.

Aaron Spelling said even before Season 5 started production, that it would probably be the last. He knew at that point Jaclyn was leaving and that the ratings were dropping quickly. They needed another Season to break the 100 episode mark to get a good syndication deal.

Did Shelly Hack REALLY do her hair and make-up herself the 2nd half of the season? She look SOO much better, she started on the show with an over teased frizzy mop. Poor thing never had a chance. I honestly can't believe the other girls didn't have any say when they decide to hire her.

Nolan Miller is in that clip a bit. But in his Television Academy Foundation interview, he talked at length about how when Shelley Hack started, he LOVED her. He loving having such a beautiful woman to dress, and that she made all his creations look good. And for the first couple of weeks she was humble.

He said suddenly, she became very difficult and demanding. He laughed at how quickly it happened, and how different she suddenly became.

I think she does quite a great job in King of Comedy as Fred DeCordova's associate producer. She really captures that personality type- coldly professional. The way she blows off Rupert is perfectly done.

by Anonymousreply 5303/10/2019

yes she did do her own hair and makeup later in her season. What that means though is she brought her own person in who knew her look and she had input in how they were doing it. She was a model since she was 14 and made a fortune doing it. She knew how to make herself look good. What she did with a lot of her modeling money was to pay for travel while she was still a teen and then pay for her over the top education. I've forgotten the wheres of her education but it's impressive. The travel that she did as a teen on her own is what impressed me the most. That was probably a big reason to why she didn't fit in. She probably didn't know how to chit chat about Bootsie Gumdrops in the cafeteria. I'm a Shelley Hack troll and love posting in her threads. Her look not fitting in was simply the biggest reason it didn't work out.

Season 4 was weak because it was mostly solo Angel episodes, but that wasn’t Shelley’s fault.

One of the all time best episodes was “Angel Hunt” which had all 3 Angels stranded on an island and hunted by a man who has a beef with Charlie (a plot that the first Drew Barrymore film stole from!) And Shelley had an action scene that this gayling re-enacted in the privacy of my room on several occasions!

by Anonymousreply 9603/12/2019

R91, I agree that that was a very good episode but always felt that scene you posted where the guy knocks out Tiffany and she disappears was just another gimmick cooked up by the writers (on orders from the producers) to cut down on Shelley Hack's screen time and focus most of the episode on Cheryl and Jaclyn.

Apparently the first time Jaclyn Smith met Shelley Hack on the set of Angels she turned to Cheryl Ladd within earshot of Shelley and said, 'Didn't we just do a TRANSVESTITE episode?'

Shelley spoke about that interview at R90 much later and spoke about how after the camera stopped rolling the woman--whose breadth reeked of gin--asked her if she'd ever experimented with a woman and then proceeded to mime scissors on each hand using her index and middle fingers and then grind them against each other.

R97 I wonder if she took acting lessons like Aaron Spelling asked her to do? Boy, that had to be embarrassing for her. She did improve a little later on in the season when they gave her a little more to do. Less stiff in general.

Studying acting with some good acting teachers is never a bad idea. Farrah Fawcett went to NY and studied at HB Studio in the early 80s and managed to turn her career around and be taken seriously as an actress. Of course she had more "name value" going for her that Shelley did to get a big showy roles to prove herself.

by Anonymousreply 10103/13/2019

R95 Funny you should mention The Stepfather! I just watched it for the first time this past weekend. A bit off topic, and I realize the 80s were a different time, but I was FLOORED when they showed the 15 year old daughter taking a shower with full on ass and tits shots!! Completely gratuitous and unnecessary, it lent nothing to the scene. Shelley was good in it though. Terry O'Quinn was positively terrifying.

by Anonymousreply 10203/13/2019

The episode in the old fashioned dance club was so embarrassing for poor Tiffany. One scene they say she is in the bathroom. It has no payoff. There is no scene of her speaking with someone there or picking up on a clue on her way back. They just talk without her. No reason she could not be in the scene.

