Deathsport with David Carradine & Claudia Jennings

deathsportHere Here I am as a space alien motorcycle biker in the 1978 movie Deathsport starring the late David Carradine, and Playboy Playmate Claudia Jennings. The film was a piece of shit, one of the worst movies of all time. Do you recognize my suit? This was the same suit worn by the apes in the epic movie Planet of the Apes. Hollywood routinely re-uses costumes to cut costs.

Carradine was okay, but I had the hots for Claudia Jennings, and tried to flirt with her. Who did I think I was? A lowly bit player trying to get the star in her trailer and make love to her. Come to think of it, I was almost as shallow as she was. We should have hit it off.

Instead she insulted me. Claudia, her real name was Mimy Chesterton, couldn’t act her way out of a paper bag. When she wasn’t performing, she was causing havoc on the set. The director ordered her to her trailer and she threw a tantrum. She was later killed in a car wreck.

I guess I was lucky. You should be careful what you wish for.
