"Computer! Stop the flow of time!"

This week, by strange coincidence, turned out to be dedicated to some lovely ladies from sci-fi.  We kick things off with a quickie from a goofy favorite of mine, Luigi Cozzi's nonsensical Star Wars knock-off, Starcrash (1978), which featured the lovely Caroline Munro.  Munro, a successful model, never quite got beyond the arm candy parts she was offered in her film career despite being both a Bond girl and a regular at Hammer studios.  She was the lead in Cozzi's bizarro space opera alongside a very young Hasselhoff and a seemingly embarrassed Christopher Plummer...oh, and former child preacher, Marjoe Gortner.  And as I can't help but mention: how can you not love a movie with a villain named Zarth Arn?
