Streaked blonde Melinda Dillon has a host of attractive qualities. Her sleepy green eyes are comforting soulful windows, and they know passion is the better part of compassion. Her wistful smile is kind, patient, slightly sly, covertly sexy. Her eyebrows and lashes of blonde corn silk are invitations to cozy bedtime nuzzles and butterfly kisses. Melinda would make a great mom to some lucky dad, which is probably why she's been given the maternal role in such family-based hits as Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977), A Christmas Story (1983), and Harry and the Hendersons (1987). Of course, one essential for mothers is the mammary rack, and Melinda's is top shelf. In fact, as exquisitely displayed by the evocative lighting of a bedroom scene with Paul Newman in Slap Shot (1977), Dillon's gentle slope of chest and thick, protruding nipples throw a shadow across all the rest of her attractive qualities.
