Comments: From the Webmaster:  Absolutely brilliant satire documenting the fall of a once famous rock band.

Comments:  From Miss Josh Emmett:  When I first saw this at the movie theatre, I was with my peers:  people who knew, were in or worked for rock bands in the 60s and 70s.  (I was in the road crew of several major bands in promotions and photography.)  We laughed ourselves silly...but it was also a bit close to home, and made us stop and look at ourselves.  The next time I saw it, about a week later, it was in a theatre with young people, and the 80s crowd didn't really get it.  They laughed at all the wrong parts, and looked funny at us older people when we laughed at the right parts, and they didn't see the humour.  But this is June's page, so let's talk about her!  As for June:  she plays David St. Hubbins' girlfriend, who shows up in the middle of the U.S. tour and messes everything up by controlling David.  While you can name each band they're portraying as the movie goes along, it's obvious that June must have studied Yoko Ono and Linda Eastman to play this part.  She goes back and forth, melding them beautifully.  But towards the end, she (perhaps unknowingly) turns right into Britt Eklund!  (I don't know who was happier to see Britt leave:  us road crew...or Rod Stewart himself, who was getting really sick of her antics, too.)  This is definately one of the best parts I've seen June do, as her character study was so good.  Sure the 4 writers could write some lines and dig up some clothes...but only the right actress could actually make the part work, and June was perfect!  A lot of gold stars for both the movie and all the actors involved!!!

From the WebmasterDespite putting together a great cast, an uninspired script (haven't I seen this before?) derails this comedy. An interesting side note: costar Stephen Collins is married to Chadwick's "V" costar, Faye Grant. 
From TracyOf interest as well in the cast is the "man in restaurant" as he is billed ... ( the guy Whoopi thinks is Jack when she goes to meet him for dinner and is stood up) played by Antony Hamilton who starred with Jane Badler in Mission: Impossible several years later...

From Miss Josh Emmett:  When the mistress of Sandra's husband dies, she is just one of the suspects.  No one liked Rosemary except her sister (and she stood to inherit the huge trust fund if Rosemary died).  Sandra's husband admitted his affair and that he had married Sandra for her money, but had fallen in love with her and had broken it off with Rosemary (which was true), so she was happy, and off the hook.  The case was solved another murder later with everyone gathered in one room (see June/Magnum P.I.).  As for 
June:  a good part for her as she had to go through all the emotions:  jealously, anger, love, forgiveness, sorrow.  A medium, but meaty part and she played it very well.  I recommend this from late night movie channels.

TV Series - Guest Appearances

TV Show: "The A-Team"  (1985)
Character: Carla Singer
Episode Name: "Judgement Day Part 2" 
Stars: Dirk Benedict, George Peppard, Dwight Schultz
From Miss Josh Emmett:  Although June's name appears at the head of the cast list in Part I, she does not appear at all until Part II.  This episode was about a judge's daughter being kidnapped and taken out of the country.  They get B.A. there, but after rescuing the girl, he hits the plane with a jeep so they can't fly home.  Next best thing is a cruise ship, and Face bluffs their way on through cruise director Carla Singer, claiming to be part of  
the crew.  This episode is interesting for two reasons:  David Hemmings directs, and since he is also working on Airwolf, there is a shot of a helicopter over the ship, which you realize is stock footage of Airwolf, itself!  (You have to look quick!)  As for June:  this is really a cheat part.  With her name in both episodes, she is barely a cameo part.  A walk-on, if you will.  So it would be unfair to even judge her performance, as she is capable of handling so much more.  I would say that this is one of the lesser episodes, as Schultz doesn't get a free hand, so my recommendation is minimal. 
TV Show: "Magnum P.I." (1985)
Character: Lady Cynthia Warrington Stout
Episode Name: The Case of the Red-Faced Thespian
Stars: Tom Selleck, John Hillerman
From Miss Josh Emmett:  Magnum had just been up all night watching an Agatha Christie film festival, so naturally the story revolved around a party Robin was giving, in which everyone dressed in 20s clothes...someone was killed, everyone was a suspect, and Magnum got to have the "get everyone into a room and then one by one reveal the killer" in the best Christie manner.  As for June:  she came in 1/4 of the way through, was killed half way through, and then showed up at the end for a minute or two.  She did get to be seen in a bikini (this IS Magnum P.I.) and she did get to do the scene in which she is found dead sprawled across the bed on her back, with her head hanging over the side.  So, since she didn't really have to act, it's hard to give a review of her performance, but I bet she had a good time, just being on Magnum, and vacationing in Hawaii (where the show was filmed).  Nice work if you can get it!!
TV Show: "MacGyver" (1986)
Character: Dr. Jill Melissa Ludlum
Episode Name: "The Human Factor"
Stars: Richard Dean Anderson, Dana Elcar
From Miss Josh Emmett:  Mac has to break into a military foundation (STRADA) to prove that it is totally secure, so the Phoenix Foundation knows if they should fund it.  
(The 'security guards' look like leftover Daleks from Dr. Who.)  He gets in all right, but when the computor develops a mind of its own, he has to find a way out!  As for June:  this is not one of those  'oh dear, help me, I'm just a female' roles.  She gets to play a strong woman, who is over-confident of her computer, but is able to admit when she is wrong, and help Mac in getting out before they die.  This is not a cameo.  It is a role worthy of June's talents, comparable to her role in 'V'.  Also, she got to not only hug, but KISS MacGyver, and very few actresses got to do that over the years the show was on.  And, since Anderson had a lot of say in the production of the show, I think that he gave her a very 
high compliment on her work...a kind of on-air code:  job well done!
