My first exposure to the work of my latest interview subject, Sandahl Bergman, came when WPIX, New York’s Movie Station, regularly played Conan The Barbarian throughout the 80s and 90s. Sandahl’s work as the brave warrior Valeria was very memorable. As I grew older, I would see more of Sandahl’s work in projects as diverse as All That Jazz, Xanadu and Stewardess School. I’d been hoping to interview Sandahl for a long time, but I never had any luck until this year.
A Chorus Line
I was first introduced to the work of my latest interview subject, Deborah Geffner, when I saw an unlikely duo of movies for the first time in the 00s, Bob Fosse’s magnum opus All That Jazz and the Cannon exploitation classic Exterminator 2. When I came across the trailer for Exterminator 2 on one of the Drive-In Delirium Blu-Rays put out by Australia’s Umbrella Entertainment, I noticed Ms. Geffner in the trailer, and I decided to reach out to her about an interview. With the help of her manager, Sharon Holleran, we spoke back in May, and now the interview is live. I hope you all enjoy getting to know this versatile talent.
I was first introduced to Audrey Landers’ work via the 1985 film version of A Chorus Line, where she played Val and memorably performed the song “Dance Ten, Looks Three”. As I’m always learning more about the pop culture of the past, especially the 1980s, I came to discover more about Audrey, and I was impressed. She acts, she sings, she composes songs and she’s logged more miles of travel than most of her contemporaries. I spoke to her on May 2nd, and I hope you all enjoy getting to know this versatile talent.
