There are a few films in the 70’s that came close to crossing over from XXX-rated cinema to become acclaimed films in their own right..that was the case with this film:
The “golden age of adult film” has a few legitimate movies that strived to achieve more than just showcase sex, and “Sometime Sweet Susan” is one of those: it also has a “one and done” Adult Film Star who received acclaim in the film, then disappeared!
Shawn Harris made her adult film debut in this 1975 adult drama, the story of a vulnerable girl who is confined in a mental institution due to a radical personality disorder, which makes her alternate between being the demure good girl Susan and the tough and shameless Sandra.
The legendary Harry Reems also stars as the sympathetic psychiatrist, Mark, who tires to get Susan out of her fragile and frightened shell.
Adult Actress Jennifer Jordan also starred in this one, using the name Sarah Nicolson:
She had a nice run of films as well, and you can see them all by clicking on my story here:
So what happened? Why did she disappear?
She was gorgeous, the film was acclaimed, and then she literally dropped out of the spotlight….too bad, because she was stunning!
