Marcia Strassman: 12 Things You Didn’t Know About Her Career

26 October 2014 9:15 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Marcia Strassman made her mark as the 1970s version of Alice Kramden, playing the (mostly) understanding wife of Gabe Kaplan on ABC’s “Welcome Back, Kotter.”

But Strassman, who died Friday at 66, was in showbiz for more than 10 years before she wound up on the sitcom that became a pop culture touchstone, in part because it made a star of John Travolta.

Lithe and raspy-voiced, Strassman began her showbiz career on stage and also tried to become a pop star in the mid-1960s before her thesping work took off. After she got her break on “Kotter,” she became active in the Screen Actors Guild.

Here are 12 things you didn’t know about Strassman’s early career:

She got off to a good start in the pages of Variety. Her first reference came in the Sept. 11, 1963 edition, in an item noting that she would replace Liza Minnelli in Off Broadway’s “Best Foot Forward, »

Reeker (2005) review

8 July 2014 12:13 AM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Reviewed by Chris Wright, MoreHorror.com

Reeker (2005)

Directed By: Dave Payne

Written By: Dave Payne

Starring: Devon Gummersall (Jack), Derek Richardson (Nelson), Tina Illman (Gretchen), Scott Whyte (Trip), Arielle Kebbel (Cookie), Michael Ironside (Henry), Eric Mabius (Radford), Marcia Strassman (Rose), David Hadinger (The Reeker), Les Jankey (Trucker), Carole Ruggier (Mom), Paul Butcher (Kid), Stephen Ziotnick (Officer Ben), Christopher Boyer (Officer Mansfield), Wesley Thompson (Officer Taylor)

Reeker” is an interesting take on a slasher film. The decade of the slasher has long past so most films that take on that sub-genre are repetitions of previous movies that many of us have long watched. I was impressed that “Reeker” took a formula that has been beaten to death and added a nice twist to it.

Reeker” centers on a bunch of young adults stranded in a desert rest stop only to be soon attacked by a mysterious creature while they are all having visions. »
