Grumbled Kerr: "To realize that I have drifted so far from the mainstream that a movie could be successful enough to justify five sequels and a Roman numeral without my ever having heard of it."

Witness a film casting notice in a recent issue of Drama-logue, calling for a blonde female, "20-30, tall, outrageous, Brigitte Nielsen-type."
