Movie Clip Wednesday: One Hit Wonders
The theme this week is a really good one--actors and actresses who make one memorable movie then....disappear.
It seems to Aunty that this heah category especially marks out chile' actors. Many of 'em is chosen for some quality that in a chile' is grand, but doan always translate as they grow up, or, they grow up an' is damaged in the process by the whole actin' milieu. Often it be real sad, but sometimes not--I heered that one of the kids in Encounters of the Third Kind went on to be veterinarian or somethin'.
Anyhoo, I done singled out Harvey Stephens, a British chile' actor, in honor of Joanna Cake (Cakey-Pie!) who is our hostess for Movie Clip Wednesday while Boxer continues her hostess hiatus.
Stephens starred in one of what remains one of the most frightenin' movies I'se ever seen. It's a David Selzer screenplay that won an Oscar fer the music. Wif Gregory Peck an' Lee Remmick as his daddy an' mama'. Harvey Stephens played the chile' Damian in THE OMEN. Even the trailer below unnerves me.
Stephens, 41 years ole' now, went on to work at the London Stock Exchange.
Movie is jes' plain creepy.
