Quote of the Day: Blade Runner

Deckard: Have you felt yourself to be exploited in any way?

Zhora: Like what?

Deckard: Well… well, like to get this job. I mean, did… did you do, or… or were you asked to do anything lewd… or unsavory, or… or, otherwise repulsive to your… your person, huh?

Zhora: [laughs] Are you for real?

Happy 72nd birthday to Joanna Cassidy!!!

Daily Trivia – 4/10/12

Question: What comedic legend produced The Elephant Man, but left his name off the credits so moviegoers wouldn’t think the film was a satire?


Last Question: What screen siren appeared in Stripes, No Way Out, and Wall Street?

Answer: Sean Young

Sean Young was on a roll in the ’80s. She had a small role in 1981’s Stripes. Then she broke through in the cult favorite, Blade Runner. She also scored roles in Wall Street, as well as the Kevin Costner film, No Way Out. She was then cast as Vicki Vale in Tim Burton’s successful 1989 film Batman. Unfortunately, she broke her arm after falling off a horse and was replaced by Kim Basinger. Then she went off the deep end when she did not win the role as Catwoman in the sequel Batman Returns. She lost the role to Annette Bening, which would ultimately be played by Michelle Pfeiffer after Bening became pregnant. During production of the movie, Sean Young created a homemade Catwoman costume and attempted to confront Burton and actor Michael Keaton.

Her career then cooled down, as she did not star in any big movies, with the exception of 1994’s Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. Last year, she appeared in Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. She made the news recently for being arrested after a post-Oscar party.

Here are the movie trailers from some of her successful films:
