BEWARE! THIS COULD BE A CAREER KILLER
In 1972 as a favor to her friend and Malibu neighbor Larry Hagman making his directorial debut, Carol Lynley guest starred as Blob food in the cheesy horror comedy with a hippie beat Beware! The Blob a.k.a. Son of Blob. Hagman also got such notable actors as Godfrey Cambridge, Burgess Meredith, and Shelley Berman to do bits as victims of the Blob while Robert Walker had the Steve McQueen role as the hero.
It was nice that Carol was loyal to her friend but after just turning down a role in Five Easy Pieces this was not a good career move. Hopefully, she got a boat load of money for it. Thankfully, she did The Night Stalker and The Poseidon Adventure next.
