  1. Jennifer Beals, Flashdance, 1982.      The “nation-wide search“ (of LA…!!) came down to  20 possibilities for flashprancerAlex Owens.  Wing, Jamie Lee Curtis, Bo Derek, Janice Dickinson, Bridget Fonda, Jennifer Grey (yet she won Dirty Dancing), Melanie Griffith, Daryl Hannah, Mariel Hemingway, Helen Hunt (hated the script), Jennifer Jason Leigh, Heather Locklear, Andie MacDowell, Kathy Najimy, Tatum O’Neal, Michelle Pfeiffer,  Kyra Sedgwick, Sharon Stone  and Debra Winger. Pix of the final three – Beals, Wing and Demi Moore – were shown to the studio’s  construction guys by Paramount suits asking: “Which one do you most wanna fuck?”  Dissolve.