R133 Probably in a vault somewhere. They've never been shown anywhere. I think she filmed two episodes, tops.

I think the Angels Go Truckin' episode is particularly bad. This was before the producers realized that Tiff was not cutting it with viewers, so she has some things to do in the episode. It's clear they wanted her in the Sabrina Duncan mode (someone who can play campy undercover characters).

I do love Tiffany but I can admit Shelly Hack can't act and is very stiff, which I find endearing. But didn't they screen test her. They had to have seen it. Watching these episodes again, I think Cheryl Ladd was the best actress of the bunch, given the material. I also think Farrah is better in the episodes she was forced to come back to do then in her season.

by Anonymousreply 15003/15/2019

r150, I do think Kate Jackson was the best in terms of acting but Cheryl Ladd was very good. One of the reasons I took to Cheryl so fast coming in behind Farrah leaving and all the tea spilt from that was her acting ability. Looking at the reruns, I'm reminded of how natural she was. I do agree that Farrah did seem better in the episodes she was forced to do and as we saw, she became an even better actress after that. I mean The Burning Bed. Wow! Jaclyn Smith has always been my favorite angel. Acting wise, she wasn't consistent but she could pull it out sometimes. I really thought her forced heroin addiction episode was her best work.

R167 She was snapped by paparazzi as recently as 2 years ago looking thin and drawn. Tabloids claimed she has/had a pain pill addiction and is a hoarder. She had to sell her nice house and move into smaller place due to money problems.

As much as she worked from the 70s through the 90s, she should be getting a nice pension from SAG. Even if she blew all the money she made of the years, that pension would keep a roof over her head and fed at least.

The original and the Tiffany version openings were the least clunky. Once they got into two went to LA, one in SF, I was like why wasn't Kris in LA, too? Having them spread out made the most sense, but the third version! Yikes! "The other to a top school for modeling...and the each reaped the blah blah...."

I do think that shot of Jaclyn Smith turning her head around in the opening is such a classic shot; what a beauty!

One problem with Tiffany is that she was more of a Kelly than a Sabrina. The show needed a Sabrina.

Today starts poor Tiff's last episode (2 parter) where she has the indignity of being in an episode where a guy falls in love with 2 angels and she's not one of them. And then at the end, Kelly and Kris both quit but it's poor Tiffany who doesn't come back. I remember as a kid knowing she wasn't coming back when the episode aired.

Smith got pregnant almost immediately after ANGELS was over. She was 35 when the series finished, which is very different from 35 now. She maintained a bikini body right up to the end of the series, with those S5 eps shot in Hawaii, but she does tend to be much more covered up in her "everyday" costumes from later seasons: full sleeves, blouses up to the neck. And you have to love Kelly's habit of dispensing random beatdowns in S5.

The last episode aired in June 1981 and Smith had her first child in 1982 at age 36--which was late to be having a first child, back then--and another in 1985 at 40.

One big problem according to Leonard Goldberg is that the show was doing the same thing in S5 as it was doing in S1, it didn't really change, and they simply ran out of logical, creative milieus to put the angels into. The Hawaii location shift only helped for a while (HAWAII FIVE-O had been canceled and they wanted to use that location facility but ended up using it for only 7 eps), but then they were back at the office for the end of the season. Also, the timeslot kept changing in S5.

The hours on the series were really long, and several actors who guested on the show have commented that they would shoot really fast, and on film, which was costly. They'd even shoot rehearsal sometimes just to get it done. Whether that was a case of no time or not caring, who knows?

It is remarkable when you watch the series today how much of the exteriors are on location, and not just outside on the backlot. The interiors are studio sets almost always, but the workweek had to be grueling with the location travel, the occasional learning of special skills, plus all the PR and career maintenance. The angels were everywhere back then.

