    Yeah, The Bitch and The Stud and a dumb but scary horror film she did with Ralph Bates that I can't remember the name of. They were all really fun!

    Yes, thank you, that's the one! I remember it really made me jump. (And it's interesting it's to see that Joanie had previous for firing guns in the woods in the vicinity of pretty blonde things.)

    And there's another horror film I vaguely where Joanie played an air hostess who got turned into a tree, or she married a tree or something like that.

    The only thing I remember* that it was her under the blanket, kinda like when Bobby got shot instead of JR.

    But I thought you meant this horror-movie:

    Looks more like "Emmanuelle", doesn't it?

    *I'm not 100% sure if that's what happened, but it's how I remember it.

    There's at least one tv movie in my list. And there are many movies that were released on VHS/DVD but not shown in the cinemas. I'd like to use these titles too if I think it fits the category.

    She did The Wayward Bus with Dan Dailey

    and then murdered his fellow lead on ITC's The Four Just Men, Jack Hawkins, in Land of the Pharaohs


    I fondly remember I Don't Want To Be Born/The Devil Within Her with Ralph Bates. Joan Collins plays a stripper who is cursed with a devil child after refusing sex with a dancing midget.

    Among other horror movie credits, Joan Collins also did a portmanteau horror movie, Tales From The Crypt, where she murders her husband on Christmas Eve and then gets troubled by a deranged Santa. I like to watch it every Christmas season. Especially with the Christmas Carols that play while she tries to clean up her husband's blood.

    Oh no, when I first saw that, I was only a kid. I had no idea who Joan Collins was (in fact, I think the first time I ever heard her name was on "Friends" where Monica bemoaned, "I'm Joan Collins!" after finding out she had sex with a high school senior; only like the high schooler, I still had no idea who Ms. Collins was, so therefore her name went in and out my ear at the time).

    It wasn't until years and years later as an adult, when somebody on the old forum mentioned that Joan played the witch in Hansel & Gretel, that I googled it and discovered that very episode.

    And you know something both funny and ironic? I think that's where I have seen Joan's best acting, playing a hideous green old witch with a nose like a droopy pickle. She played that part to the *hilt*, like she was having a blast. :D Plus there was that one line, when she was ranting about how Hansel remained thin: "I want FAT! Fat, fat, FAT! I want quivering, givvering, boy-flesh!" before breaking down into heaving breaths like she was having an orgasm... I mean DAMN. :lmao:

    I almost wish she had been a little like that as Alexis. Mostly during the more "camp" years like seasons 5 and 6. Other seasons Alexis would have been better off more subdued.
