#85 Marianna Hill

Marianna Hill bounced back and forth between movies and TV – she was an Elvis girl as well as a Star Trek babe. Her versatility took her from cornball TV shows like Mayberry RFD to art films like Medium Cool and the under-appreciated Messiah of Evil. And her expertise with dialects and a willingness to don wigs of all styles and colors made her something of a Meryl Streep of the B’s. Though she appeared in The Godfather II and also opposite Clint Eastwood in High Plains Drifter, she never really received roles worthy of her talent. 

By the way, you haven’t lived until you’ve seen her strip scene in El Condor. This is a family-oriented blog, so I won't include any links to that (cough, cough, YouTube, cough, cough).
