Darlanne Fluegel (Nanelia) has often played the girlfriend/best friend of the hero - not only in BBTS, but in such films as Sergio Leone's 'Once Upon a Time in America' and William Friedkin's 'To Live and Die in L.A.' and has starred alongside such actors as Robert DeNiro, James Woods, Billy Crystal, Sylvetser Stallone, Gary Busey, Tommy Lee Jones and Faye Dunaway.

the heroine

George Peppard (Space Cowboy) has played wise-cracking tough guys in films like 'Pork Chop Hill', 'How the West Was Won', 'Damnation Alley' and all but made the character of Space Cowboy his own.
