Candice Rialson

Candice Rialson is probably best known as the girl with the singing vagina in the 1977 drive-in sex comedy, Chatterbox. Before that came staring roles in equally trashy but fun movies like Candy Stripe Nurses, Summer School Teachers, Pets. and her greatest film, Hollywood Boulevard.

And it's because of those films would be my guess as to why the Hollywood mainstream never really embraced her. That's a real shame because she had talent and screen presence to be loved by more than just seventeen-year-old boys.

She did manage to land some smaller roles in a couple of bigger films like Clint Eastwood's The Eiger Sanction, but never seemed to be able to shake her b-movie roots.

Sadly, Candice Rialson passed away of liver disease in 2006 at the young age of 54, robbing the world forever of a potential comeback.
