Adrienne Barbeau appeared on 95 episodes of the sitcom Maude, starring Bea Arthur, in the '70s -- not a bad gig for an actor. But Adrienne Barbeau is best known as a sexy screen siren, thanks to a quick, intense barrage of films featuring her dramatic and physical talents. From 1980-82, she starred in The Fog, Swamp Thing and Creepshow, and also had significant supporting roles in Escape From New York and The Cannonball Run. It was a good time to be Adrienne Barbeau. Here she is staying hydrated on the set of Swamp Thing with co-star Dick Durock, a 6'5" beast of a man who portrayed the titular movie monster.

The creepy Grady daughters in The Shining (1980) play on our natural fascination with, and even fear of, twins. Do twins communicate telepathically? When one twin cuts a finger, does the other one feel pain? That sort of stuff. But here's an interesting detail -- it's clearly stated in the movie that the Grady girls were 8 and 10 years old when they died. They were played by twin actresses, Lisa and Louise Burns, but they weren't twins. The Shining is one of the most over-analyzed films ever made, and the twins-who-aren't-twins have sent the over-analyzers on all sorts of tangents. You wonder whether director Stanley Kubrick pulled this sort of thing intentionally, just to mess with the obsessives.
