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.

NBC is no longer moving forward with its planned live version of the musical “Hair.”

“Hair” was supposed to air on May 19, which would have put it up against the series finale of “Game of Thrones,” which will be a major TV event, perhaps THE TV event of the 21st century. Hair would have been crushed like a bug. I don’t know why they didn’t just move the date, but it may have to do with the weak ratings for the recent broadcast of “Rent.”

“According to an individual with knowledge of the decision, NBC is not completely abandoning live musicals, but will no longer plan on airing them as regularly as they have in the past.”
