Michael D Hamersky On Comics Revisits  His Take On... 
Adrienne Barbeau 
From Maude To Horror Movies To Comic Books!


TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3841 -    It's been a while since I last blogged about Adrienne Barbeau in this blog.  I actually posted a blog about her back in February of 2007.  That blog has been in my most viewed archived blogs list for a few days, so I thought I would re-visit it, by updating it here today.

Here's what I posted in that archived blog:

Adrienne Barbeau....went from the TV Show 'Maude' to HoRRoR movies...
Adrienne, born in 1945, played Maude's daughter on the TV Show from 1972 - 1978.

After the series ended, Barbeau was cast by her then-husband, director John Carpenter, in his 1980 horror film, The Fog.

This was her first theatrical film appearance. The film was released  on February 1, 1980 and was considered a film success, grossing over $21 million in the United States.  This helped established  Adrienne as a HoRRoR / Sci-Fi genre film star.

She then appeared in a number of early 1980s horror and science fiction films, several of which have now become favorite cult classics, including Escape From New York, Creepshow, and Swamp Thing (a comic book movie based on the DC monster comic).  See pics at the top of this blog for comic book movie adaptation.

Although Adrienne had a top selling cheesecake poster of herself in 1978, she had not posed for Playboy or other similiar mags. The Swamp Thing Movie however featured a scene of her wading through the Swamp Thing's swamp, (picture top of the blog at the left). Actually the scene on the film one sheet was used for Swamp Thing Annual #1 in 1982.

Adrienne played the  love interest of Dr. Alec Holland, who would become the Swamp Thing. This would be the first and last comic book based movie that she would star in.

Okay... Here's the updated info since that 2007 blog:

To date, Swamp Thing is the only comic book movie that Adrienne has appeared in.  Plus there is a comic book of Swamp Thing with her likeness on the front cover, as mentioned above.
