Linda Blair Nude: Sexy Italian Playboy Photo Spread and Oui Magazine: She Was Regan In "The Exorcist" 1973

     Linda Denise Blair was outstanding as "Regan" in THE EXORCIST (1973) which was one of the most talked about  popular horror movies of all time! Exorcist II: The Heretic was not bad either and she looked simply gorgeous!

       In the 1990′s Linda has since worked in many films, including the Exorcist spoof, Repossessed (1990), and a cameo role in Scream (1996). In 1997, she appeared in a Broadway revival of Grease. She was cast as a regular in the BBC television show, L.A. 7 (2000). Linda Blair hosted Fox Family’s Scariest Places On Earth (2000-6). She appeared in the 2009 documentary Confessions of a Teenage Vigilante, discussing her role as Brenda in Savage Streets (1984). The documentary is included as a bonus feature on the 2009 DVD release of the film.

Birthday: January 22nd, 1959
      Her big breasts during her more "rubenesque" days added spice to her performances during the 1980's and were certainly very entertaining to say the least! The sexy Linda Blair became a staple of deliciously sensual 1970s TV movies such as Sweet Hostage (1975) and Born Innocent (1974), theatrical features such as Airport 1975 (1974), Roller Boogie (1979) and then went on to appear in popular B-pictures.

      In Linda's personal life, the fan magazines started running pictures of her sneaking cigarettes or worse, including this shot with two of the entertainment world’s most extreme personalities, off his rocker rocker Keith Moon and porn actress Linda Lovelace, the woman who popularized the term "deep throat" long before Bob Woodward co-opted it. The poor kid never stood a chance! Before long Linda was, although still underage, deeply involved with singer/actor Rick Springfield. Eventually, Springfield was replaced in her love life by notorious funk rocker, Rick James. Reports of drugs surfaced, then an arrest for cocaine (that she still claims was all a misunderstanding.

         Linda has contributed quite a lot to the horror and exploitation genres, giving us films like Hell Night (1981), Chained Heat (1983), Savage Streets (1984), Red Heat (1985) and Savage Island (1985). Linda appeared nude in Chained Heat  for the first time on screen with gorgeous German blonde Sybil Danning lusting after busty Linda in prison! Her onstage appearance in the lead of the play, Women Behind Bars helped perpetuate her bad girl image. Savage Streets (1984) offered more great exploitation fare with Linda nude again and also kicking ass and takin’ names as an unlikely action hero.

Linda still does occasional TV work, sometimes to promote animal rights like when in 2010 she was on the cable series "Jury Duty" and "Pit Boss" with Shorty Rossi who developed a cigar with master blender A.J. Fernandez called the Diesel Shorty which is excellent! In late 2010, it was announced that Linda was in talks to return to horror films for the 2011 Cousin Sarah. She appears in the 2011 Rick Springfield documentary Affair of the Heart, and was a panelist in a 2011 episode of The Joy Behar Show.

Linda's  dedication to animal rights and her humanitarian work must be commended.  She's also a vegan and not only does she support organizations like PETA and Feed the Children, she has her own charity called the Linda Blair WorldHeart Foundation which helps rescue abused and neglected animals.

The Hammer Horror Blu-Ray Campaign

Sign the petition to ask Warner Bros to issue their Classic Hammer Horror titles on Blu-Ray, fully restored and mastered in 1080p for maximum picture quality!

Sign here:

Why is this important? WB’s Hammer titles represent the British company’s very best output, and for many reasons, including cultural and historical, we believe these films should be restored and released in the new digital medium without delay.

Major studios are reluctant to release most of their catalog titles on BD due to the expense of scanning and restoration, as well as limited shelf space in stores. Instead, they focus on a limited group of films that they consider big moneymakers. Our goal is to show them that there is a robust market out there that goes beyond blockbusters. Supporting this campaign is a vote for classic films in general, and for greater diversity of titles in the home video marketplace.

The importance of this campaign to cinefiles can not be overstated. That’s why Guillermo del Toro, Bob Burns, Douglas McKeown, Mark Verheiden, Shane Briant, Svengoolie, and Chad Crawford Kinkle have all signed!

Warner Bros is listening! Make your voice heard NOW!
