Checking Out “Alice Goodbody”! Cult Queen Sharon Kelly Was “Sassy Sue” And Adult Star Colleen Brennan Too!

Meet 70’s Cult Actress Sharon Kelly!

I watched a cult film recently and noticed a vibrant, feisty Actress in a lead role – so I had to find out more about Sharon Kelly!

Here’s how I found Sharon described on a film website:

“With her fiery scarlet hair, pretty round freckled face, awesomely ample, buxom and shapely figure, and infectiously bubbly good-natured personality, popular 1970s soft-core starlet Sharon Kelly was as endearing as she was alluring, a potent double whammy that, in turn, made the always exuberant Irish redhead absolutely irresistible.”

Let take a look at her career! Note that there are a couple of semi-nude photos as many of her roles called for that.

Kelly made her movie debut in the raunchy comedy “The Dirty Mind of Young Sally” in 1973.

As you can see from that poster, they are playing off of the pop culture phenomenon “Deep Throat” from that year, even though this isn’t an XXX-rated film!

Next up was 1973’s “hicksploitation” classic “Sassy Sue” – where Sharon played Dolly, who spent the entire movie fighting guys off or, as you can see in this publicity photo, helping them paint butts…

Kelly wasn’t shy in any of these films: she was fully nude in many of them, but she was much more than just a sex kitten: she could act, as she showed in her next film: a well-received parody of Hollywood!

Kelly has the starring role “Alice Goodbody” which was released in 1974. This ribald comedy has a simple plot: movie-nut hamburger waitress Alice Goodbody will do anything to achieve stardom!

It’s a bumpy-road for Alice, however, because of a series of comic mishaps on the set. The film is a ribald romp that Roger Corman called:

“Hilarious! The funniest, truest take on Hollywood — EVER!”

Here’s the pratfall and prop-filled trailer for “Alice Goodbody” AKA “Gosh!”:

Clearly, Sharon was magnetic onscreen, and was more than willing to show herself off.

Sharon also starred with legendary star Dyanne Thorne in two notorious “Ilsa” features, including “Ilsa, Harem Keeper Of The Oil Sheiks!”

Another of Kelly’s popular roles was “SuperCherry” in Russ Meyer’s outrageous “Supervixens” from 1975.

As you can see, she starred in films of all levels of quality, but always had an endearing screen presence…

According to reports, in the early 80’s Kelly began acting in hardcore X-rated films under the pseudonym Colleen Brennan.

According to information I found online, she quit acting in the late 1980s because of the AIDS scare and went on to create her own home recording studio for phone sex hot lines!

I didn’t know much about Kelly, but found several of these cult movies to be worth the effort, and she had a great personality onscreen.

Bravo to Sharon for a great career in cult films!

As I said, she starred in a Russ Meyer film – you know him: a Director with a special penchant for a certain type of Actress:

  1. I only know her from ‘Supervixens’. She had some wonderful ‘assets’, and that meant that acting was not a necessary skill! 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I worked in a mom and pop video store back in the late 80s to mid nineties. I remember titles that had her name in them would come out and we kept them on the top shelf in the adult/comedy area. I would always watch those titles for the over the top adult humour …oh yeah and the giant tits were always a plus.
