Cult film star Liz Renay
Psychotronic & Sexploitation film star Liz Renay crossed the Rainbow bridge to SummerIsle. What a great epitaph: Cult film star...Stripper...mob connections:
...But she is perhaps best known for her starring role in the 1977 John Waters fairy-tale melodrama “Desperate Living,”...Ms. Renay played Muffy St. Jacques, who kills her drug-tripping babysitter by smothering her in a bowl of dog food...
Here's the kicker:
...Her parents, William and Ada Philips Dobbins, were strict evangelical Christians. As a teenager, Ms. Renay ran away from home to Las Vegas, where she found work as a showgirl...
She worked and did appearances nearly till the time she died.
