The Coincidental Supergirls

Valeria Perrine, early-to-mid-70s


So well before the movie Superman was released, I had -- in my juvenile, boy-in-the-70s way -- fallen in love with Valerie Perrine and Margot Kidder.

They were, as the kids would now say, hot as balls.

But what I remember better about each is a sense of strength, identity, humour, and bravery.

Just a sense, so it says everything about me, and little about them.

They were attractive, and cool. . . .
