For three days straight, avant-garde film maker Stephen Lewicki had been holed up in his un-airconditioned west side studio, poring over hundreds of resumes to find an actress to star in 'A Certain Sacrifice'. Since he had to scrounge up financing as he went along, it took Lewicki two years to make the erotic thriller.

Madonna wrote a 3-page letter to the director of 'A Certain Sacrifice', Stephen Lewicki, begging him to cast her in his movie. The letter began:"Dear Stephen, I was born and raised in Detroit where I began my career in petulance and precociousness. By the time I was in the fifth grade I knew I either wanted to be a nun or a movie star. Nine months in a convent cured me of the first disease. During highschool I became slightly schizophrenic as I couldn't choose between class virgin or the other kind. Both of them had their values as far as I could see."
Madonna was allegedly paid just $100 for this, her first film role.

Although they were never lovers, one afternoon while they sat on a bench in Battery Park Madonna invited 'A Certain sacrifice' director Stephen Lewicki to lick blueberry yogurt out of her ear. He did. Lewicki later said, "That woman has more sensuality in her ear than most women have anywhere on their bodies."
