Daily Heroine: Kira

Today’s Daily Heroine is: Kira, from the American fantasy film The Dark Crystal, which was released in 1982. There are not too many fantasy films around, and even fewer good ones, but The Dark Crystal is my favourite film in this genre. And a big reason for that is Kira. I think she is a wonderful character: she is very sweet and caring, but she is also incredibly courageous.๐Ÿ˜Š The Dark Crystal was of course created by the great puppeteer Jim Henson, so Kira was not played by a person, but by a puppet (which was operated by Kathryn Mullen and voiced by Lisa Maxwell, who gave Kira one of the sweetest voices I have ever heard๐Ÿ˜). However, in instances where a puppet was impractical, she is played by a live actor (Kiran Shah).

I’m always on the look out for new interesting and likeable heroines, so if you have a particular favourite, please tell me about her! Till tomorrow, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you.๐Ÿ˜Š

Daily Heroine: Susan Murphy AKA Ginormica

Today’s Daily Heroine is: Susan Murphy AKA Ginormica (voiced by the Hollywood actress Reese Witherspoon) from Monsters vs. Aliens, an American animated film released in 2009. This was another film which I came across by chance on TV, but one which I really enjoyed. It had humour, it had action and on top of that, it had humorous action.๐Ÿ˜ But the best part of it for me was the character of Ginormica. Not only is she a beautiful woman with a sweet personality, she also displays a touch of vulnerability at times, which is a quality I find quite endearing in a heroine.๐Ÿ™‚

Daily Heroine: Marti Malone

Yesterday’s (yes, this post is a day late๐Ÿ˜…) Daily Heroine was: Marti Malone (played by the very cute Gabrielle Anwar) from Body Snatchers, a 90s version of the classic novel The Body Snatchers. Ms Anwar is quite an accomplished actress, having also starred in the 90s film Scent of a Woman (with Al Pacino) and the 00s and 10s TV show Burn Notice (amongst many other things). However, I only know her from Body Snatchers, which I came across on TV one day by chance. I don’t think the movie is that good, but thanks to Ms Anwar’s performance, Marti Malone is a very likeable heroine. And you do get several nice views of her beautiful body.๐Ÿ˜

Daily Heroine: Princess Leia Organa

Today’s Daily Heroine is: Princess Leia Organa (played by the late Carrie Fisher) from the original Star Wars trilogy, which came out in the 70s and 80s (and also the more recent sequel trilogy). The Empire Strikes Back is my favourite movie of all time, so I guess it’s no surprise that Princess Leia has always been a big favourite of mine. She is feisty and fearless and very attractive, especially in Return of the Jedi. That sexy slave costume of hers is something that is etched into my memory for all eternity.๐Ÿ˜†

Daily Heroine: Kate Beringer

Today’s Daily Heroine is: Kate Beringer (played by the angelic Phoebe Cates), from Gremlins and Gremlins 2: The New Batch. Yes, Kate was my Featured Heroine from only a few weeks ago, but I did state that the first week of Daily Heroines would be my favourite heroines of all time. And in the film category, I decided I just couldn’t go past Kate (although there are others who I consider equally appealing). As I said in the aforementioned post, Kate is beautiful, brave and caring, and I have had a crush on her ever since the 80s.๐Ÿ˜†

Featured Heroine: Kate Beringer

Every year, when Christmas rolls around, I inevitably get the urge to rewatch what I like to refer to as my favourite Christmas movie of all time: Gremlins. I first saw Gremlins in the theatre as a kid, and it certainly made a big impression on me. There was a lot to like about it. It had a cute (albeit potentially dangerous) little critter. It had a likeable hero. It had an exciting adventure. And to top it all off, it had the gorgeous Phoebe Cates.

Happy Birthday Marion Michael!

Today would have been the 79th birthday of the late German actress Marion Michael. She is perhaps best known for the role of Liane, a quintessential jungle girl, which she played in two fifties’ films, called Liane, Jungle Goddess and Nature Girl and the Slaver (Liane, das Mรคdchen aus dem Urwald and Liane, die weiรŸe Sklavin respectively in German). This picture is a reimagining of Liane, Jungle Goddess as a Japanese comic (in Japanese, the title for this film is simply Naked Woman of the Jungle).

Liane, Jungle Goddessย is readily available on the internet in English and I suggest you search it out if you are a fan of classic pulp fiction about jungle girls. I found it quite entertaining and Marion Michael is absolutely stunning in it, no matter what state of dress she happens to be in.๐Ÿ˜‹ Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!๐Ÿ˜Š
