Nobody going to mention how great she looks in this film? 36 and really sexy.

Hell, Angie was hotter in her forties (when she was doing the Police Woman TV series) than most women half her age. She was at the peak of her beauty and sex appeal then.

Don't forget her various sex scenes in DePalma's "Dressed to Kill" -- from 1980 when she was in her forties. One of them in a shower uses a body double, but Angie's face does a lot of the work.

Angie Dickinson was one of the first actresses willing to be sexual -- and naked -- on her terms in movies. It was hardly exploitation. She told Burt Reynolds the key on the set was to walk out of the dressing room nude and stay that way for minutes on end until everybody was used to it. (They both had to do a nude scene in Sam Whiskey, though as I recall, not much was really shown.)

Point Blank came out in late 1967, about a year before the "R" rating came out in 1968 and "allowed" nudity in films. But the code was already breaking down and you can see Angie pushing the envelope in her bed scenes with John Vernon(as a man she hates and is setting up for Marvin to come in -- watch how quickly she drops the lover's attitude) and Lee Marvin. And we get that perfectly lit shadowy shot of a fully nude Angie getting dressed after bedding Vernon. You see everything..but nothing. So very 1967. So sexy...because its Angie doing it.

But the key thing is that while Angie Dickenson was WILLING to be nude(she famously did a tastefully bottomless Esquire cover around this time), she was quite sexy a lot of times and in a lot of movies WITHOUT being nude. Including her many dressed scenes in Point Blank.

Many thanks, Angie.

Angie looks great, sure. I just wish Boorman had resisted the urge to fragment the narrative; I got tired seeing scenes from the past constantly interrupting the narrative flow.

Oh, gosh, no. That was part of the point of the picture: the fragmented narrative is what made it so resonantly late-'60s!
