Interesting documentary of the career and life of gorgeous actress Susan Oliver.

The title is taken from her appearence of Star Trek as the green alien who does a very seductive dance in the two part episode entitled "The Cage".

This in depth look at her career caught me a little by suprise as I have always loved her work, but never thought anyone would do a documentary on it. Susan was born in 1932 and passed away in 1990 from cancer.

Her body of work included both TV and movies, but it was TV that she made her mark. Some of the various shows she was in include "Seaway", Gomer Pyle USMC", "Peyton Place", "The Invaders", "Mannix", "Man From U.N.C.L.E." and "Night Gallery" just to name a few.

Her film credits included "Hardly Working", "The Monitors" and "Change Of Mind".

Susan never played by the rules and she really wanted to direct movies, but was never allowed the chance, which is our loss. If you get a chance to see this well made documentary, I suggest you check it out. It's unusual, but damn is it good.
