If you have read my Blog before, you know that I am a huge Carol Lynley fan. But even I can admit that post-1978, Carol’s career went straight down the toilet. She had one opportunity to make it big when she was the first choice to play Valene in a two-part episode of Dallas but had to turn it down for personal reasons.
Most of what Carol did film-wise in the 80s and 90s is treadful except for her brief rols as a DA in the violent cult film Vigilante (1982), her mother from hell in the suspenseful thriller Blackout (1988), and her turn as a pistol-packing thief partnered with Barbara McNair in the entertaining road movie ala Thelma and Louise Neon Signs (1996). In the latter, Carol is a hoot playing a foul-mouthed meanie. Check out the trailer on YouTube.
