Jamie Lee Curtis

What can I say about this ultimate lady? Let me start with some titles. The Fog, Halloween, Halloween 2, Terror Train, Prom Night. That’s right, she is one of the greatest “final girls” or “scream queens” ever and all before her later films of a lighter but comically genius fare, which include A Fish Called Wanda (wonderful comedy from writer John Cleese of Monty Python) and True Lies (with Arnold Schwarzenegger). I love True Lies and I don’t feel guilty about it; Everyone should come ‘on out and confess their love for this movie. Like Melanie Griffith, Curtis’s mom was also a Hitchcock blonde: the famous Janet Leigh, best known for her role as Marion Crane in Psycho. As a side note, I just re-watched Halloween H20: 20 Years Later (a redundant title if there ever was one). Curtis’s character, Laurie Strode, finally faces her fear, The Shape, and man she kicks ass! This is one of the most empowering horror movies I have ever seen! As another side note, I didn’t mean to give her really tiny hands in the drawing of her. I assure you, the real Curtis has normal size hands….. I think.

This is just a sample of some of the people that I really love. I could go on and on and on and could list thousands or maybe tens of thousands more, so let’s stop here!
