Susan Backlinie made quite an impression skinny dipping at the beginning of Steven Spielberg's smash-hit Jaws (1975) and offering up quite the tasty morsel for Bruce the Shark. Who could resist that meal? That was Susan's debut and typecast her as a grisly treat for ravenous beasts. She was the first victim in the Jaws-on-land rip-off Grizzly (1976) and followed that with a role in the revolting creature thriller Day of the Animals (1977). Susan was good at opening films but leaving them far too soon, as she tended to be killed off in the opening moments. Things changed when Spielberg cast her in his comedy 1941 (1979) to parody the role that made her famous. Again, she appears nude whilst dipping in the skinny, but this time, instead of being eaten by a shark or a bear, she encounters a Japanese submarine that nearly impregnates her with its hard periscope. After that role, Susan appeared in bit parts here and there and then retired to Ventura, California, where she is a computer accountant. She should come back and open some new blockbuster wearing those skintastic swimsuits for which we remember her so fondle-ly.
