The Explanation
(for those who require one)

And, of course, that is what all of this is -- all of this: the one song, ever changing, ever reincarnated, that speaks somehow from and to and for that which is ineffable within us and without us, that is both prayer and deliverance, folly and wisdom, that inspires us to dance or smile or simply to go on, senselessly, incomprehensibly, beatifically, in the face of mortality and the truth that our lives are more ill-writ, ill-rhymed and fleeting than any song, except perhaps those songs -- that song, endlesly reincarnated -- born of that truth, be it the moon and June of that truth, or the wordless blue moan, or the rotgut or the elegant poetry of it. That nameless black-hulled ship of Ulysses, that long black train, that Terraplane, that mystery train, that Rocket '88', that Buick 6 -- same journey, same miracle, same end and endlessness."
-- Nick Tosches, Where Dead Voices Gather

Wow! Thanks for posting this. Have you seen her movie called Sweet William? There's a nude scene of her that I linked to at my blog.

Jenny will always have a special place in my heart as the first naked woman I ever saw in a movie. It was Walkabout, I was 7 and it was on a bizarre double bill with Escape from the Planet of the Apes. I saw her many years later on Broadway in a production of Breaking the Code (about computer inventor and cryptographer Alan Turing), which starred Derek Jacobi and featured Michael Gough in a supporting role.

Ok...she was the sympathetic nurse-love interest in An American Werewolf in London.

The rabbit appears with Jen in I Start Counting, which is an obscure little masterpiece.

Oh man. I had such a crush on her when I was a teenager.
