karen-black-easyrider-1 Karen Black, the amazing and ubiquitous actress who was a 70s sex symbol, passed away after a long battle with cancer on Thursday. Karen Black was 74.

Karen Black was in so many movies and television shows that it’s hard to think of what she wasn’t in over the years. There were the movies like Easy Rider, Five Easy Pieces, The Great Gatsby, Rhinoceros, The Day of the Locust, Nashville, Airport 1975, Dogtown, Mirror, Mirror, and Irene in Time . Then there were the television shows like Mannix, Saturday Night Live, Profiler, The Hitchhiker, Adam-12, The Dean Martin Comedy Hour, and Miami Vice, and my favorite, here role in Trilogy of Terror.

That body of work makes Karen Black (what I like to say) an indelible part of American Culture. But if you’ve never seen the totally freaky Trilogy of Terror (1975), which should be remade, here’s the famous scene that still holds up in 2013:

Enough said.

Stay tuned.