Also there's a real decline in script quality, even by CA standards, in S4 and a feeling of repetitiveness sets in. So many episodes similar to previous ones. So many friends of the angels engaged or married to bad men.

by Anonymousreply 25803/19/2019

R257 It was one of the better episodes that Season. Strange they didn't air until after the November sweeps. They should've bumped Angels on Skates in favor for Angel Hunt.

R258 They should've stayed in Hawaii permanently for Season 5. It freshened up the show some and the Hawaiian episodes were fun. Most of the episodes after returning to the office were lackluster or total duds.

I've told this story before but I had a friend who worked in the proximity of the CA world back in the day, and the original plan was to replace Kate Jackson, with Sada Thompson of Family. Sada had a bit of celebrity at that time because of the tv show family, so they shot a series of scenes with just her as Angel Lorraine...I forget whether she was supposed to be Sabrina's mother or not. Anyway, in the end the powers that be, nixed the idea, primarily because Thompson didn't like the wardrobe she was stuck with: twin sets, jeans and pumps, nor did she like all the running she had to do (in pumps, no less!). Also, there was a lot of unexpected sexual tension between Angel Lorraine and Bosley which they thought would throw off the dynamic of the show so they took the safer route and hired Shelley Hack.

R270 Jaclyn was very popular among a diverse group of people. Back in the 80s, she had one of the highest "Q Scores" on television. That's why she kept getting so much TV work.

[quote]They nailed it with Ladd and then colossally bungled it with Hack and Roberts.

I think it just shows how difficult it was to replace Kate Jackson. She may not have been the lead, technically, but she was the most believable as a detective and she pretty much always played the alpha of the trio. As someone else pointed out, Hack was too much like Jaclyn Smith’s character and it wouldn’t have been logical for her to come in and assume that leader role anyway. Why the writers didn’t recognize that and attempt to move Ladd or Smith in that direction probably reflects how little they thought about the characters. There’s a quote from one of the writers in the Charlie’s Angels Casebook where he had to ask his wife the name of Smith’s character when he was working on a script. And that happened in either the 4th or 5th season. To them the women were interchangeable.

When my nieces and nephews were young I got a kick out of telling them....

Look, when we were kids, we had exactly once chance a year to watch Wizard of Oz, or Rudolph, or the Grinch who Stole Christmas.

If you missed it, you missed it.

Better luck next year.

“And you have to love Kelly's habit of dispensing random beatdowns in S5.”

r258, I lived for those beat downs when I see the S5 reruns. There was the one where Kelly whipped the Asian guy’s ass in his own shop. He blocked all his punches and hauled off and bopped the crap out of him. If that wasn’t enough, she walked up on him like she dared him to take another shot. Dumb ass did and she karate flipped him into the bookshelves. LOL!!!

Then there was that moment when the crook was trying to escape by running around the pool. Kelly met him on the other side and punched him in the stomach like a street thug from The Wire. I love me some Kelly Garrett.

Both episodes are from the ones set in Hawaii. Those Hawaii episodes were pretty good. I loved those Kelly kick ass scenes because it was almost like a throwback to the first season where she was mainly known as the cool collected ass kicking one in the group.

I once read an article by a doctor about unrealistic violence in movies. One thing he pointed out was (aside from people not dying immediately after being shot) that if you knock someone unconscious, you may well have given them brain damage.

You're better off buying the complete series for under $30. I remember there was a long delay before season 4 was finally released on DVD. Someone claimed Shelley Hack was holding up the release but I think it's more likely Sony didn't trust there would be much consumer interest in the lackluster final 2 seasons. Season 5 is only available online as a made-on-demand burned DVD-R collection but you get legit pressed discs for all 5 seasons if you buy the complete series.

R383 I always heard that's why they didn't release it, because Season 4 and 5 are seen as disappointments by many CA fans. Supposedly they rushed it when they did to capitalize on Farrah Fawcett's death. If not it, probably would've been released much later, maybe along with Season 5.

Kate wasn't afraid to speak up and tell them what she need to be improved to make the show better. Mainly the scripts. She'd even go off if press was on set - she didn't care. People Magazine recounted a fit Kate threw when they were on set early during season two to do a story on Cheryl Ladd joining the show. I linked it below.

