The 1960s was a revolutionary decade led by brave, freaky-deaky hippie chicks who waved their lung flesh, their bushes, and their peace-loving buttocks from drive-in screens nationwide. Brunette with a boldly sexual face and fiercely dedicated to liberating her breasts and ass from bra and panties, Karen Black started out at the top of the countercultural muff heap. She first stroked the Zeitgeist as a spacy party chick in the seminal Easy Rider (1969). Karen played one of Jack Nicholson's simpler pieces in Five Easy Pieces (1970), a film in which Black seemed to be always crouched atop a bathroom sink while in various negligees. Karen's unadulterated nips started popping out in Drive, He Said (1972) and Cisco Pike (1972). By the time Killing Heat (1981) rolled around, the life-long bohemian had advanced to standing with her bush pushed forward while she poured water over her head. The '60s may be gone, but the revolution lingers on.
