Of all the original cast members of Twin Peaks, Joan Chen’s nudography is most similar to Madchen Amick’s, in that she did not do many nude scenes, but did manage one world-class scene: the lesbian scene with Anne Heche in Wild Side.

Unlike Amick, however, Chen never did any lower frontal nudity. Despite that, she took the #16 slot in our annual poll of the top nude scenes in 1995, the very dawn of the Scoopy era.

There are two versions of Wild Side. One is 90 minutes long, while the other runs more than 110 minutes. I discussed the differences in my review.

Also in this series:

Part 1 covers Madchen Amick;

Part 2 covers Sherilyn Fenn

Part 3 covers Sheryl Lee

Part 4 covers Lara Flynn Boyle

Part 6 covers Heather Graham

Part 7 covers Anne Gaybis

Part 8 covers Moira Kelly

Incidentally, when I post these collections to the Fun House, there are film clips for all of the entries.

I can’t tell if we are looking at a nipple area or a nipple patch. I guess a good rule of thumb might be: if you can’t tell that, it’s not much of a scene.

An even better rule of thumb is this: since I don’t care which it is, it’s REALLY not a good scene.

Anyway, as ol’ Mel Allen used to say, “You make the call.”
