Helen Slater


  1. Diane Lane, The Outsiders, 1982.      Mal paso. Dumb move. Slater rejected an offer from Francis Coppola to play Cherry Valance – and, thereby, Patty in Rumble Fish, 1983, his second consecutive film of a novel by the 16-year-old SE Hinton. And for why? To become Supergirl. Owch!
  2. Glenn Close, Fatal Attraction, 1987.
  3. Andie McDowell, sex, lies and videotape, 1989.       Good move by exciting, new auteur Steven Soderbergh… because Helen’s agent also handled James Spader, who read it, loved it… and also suggested Peter Gallagher.
  4. Daphne Ashbrook, Doctor Who (The Movie), TV, 1996.
