SAVAGE STREETS
1984, MPM, 93 min, USA, Dir: Danny Steinmann

“There’s a time for revenge, and your time has come.” Linda Blair channels her inner Charles Bronson after a ruthless gang of drug-dealing dirtbags assaults her mute sister (played by scream queen Linnea Quigley) and murders her friend. Armed with crossbow, bear trap and a killer soundtrack, Blair seeks vengeance in this slice of ’80s cheese and sleaze.


AIRPORT 1975
1974, Universal, 107 min, USA, Dir: Jack Smight

When a 747 is rendered pilotless after crashing into a smaller plane, the control tower needs to figure out how to get someone aboard who can fly the jet. Charlton Heston and the ever-reliable George Kennedy struggle to save such passengers as Helen Reddy, Linda Blair, Gloria Swanson and Sid Caesar.


ROLLER BOOGIE
1979, Park Circus/MGM, 103 min, USA, Dir: Mark L. Lester

Rich girl Terri (Linda Blair) runs away from home to pal around with fun-loving roller skaters on the Venice boardwalk. When the local rink is threatened by a nefarious developer, the kids have to band together to stop him from turning their pleasure palace into a shopping mall. Mark L. Lester, who later solidified his audience-pleasing credentials with COMMANDO and FIRESTARTER, directed this rousing piece of pop entertainment.
