Be A Winner Man or Forget It: Michael Blodgett RIP

Just found out via Final Girl that Michael Blodgett, aka Lance Rocke from Russ Meyer's BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS, has died at the age of 67. Blodgett's other acting credits include ISIS, ELECTRA WOMAN AND DYNA GIRL and NIGHT GALLERY, among others.

I was not aware that he had turned his attention to novels and screenwriting after his on-camera career slowed down and he worked on RENT-A-COP, TURNER AND HOOCH and the Chuck Norris flick HERO AND THE TERROR (which was based on his source novel)!

BTW, I had never read Final Girl until this morning but folks here might dig it, especially her on-going Amicus Week.

Check out the trailer for BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS below...
