Caddyshack, Tron actress Cindy Morgan dead at 69

I never saw Tron. I suppose I may not have recognized her in anything since Caddyshack, and may not have thought of her since then. Since I didn’t know whether she was still alive, it’s not difficult to accept her death, but since she is fixed in my mind at 25 or so, the hard thing it to accept is that she was 69.

Her topless scene in Caddyshack (1980):

Great scenes, but (sigh) if only Magdalena could have looked like she did 13 years ago, in the first Rozyczka, when she was one of the world’s great beauties (SEE BELOW). She was 32 then, 45 now. That said, her figure still looks great!

Defoe went through all of the episodes of this classic series. It has spectacular nude scenes filled with beautiful women, some of them contributing full-frontal nudity. Only one problem. The series tried to replicate authentic period lighting, which in the 18th century was, of course, candlelight for indoor scenes. (And there are no outdoor scenes!)

Damned authenticity!

Nadine Spinoza wasn’t as intellectual as her great-uncle Baruch, but she was a damn sight less boring. And I assume she looked much better naked, although nude pics of Spinoza hard to come by. Kidding aside, Spinoza was actually very handsome as a young man, at least by philosopher standards, but I’ll bet he was already boring.

As for Nadine, she sort of disappeared from the industry in 2002, and I don’t know why.

Jumping off from the comment section:

A superb collection of images, inspired by this legendary paperback:

Example: Joey Bishop sings C&W – in an ill-fitting cowboy hat that he tilts at a rakish angle, as if he were his buddy Sinatra wearing a fedora.

“Joey not only can’t sing, he hardly even tries. His whispery, tentative voice is barely there … It’s like listening to a Ray Price concert, except that Price’s microphone has accidentally been set up at a dark corner table where a depressed, nebbishy accountant is drinking double martinis and singing along halfheartedly to the sad music to take his mind off the fact that his date didn’t show up.”

That book is a great read, by the way, and you can buy it for five bucks! (I have my own well-worn copy.)
