Sarah Holcomb in Animal House (1978)

Here’s a video clip of the famous scene. As if you need to be reminded. Any baby boomers reading this probably had a crush on her back in the late 70s.

Her acting career was short-lived, consisting of just four films over a two-year period. Her two memorable roles were in Caddyshack (1980) and Animal House (1978). Her career was halted by substance abuse and schizophrenia.

The 2004 film Stateside is allegedly a roman-a-clef about her descent through alcohol, drugs, and mental illness. Rachael Leigh Cook plays the Sarah Holcomb character.
