Not the porn star, the "original" Tina Louise. Some of you in your 40s will only remember her from Gilligan's Island but those of us that go back a long way wil remember when, in the late 1950s, it seemed as though there wasn't month when her picture wasn't featured on the cover of SOME magazine. Her pictures were literally everywhere, super-famous (athough only at a "B" sarlet level) when she got on the TV show, and in that sense Gilligan's Island type-casting really did ruin her career.
But that's not our problem.
Since there are topics dedicated to every imaginable B-movie or TV wank-off fodder from Loni Anderson to Dawn Wells to Sue Ane Langdon to Annette Funicello to Linda Carter, it seems amazing no one has yet started a thread for Tina Louise, who was surely the inspiration for more late-adolescent tug-pulls in the 50s and 60s than all the other above-named starlets put together.


The role that first made her famous: Appassionata Von Climax in Broadway's "Li'l Abner". She debuted along with Julie Newmar. Unfortunately for us all, when they made the movie, Tina refused to be in it because they had cut out her solo song during the Broadway run and decided they wouldn't re-insert it in the movie. Stella Stevens got the part instead, so there was still eye candy, and while Tina Louise was a good singer, Stevens wasn't, so she wouldn't have argued that the song be restored. But Tina Louise could do things with a push-up bra that few women could, so it's a real shame we haven't got a technicolor movie of her in her Appassionata costume...
We can sigh over the stills, though...

She was a beauty but her attitude was always a big turnoff for me. It seems every documentary or interview I see about her it's all about her whining about not being the big star on Gilligan's Island or anywhere else really. I think there's a difference between people that are truly big stars and people that deliberately try to become big stars. She seemed a real snooty jerkoff to me though again she was really hot, no denying that. But I'll take the pornstar Tina Louise over the movie star one without hesitation.

I understand where you're coming from, but I wouldn't be too hard on her, she really got the shaft several times in her career. In the original broadway production of L'il Abner she had a solo song that was a scene-stealer (my uncle saw the first run, said she was the most memorable part of the whole show), and the star (Edie Adams) got so mad at being upstaged she convinced the producer (of whom she was the mistress) to cut it out. Tina was a very good singer (check out her "Time for Tina" CD) and when they decided to do a film version of L'il Abner (without Edie Adams) she asked to put the song back in. They didn't so she walked away from it. Was a very good actress (see God's Little Acre) but she made a dumb move when she accepted Gilligan's Island -- absolutely B-grade stuff and it typecast her forever. She never got another decent break. It's like Boris Karloff, who was an excellent Shakespearian actor but once he did Frankenstein, that was the end of it: it was ghoulish parts from then on. True, he didn't whine about it and Tina did, but on the other hand, "walk a mile in her shoes": by 1960 her career could have been fabulous, and she might have done a host of great parts, but the type-casting system of those days just chewed her up. So let's give her a little slack.

The real pity is that she wasn't born 20 years later: maybe if her career had dead-ended, she might have done porn, like Karin Shubert or Lilli Carati! Wouldn't THAT have been grand!
Cheers

I see what you're saying. This kind of wayward career further convinces me that if a chick really wants to "make it" to whatever degree that will make them happy, fuck your way up the ladder in the largest crime organization that has a slice of the Hollywood scene. I bet Al Capone could have go that song back into the mix - though before her time maybe, but I think you see my point.

But there is something to be respected per one not whoring themself out like that. Either way, I'm sure she has her reasons for her BS and moreover I have had countless fantasies & threeesomes with Ginger and Mary Ann. So overall I have some kind memories of her.
