Featured Icon: Veronica Lake – Film Actress, Pin-up Model

Image
Veronica Lake (November 14, 1922 – July 7, 1973) was an American film actress and pin-up model. She received both popular and critical acclaim, most notably for her femme fatale roles in film noir with Alan Ladd during the 1940s, and was well-known for her peek-a-boo hairstyle. Her breakthrough film was I Wanted Wings in 1941, a major hit in which Lake played the second female lead and was said to have stolen scene after scene from the rest of the cast. This success was followed by Hold Back the Dawn later that year. She had starring roles in more popular movies, including Sullivan's Travels, This Gun for Hire, I Married a Witch, The Glass Key, and So Proudly We Hail!. Looking back at her career years later, Lake remarked, "I never did cheesecake; I just used my hair." For a short time during the early 1940s Lake was considered one of the most reliable box office draws in Hollywood. She became known for onscreen pairings with actor Alan Ladd. At first, the couple w

Girls Who Kick Ass! Fiona Glenanne

Image
Fiona Glenanne is a fictional character in the television series Burn Notice , portrayed by Gabrielle Anwar .  According to Fiona's biography from USA Network: “She was affiliated with the IRA for 14 years but ran afoul of her old organization because she did not like being told what to do. She has since gone out on her own, picking up odd jobs and using her skills in explosives, picking locks, tracking, weapons, and hand-to-hand combat to make a living.” She currently is working with Michael Westen, Sam Axe and since season 4, Jesse Porter, doing odd jobs, as well as being an unlicensed bounty hunter. She has a fondness for explosives, always keeping some on hand. Fiona has a tendency to shoot (or blow up) first and ask questions later. She is a brilliant strategist, but her preferred method is going in with guns blazing or IEDs exploding, and Michael frequently has to hold her back. Fiona becomes especially upset when someone abuses or endangers children. Fiona also has

Profile: Phantom Lady

Image
Today, comics readers are familiar to the point of stultification with the sight of a female superhero fighting crime while wearing a swimsuit (or less). Phantom Lady is tied with The Black Cat for the dubious distinction of having been the first. Both debuted in the August, 1941 issues of their original venues — the latter in Harvey's Pocket Comics, and the former in Quality's Police Comics #1. It was, however, Phantom Lady who lasted longer and achieved greater notoriety. In fact, while The Black Cat never did anything more socially unacceptable than a few mild cheesecake shots, Phantom Lady made the big time — one of her covers was printed in Dr. Fredric Wertham's 1954 anti-comic book tome, Seduction of the Innocent, as an illustration of an intolerable (by 1950s standards) corrupter of American youth. At first, she wasn't at all that way. Like Doll Man, Blackhawk and quite a few other early Quality Comics characters, she originally came out of the Eisner-Iger S

Buffy was portrayed by Kristy Swanson in the film, and later by Sarah Michelle Gellar in the television series. Giselle Loren has lent her voice to the character in both the Buffy video games and an unproduced animated series. Buffy is the protagonist of the story, and the series depicts her everyday life as she grows up. In the film, she is a high school cheerleader who learns that she is the Slayer, a Chosen One gifted with the strength and skills to fight vampires, demons, and the forces of darkness.

Profile: Sherry The Showgirl

It isn't quite true to say the 21st-century output of Marvel Comics consists of all superheroes, all the time. But — close enough. But back in the 1950s, Marvel published a pile of material in other genres, such as westerns (e.g., The Rawhide Kid), jungle heroes (e.g., Lo-Zar), funny stuff (e.g., Homer the Happy Ghost), alliteratively-titled women in traditional female roles. Yes, that was once a genre at Marvel, ranging from the gloriously glamorous Millie the Model to the merely mundane Tessie the Typist, with Nellie the Nurse in-between. Sherry the Showgirl fell toward Millie's end of the spectrum. Actually, the whole genre was part of a larger genre of young female protagonists such as Della Vision, Patty Powers and Patsy Walker, whose major raison d'etre was to provide an excuse to till comic books up with cheesecake, i.e., pictures of attractive women, or as many comics fans like to call them, "good girl art". Sherry (surname Storm) debuted

Profile: Princess Pantha

Image
PRINCESS PANTHA The "white jungle goddess" comic book genre started in 1938, with the American debut of Sheena, Queen of the Jungle. from Fiction House magazines (Sky Girl, Firehair). But for a long time it consisted only of Sheena and one or two knock-offs (like the same company's Camilla). It wasn't until the middle of the 1940s that its representatives, such as Rulah, Judy of the Jungle, Tygra of the Flame People and Tiger Girl really proliferated. For example, Princess Pantha (no relation), published by a company variously known as Standard, Nedor, or Pines Comics (whose other female protagonists include Jetta of the 21st Century and The Woman in Red), didn't turn up until 1946. It was in the 56th issue of Thrilling Comics, dated October of that year, that the company (which called itself "Better Publications" just then) introduced Princess Pantha. Unlike most, she didn't arrive in the jungle by accident (such as being born there). She was a c
