Fantastic Femmes--Ola Ray

Former Playboy PlayMate Ola Ray is best-known for her scream-queen performance in the groundbreaking Michael Jackson video Thriller, but she also did several movies, including genre flix, during her too-brief showbiz career.
Today, she's a stay-at-home mom raising a teen-age daughter.
Ola recently sued Michael Jackson for unpaid royalties from Thriller. (The video's co-writer / director, John Landis, is also suing for the same reason)

Genre appearances include...
Thriller (Michael's Girl)
Beverly Hills Cop II (PlayMate)
Night Stalker aka Man Who Could Not be Killed
(Sable Fox)
Note: this is NOT Kolchak: the Night Stalker
AutoMan "Murder MTV" (Joanne)
Fear City (Honey)
10 to Midnight (Ola)

Note: normally, I post a couple of large pix for a Fantastic Femme entry, but most of the Ola Ray shots I have are from her Playboy shoot, and unusable in a G-rated blog!
If you want to see them, you'll have to Google them... ;-)
