Ann-Margret
Actress, Carnal Knowledge (1971)
It is Ann-Margret, as Bobbie, who is being hailed as the acting find of the movie. True, there are those pitiful exposures of a famous body going to seed. We see the pushed-up beasts. We get low-angle shots turning the naked buttocks into medicine balls. And we see the slightly sagging face, in relentless close-up, looking worried while trying to seduce. But something is lacking: a performance. Ann-Magret provides little more than the bulbous shell; missing are the quivering insides.

Actress, The Last Remake of Beau Geste (1977)
Ann-Margret adds to her other no-talents a no-talent for farce.
