Wasn't she in one of the famous cut scenes from 'Star Wars'? It was someone like her.

Never seen 'Voyage of the Rock Aliens'.

Is it just me, or is that image of her on the 'Butterfly' cover almost totally revealing?

Pia Zadora is the reason I believe in God. She was put here on Earth for a reason. That reason is: Pia Zadora - You Bring Out The Lover In Me (youtube)

"Set in the year 1937 in a small Nevada desert mining town, Jess Tyler is a hermit who works in a near a silver mine as the caretaker.
His wife deserted him 10 years earlier and his teenage daughter Kady ran off and gave birth to the illegitimate child of a rich man, named Wash, who refused to marry her.
Wash's father owns the mine, so Kady decides its riches should belong to her.
She returns home and tries to persuade Jess to let her have it, going to any length, including the seduction of her own father." (Wiki)

Haha, it took over six years but i finally watched Butterfly (1982).
Its directed by Matt Cimber and is based on the 1947 novel The Butterfly by James M. Cain (The Postman Always Rings Twice).
The film stars Stacy Keach, Pia Zadora, Orson Welles, Lois Nettleton and Edward Albert.

Butterfly received 10(!) nominations for the 1982 Golden Raspberry Awards so is it pure crap?
Well, no. Keach gives a good performance here plus i like the Ennio Morricone score and the cinematography looks pretty decent.
Zadora looks great but if youre only looking for skin, you will be disappointed.

Sometimes the dialogue makes you laugh but i cant help but like these controversial films.
Now i need to find Fake-Out (1982) which was also directed by Cimber.

Wow atomik, I don't even know how you found this thread! I don't think I've ever seen a Pia Zadora movie. I just remember her always being plastered across the tabloids. She was famous for being famous, kind of like the Kartrashians of the 80's. Wasn't she married to some billionaire at one time also?

She was also known for infamously winning the Golden Globe for Best New Star for Butterfly, beating out the likes of Kathleen Turner in Body Heat and Elizabeth McGovern in Ragtime. It turns out her husband wined and dined HFPA voters into watching Zadora sing at one of her concerts which could be one of the reasons why it was rumored that her hubby at the time bought it for her. The Best New Star category was eventually removed from the next year's Golden Globes while Zadora and her husband eventually divorced in 1995.

Haha, everything is allowed in love, war and movie business [Big Grin]

But yeah, it seems that her israeli born husband Meshulam Riklis made her a "star" basically out of nothing.
And i thank him for that [Wink]

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians. Too funny!

Trivia: Zadora was once married to Jonathan Kaufer, writer/director of one of the most obscure, underrated 80s comedies, Soup for One. That film has an outstanding soundtrack, in addition to being pretty sharp in a Grade-B Woody Allen kind of way: Saul Rubinek is a sad sack looking for his dream girl. He actually goes to a police sketch artist to get a picture of her. Eventually, he meets her, as played by the charming Marcia Strassman from Welcome Back, Kotter. It's extremely hard to see because I don't think that it's ever had a DVD release.

Watch it. It can only possibly help you to appreciate her acting ability in Butterfly all the more...
