I must confess that I have had a crush on actress Melody Anderson for almost 30 years. Maybe crush is too small a word. Ever since I caught her in two incredibly entertaining movies in the early 80s on HBO (all praise early pay cable!) I have had a small but...... useful series of fantasies built around her lovely face and fine female form. (And that’s as much detail as I’m going to give about my early teenage years in such a public forum so don’t ask. We all have our own methods of getting through the horrors of puberty.) The two films in question are FLASH GORDON (1980) and DEAD & BURIED (1981). Each is a classic of its type (IMHO) and far more entertaining than most of the dreck being squirted out onto Cineplex screens currently. Of course, both were considered box office bombs so my attraction to unpopular movies was clearly an early affliction and one I can hardly be expected to be ashamed of since I must have just been born this way. *sigh* Any way----
What has me thinking of Miss Anderson today? Well- I’ve been ever so slowly working my way through my bootleg of the LOGAN’S RUN television series from 1977-78 and tonight I got to the last aired episode ‘Carousel’ and who do I see in a very minor role but Melody Anderson. She only has one brief scene with Logan and Francis in a crowd but seeing her smiling, flirting face really gave me a grin. Man! What a sexy lady! I think I’d almost be afraid to meet her.
