LOVELY, LYRICAL, LILTING SUE LYON FANTASY MEMORIAL TRIBUTE

Michele Lee, Sue Lyon and Hilarie Thompson on FANTASY ISLAND Year: 1978
We learned about the death of this site's patron starlet SUE LYON only minutes ago: She's an actress featured quite extensively here on Cult Film Freak, and unlike most sites, her later, more obscure drive-in exploitation flicks are what's mostly covered here...

As of the tail-end of 2019 (she died December 26th), there isn't even a LOLITA review, the titular role that made her famous, or her other temptress turn in THE NIGHT OF THE IGUANA, flirting with another iconic British actor, Richard Burton, after having pretty much killed her faithfully perverse step-dad James Mason in the Stanley Kubrick classic...

Over a decade later she appeared on a popular television series towards the end of her career, with only an impossible-to-find TV-movie TOWING and the creature feature ALLIGATOR after this third to last vehicle with Sue on FANTASY ISLAND, one of four lovely ladies on a ten-year reunion from their days as popular high school cheerleaders circa 1968…

The episode is titled Anniversary/Reunion from 1978’s first season of a show seeming like a stoned LOVE BOAT, also harboring weekly guest stars: There's a stalker stalking Sue and her former pom-pom friends Michele Lee, Hilarie Thompson and Pamela Franklin. And here are some colorful screen captures in a Cult Film Freak canvas paying tribute to an unforgettable, insanely gorgeous and downright legendary starlet's starlet.
