Audiences were shocked and awed by Kathleen Tolan’s performance in the Charles Bronson action film Death Wish (1974). At a time when sexual violence wasn’t often portrayed on screen--much less as graphically as it was in said vigilante classic--Tolan took big chances with the role, which required her to expose herself both literally and figuratively. The wavy-haired brunette dropped out of sight afterwards, re-emerging for a one-season stint on the hit soap series Ryan’s Hope (1975). From there she headed to the big screen with a starring role in The Line (1980), which she followed up with a mysterious seven-year acting sabbatical. She returned to film with a painfully flesh-free role as a nun in The Rosary Murders (1987) and has managed to stay out of the picture and under wraps ever since. How we pray for her return!
