#39 Mary Louise Weller

Poor Mary Louise Weller. She’ll probably always be remembered for just one role – snooty, uptight sorority girl Mandy Pepperridge in Animal House. Further, she may forever be remembered for just one scene … You know, the one at the beginning … In the car … With her boyfriend … Doing … Uh …Um … Never mind.

And that’s all too bad. MLW was actually pretty hot, and starred in some classic B’s and some very cheesy TV (Fantasy Island, CHiPs, Starsky and Hutch, BJ and the Bear …). 

Oh, and there’s also that other scene in Animal House … You know, with Belushi on the ladder … Outside her window …
