Her original goal to be an actress landed her background work in Roman Polanski’s classic Rosemary’s Baby and the Tony Curtis thriller The Boston Strangler. But Linda Clifford really hit her mark as the singer who introduced such popular dance singles as Red Light and If My Friends Could See Me Now.

Short and sassy – that’s how I like my gym teachers and my horror shorts.

Filled with nice pacing and set-ups (courtesy of director Glenn R. Buettner) and some extraordinarily vibrant photography (courtesy of Dave Garacci), this piece also contains confident performances from all involved (especially in Buettner’s low-key, totally charming Irish accented Devil) making it a truly engaging way to spend 9 (or so) minutes.
