Freaking more Kismet. While writing this post I looked up Mary Woronov’s filmography and what drew my attention was not her work with Andy Warhol or Roger Corman; not her nude scenes or her cult queen status; it was her last film appearance in the movie Attack of the 50 Foot Cheerleader. I was debating whether to allude to her but this coincidence earned her a footnote in my novel.-
Woronov’s birth in Florida gave me reason to allude to her and she has an interesting resume as an actress, artist and writer. Art inspired elements of this chapter so her Warhol link made her a decent fit even without the 50 foot cheerleader role. Her website says, she and Jim Morrison were born on the same day and year, 12-18-43 but it fails to mention they were both born in Florida to military families. And I agree with the site ; those photo booth shots show she has knockout status.
