Mary Woronov: The Woman, The Legend

16 Aug

Mary Woronov

VIDEO of her videos:

You may not recognize her name, but her face and/or voice have probably left an impression on you somewhere along your movie watching journey.

Up until I did some research about her for this post I only knew half of the awesomeness that is she. I knew and loved the b movie queen Mary. I had no idea about the Andy Warhol Silver Factory Mary.

Let’s begin with the B movie queen Mary.

Mary Woronov was brilliant in a shit load of shitty film such as:

The Lady in Red

Rock ‘n’ Roll High School

Night of the Comet

TerrorVision

Chopping Mall

Warlock

Frog-g-g!

Not to mention the TV shows she was in that we all hate or adore:

Charlie’s Angels

Logan’s Run

Taxi

Buck Rogers in the 25th Century

Knight Rider

Mr. Belvedere

Murder, She Wrote

Amazing Stories

Faerie Tale Theatre

St. Elsewhere

Webster

Monsters

Wings

Babylon 5

My So-Called Life

Highlander

Family Matters

Super Duper Supremely Condensed Warhol Connection Explanation

Her cool deep voice, lion-like face and 10″ thick cheek bones made an impression on Andy Warhol when she was young. She went on to be one of his break out stars. Sorta. She was on a bunch of his films and participated in the Velvet Underground as a go-go dancer and personality. She later moved on to films and television after the 1960’s groovy days died out. She went on to be a b movie queen. The Mary most of us (those of us who know who she is to begin with) know and love.

Thanks for all your wonderful work, Mary!

Time for Another Round of ‘Are They Related?’: Celebrity Edition

Dominique Swain VS. Amanda Bynes

They both have that “nice girl Lolita thoughts” look about them. Same face shape and coloring. Amanda’s nose is bigger and Dominique’s cheekbones stick out more but I say they look very much alike. They both fill a certain niche in Hollywood. Pretty, cute, blonde girl next door who you just might be able to talk into playing doctor. What?! Come on! They both have that slutty glint in their eye. Don’t get me wrong I think their both awesome. Great talents and very successful. But they still have that glimmer that says, “I won’t tell”.

Anyway…

Dominique has been riding the “Lolita” train since 97′ and has continued to pose in photo shoots as the character ever since. I think she’s about 30 and she still wears braids or flashes her undies “accidentally” in most shots. I wanna see Lolita 2: “Barefoot and Pregnant: The Post Nymphet Years”. (Side Note–I had to Google “Nymphet” to verify spelling since I can’t spell to save my life. Gross mistake.)

Now Amanda is a bit less creepy. For one thing she is much younger and seems to have built an empire of herself. She was one of Nickelodeon’s child actor from the mid/late 90’s through the mid/late 00’s. She was on probably about 4 shows on Nick. You know how Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake and all those other kids were created in a Disney factory? Well the next models of child stars were created in the Nickelodeon factory. “All That” (a kids’ version of SNL on Nick), remember that? I do. Damn I miss Left Eye… 😦 (Side Note: TLC, remember them? Well they sang the theme song for “All That”. Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes was one of their three singers. She had the best voice, and she sure knew how to burn a cheating boyfriend/husband’s house down. Sadly…it was her house too at the time. She later died in a car accident.)

Anyway…

I think Dominique and Amanda could play sisters. And it’s creepy how much time has passed and how little either of them has aged. Especially Dominique. I think she’s an alien. Possibly a pod person.

Thoughts?
