For a good stretch in the mid-to-late '70s and early '80s, cult favorite P.J. Soles seemed to have a monopoly on roles calling for a sexy, funny, energetic young woman with attitude. In a remarkable five-year span, Soles appeared in a slew of iconic hits: Carrie and The Boy In The Plastic Bubble (both 1976), Halloween (1978), Breaking Away (1979), Private Benjamin (1980), and Stripes (1981). But Soles is best known for playing the world's most enthusiastic Ramones fan in the raucous 1979 comedy Rock 'N' Roll High School by Roger Corman. Since then, Soles has continued to pop up in projects like Shake, Rattle And Rock! (a 1994 TV movie that reunited her with Rock 'N' Roll High School director Allan Arkush and co-star Dey Young), Jawbreaker (1999), and The Devil's Rejects (2005), a shocker by noted Soles super-fan Rob Zombie.
