1. Laurie Strode in HALLOWEEN, HALLOWEEN II and H20
2. Helen Tasker in TRUE LIES
3. Tess Coleman in FREAKY FRIDAY
4. Wanda in A FISH CALLED WANDA
5. Ophelia in TRADING PLACES
6. Shelley DeVoto in MY GIRL
7. Kim Hammond in PROM NIGHT
8. Megan Turner in BLUE STEEL
9. "Hitch" in ROAD GAMES
10. Elizabeth Solley in THE FOG
(tie) Alana Maxwell in TERROR TRAIN

Yes, I included Jamieís horror roles on my list. So sue me. I have not yet seen THE TAILOR OF PANAMA, I donít care to see VIRUS or DROWNING MONA, and Iím looking forward to TRUE LIES 2.

Curtis is a vastly underrated actress, sexy and focused in every performance. Whether playing a horror movie heroine or a comedic actress in a romantic or action film, JLC can do it all! Plus, she's Hollywood royalty, a devoted mother and children's author as well.

I liked best:
True Lies
H2O
A Fish Called Wanda
I did see Virus & Drowning Mona. She was the only reason to watch Mona, by the way & Virus is ok.

I agree she is really under rated.

1- A Fish Called Wanda (this is really by far her best role. The rest is not even close to that performance for me)
2- Trading Places (I love this movie and she made quite an interesting prostitute.)
3- Halloween (SCREAM OUT LOUD)
4- True Lies (witch proove she can play in any kinds of movies. Even along with Arnold)
5- Fierce Creature (cause this role make you remember A Fish Called Wanda alot)

1. Wanda in A FISH CALLED WANDA
2. Ophelia in TRADING PLACES
3.Shelley DeVoto in MY GIRL
4.Laurie Strode in HALLOWEEN

It's funny because when I first saw this topic it hit me how few truly good performances I've seen her in and yet like others have said she's very underrated as an actress.

Her role in Trading places for obvious reasons.

The Halloween films are her best roles. Her worst performance and film is definitely the horrid Fierce Creatures.

Overall, I think Curtis is an exceptionally well-rounded actress, but I need to catch up on some more of her films before I make a list.

Her roles in Halloween 1,2 were pretty good. (I hated her in H2O.)
But I loooved her character in drowning Mona! She was Fantastic in that movie.

I also thought Jamie Lee Curtis was great in Forever Young.
That scene were she kisses Mel Gibson is definitely touching.

Plus, JAMIE comes from Hollywood royalty (Tony Curtis + Janet Leigh = JLC), and she has the best body in Hollywood!

Any other Jamie-lovers in the house?

Off-topic, but who cares?? Did any of you know that it is HIGHLY likely that Jamie Lee Curtis was born a hermaphrodite! This is not some stupid tabloid, it is,....well, its not legitimate, because neither her parents or her doctors will confirm it, but it might as well be! They have been asked several times, but they have declined to comment each time. Pretty suspicious to me. Oh well, I dont care anyways; she is great. And I also, am voting for Trading Places. Very nice performance.

1. Wanda in A FISH CALLED WANDA
2. Laurie Strode in HALLOWEEN, HALLOWEEN II and H20
3. Ophelia in TRADING PLACES
4. Anna Winter in LOVE LETTERS
5. Elizabeth Solley in THE FOG
6. Jennifer Reston in DOMINICK AND EUGENE


A long time fave. I thought she was sexy in her Halloween period, even before her early 80's bombshell makeover.

Not exactly. JLC is what you would call an XY female. Its like a severe hormonal imbalance that's started since she was concieved. I have no idea about specifics, but it basically makes her Neuter.
and it IS well documented in medical books.
*Queen Liz the first was ALSO XY.. Apparenly that's why she lost her hair, couldn't have kids, etc.

My vote goes for her as Laurie Strode.
The woman kicks some serious ass!!!!
~and she was dammned good in A Fish Called Wanda too! god, I love that movie.
~~oh yeah, and Drowning Mona Se was GREAT in that!!!(cant believe nobody mentioned that one.)

I usually don't listen to tabloid trash, and I've NEVER heard that vicious story about JLC, BUT I have heard rumours about a famous older female movie star who is really a man, fooling millions of Americans for decades.

I know Quentin is going to kill me for saying this, but my money's on KIM NOVAK.

Kavan

That makes perfect sense to me!

JESUS D. GOD.... KIM NOVAK WAS A MAN?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!?

You mean this Kim Novak?

http://i.imdb.com/Photos/Mptv/1196/6040_0004.jpg

Looking at her feminine neck and shoulder line I'd be shocked and amazed if that were true. Why do you guys think she's packing both a rack and a unit? Actually, that's a scary thought...Kim Novak, the She-male! http://www.joblo.com/ubb/smile.gif

Great photo, I almost feel bad for saying that. Maybe its just one of those Hollywood urban legends. I also have my suspicions about Kathleen Turner, but we've all seen her naked in BODY HEAT, "The Graduate" on Broadway, etc. Unless she "tucks it under"!

Dorian
06-02-2002, 11:02 PM
Antonio, I looked at some of her older pictures and the face could frankly go either way with some really good make-up. But her general bone structure, even modern science can't alter that. They can chop off the wiener and add boobs with hormones, but bone structure they can't fix. Now Kathleen Turner, that I find believable. I'll have to look at some of her pictures. http://www.joblo.com/ubb/wink.gif

no doubt Holoween was her best role. A Fish was good too.

Professor Falk

Kim has always had: a deep voice, a squareish jaw and kind of a manly, boxy ass, so...

Having seen that pic, however, like Antonio I feel compelled to backtrack. Actually, I'd never heard that story before. This all reminds me of the bit about Cathy Moriarty in Soapdish... http://www.joblo.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Dorian
06-03-2002, 09:46 AM
Ah, Montana Moorehead. I like Soapdish...

Well guys, I was looking at pictures of Kathleen Turner, and her body has always struck me as unusual anyway, but... She has a very boxy torso, and her neck has some girth to it too. Her voice is rather deep, but then, she has very feminine hands. So who knows? I guess I'd have to have a feel between her legs like Crocodile Dundee did with that one older lady at that artsy party to make sure. http://www.joblo.com/ubb/wink.gif