[quote]Kate: “Why do I have to say this garbage? This is shit, shit, shit.”

She got even worse during season three, when they would let have time off to do the movie Kramer vs Kramer. She threw a huge tantrum during the episode Marathon Angels, which had a thin script even for the shows standards and was basically an excuse to show a bunch of women running in tight shirts and shorts bouncing around. That might have been the straw the broke the camels back.

Kate brought intelligence, acting ability and gravity to the whole 'beautiful women as private eyes' thing.

Yes, they needed at least one person to believable as a cop/private detective. Kate was that.

I read in another newspaper article they told Jayne Kennedy that she was too tall, especially next to Cheryl and that's why they didn't ultimately pick her.

Apparently Priscilla Barnes made it pretty far too, according to the same article. I think she might have been a good choice. She was a bit sophisticated, but could be tough also and good enough actress that she could handle the material without any problems.

They really did Julie a disservice by giving her that ridiculous opening. The first part was to show the Angels learning their skills, shooting, self defense, defensive driving. Julie gets walking with a book on her head. They present her as a joke from the start.

by Anonymousreply 44703/29/2019

They should've just brought Tanya on as tough cop from NY. She played a cop with Michelle Phillips in an episode of Vega$, which was apparently considered a potential new show for the network but never got off the ground. Aaron Spelling remembered her from that episode, which probably tipped the scale with her getting cast on the show.

They decided to mostly just having her be TNA though. The times when they let Julie be tough and physical, she showed real potential.

I remember how disappointed I was with all of Farrah’s guest appearances in Seasons 3 and 4. The storylines were boring and there wasn’t enough interaction between her and the other actresses.

And the hair! I hated the hair! Farrah never looked good in any other hairstyle other than her trademark ‘do. On the other hand, I’ve never seen any other actress pull off the Farrah ‘do well.

by Anonymousreply 47903/31/2019

Farrah did not want to be there so and they knew interaction with Cheryl and Shelley might be awkward. So I bet they wrote those epis as more of a Farrah showcase with limited interaction with the the other angels.

While "Angels in Chains" is iconic, the season 4 prison episode "Caged Angels" is great too. Kris goes undercover for this one and is harassed by predatory, obese lesbian Big Aggie (Shirley Stoler). DL icon Sally Kirkland also stars as tall, clumsy lesbian Lonnie.

And then there are lines like this.

"Start shucking, down to the pink. Just pretend I'm your mama."

A friend of mine did hair and makeup in the 70s, and the talk amongst professionals back in the day was that Jaclyn Smith had the ideal face.

On the other hand, a review of her TV movie about Jackie Kennedy mentioned that staring at her face for 2 hours made one sadly aware of the difference between prettiness and a deeper beauty.

R486 That one isn't a bad episode either. Probably the best episode after they returned to LA after "Angels on the Line" and "Attack Angels". Julie has a good scene where she tells the guy with the pipe "Drop it, or you'll go down with it!" and she means it.

Perhaps the stories of her finally bringing aboard her own hair/makeup people from the modeling world (after the show's people had failed or sabotaged her) are true.

Farrah looks like she doesn't want to be there, and a bit drugged, in the return episodes.

As has been pointed out many times though when you put Shelley in a proper style for her she clearly is the standout. So long as it is still photography. As a model she knew just how to tilt her head, where to look, how to hold her arms, etc etc etc that experience comes through.

Sabrina is the only character who was strong from the beginning to the end of her run.

Jill was great S1 but all of her subsequent guest appearances sucked. Kelly was the tough brunette with a mysterious background in S1 but became full time PTA mom by S4. Kris was cute during her first 1 &1/2 seasons but was indistinguishable from Kelly by S4. They also stylized her in a way that aged her about ten years. Tiffany and Julie were consistent but weak because of poor utilization and bad storylines.
