Colleen Camp movies began her career with sassy, lightweight comedies like “The Swinging Cheerleaders” (1974), which accentuated her California-bred beauty, and has remained an underrated favourite among movie lovers for nearly four decades. She occasionally had roles that allowed her to show off her comedic skills, such as “Smile” (1975) and “They All Laughed” (1981), both directed by her one-time boyfriend Peter Bogdanovich. She settled into a succession of funny character roles in films like “Valley Girl” (1983), “Wayne’s World” (1992), and “Election” (1999), while forging a second career as a producer, frustrated by a lack of substantive roles. Camp’s career remained active far into her fifth decade, demonstrating both her determination and adaptability. Let’s have a look on best of her films.
