#82 Salli Sachse

Poor Salli Sachse. She will be forever remembered primarily as one of Jackson Browne’s many girlfriends. Yup, in addition to Daryl Hannah, and Joni Mitchell, and Nico, and Laura Nyro, and Phoebe Snow, and Jaid Barrymore … there was Salli.

On the thespian side, Salli actually tallied only 17 credits, almost all of which were for beach movies. She did branch out at the end, though, with a handful of hot rod, biker, and youth-gone-wild flicks. To tell you the truth, it doesn’t seem like she was ever in anything that didn’t have “B” and “drive-in” written all over it.

  1. She was Salli Vining when a model and beauty queen before she married folk singer Peter Sachse. He died in a plane crash over La Jolla beach. A bit sad for her.

  2. Yeah, and she saw it happen. Must have been terrible for her. Thanks for the link though.

  3. She was in Hong Kong when it happened so,she didn't witness it.

    1. Really? I heard that story from several sources, but I guess they could all be urban legends. It certainly would have been better for Salli if she had been actually 15 hours away.

  4. I think that most of this profile was insulting.Have a heart.

    1. Well, I appreciate your honesty. Believe me, it's a fine line. I try to have a little fun, but I also really love these girls and their movies. Sorry if I didn't nail on Salli. She really is quite beautiful, and definitely had a life outside of the B's.

  5. salli has a few videos on youtube and if say something real nice you might get a reply from her.

  6. I think sgt deadhead was her best esp when all the girls in shower had to fall-in when the generals passed by, its on youtube
