so I'm watching "Bride of the Gorilla"

it's a fun film. its star isn't much of an actress but Barbara Payton is a looker. & if you know her short sad history yr mind will wander. it's been sd that her dressing room saw more action than was capturd by the camera. apparently she was boffing co-star Tom Conway on days when she wasn't juggling Franchot Tone & Tom Neal. & in the cast is a tall hot handsome man by the name of Woody Strode with whom she also had an affair.

scuttlebutt is that a biopic is in the works. her story lends itself to either tragedy of Greek proportion or melodrama as sleazy as the headlines on celebrity news shows. I can't wait.
