We've known the name of our favorite Horizons actor for many months now after receiving a tip from one of our MVT friends. I went hunting, found her, talked to her on the phone, found out some amazing facts.....etc.
Remember that scene in Jurassic Park where Malcolm is asking the guy "You were so into whether or not you COULD do it that you forgot to ask yourselves if you SHOULD do it" or something like that. I feel that way right now. Not to say that I found something horrible. Don't get me wrong. She was very nice to me on the phone but wanted nothing to do with her 80's film career. I get that so I thanked her for her time and let it be.
But......WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I talked to THE redhead on the phone! Same voice! Ran chills right up my god damned spine!!!!!!!!!!

I was a little sad about the phone call. Why wouldn't she want to celebrate the fact that SHE was the Icon of future cute girls in an attraction that millions of people enjoyed? Right? oh well.
Her name is Corinne Cook. She was an actress in California and appeared in a few movies, two before and two after her role in Horizons.
- B.O.R.N. (1988) (as Corine Cook) .... Jody
... aka "Merchants of Death" - USA (DVD title)
- Getting Straight (1986) .... Ronnie
- Malibu Hot Summer (1981) .... At the singing contest
... aka "Sizzle Beach, U.S.A." - USA (reissue title)
- Don't Answer the Phone! (1980) .... Rikki
I guess some people wouldn't be very proud of these films. Personally I'm proud of any crazy shit I've been a part of and would celebrate any of it at the drop of a hat. Some people are different than Hoot Gibson. I've located all of these films on DVD and VCR. Classics! Malibu Hot Summer even features Kevin Costner!
I'm sure that some Disney fan group will contact her and put together a fitting tribute ($29.99 on DVD) in the future. Chief and I, well we don't have the time or patients for people who won't talk to us. There are a lot of people who don't want to talk to us.
This one's for you, boys but mostly for Eric_w:)
I LOVE PINK SILK!
A few minutes on the phone with Hoot Gibson. Is that such a bad thing?
