Paula Prentiss

“I used to think I looked like an ostrich but I’m not the type to bury my head in the sand. I’m a more frantic bird-type – like the Road Runner in the cartoon! That’s what I feel like and look like most. You know: ‘Beep – Beep’ and…zoom!”Paula Prentiss

Paula Prentiss - What's New Pussycat (Bizarre Los Angeles)“One day during shooting, I just climbed up the ropes to the catwalk and started walking the beams. Very loudly and clearly I called down to everyone on the set, ‘I’m going to jump.’ A French technician grabbed me, and there I was, hanging by one arm.”Paula Prentiss
