Side note: If it looks like I have her near pools a lot, blame that, besides Georgina Spelvin and one other, one of the primary physical inspirations for Vladrushka was one Joan Severance, an exquisitely beautiful Texas model(also an actress, who you might recall in WISEGUY and RED SHOE DIARIES, among much else) who appeared in these photos here, among many others.
This, plus Georgina, plus Petra Verkaik, plus a leg tattoo on a woman I once knew, plus my strange fascination with the aesthetics of all things Soviet & Russian, plus the way a Serbian director I knew spoke English, created Vladrushka, pretty much. Joan Severance, 1990 c)1990 Playboy Enterprises
And an extra treat: Severance in the very first RED SHOE DIARIES, from 1993. It's not that good, but she is.
