Today’s spotlight features a magnificent early performance in the 1974 “Thriller” episode “A Coffin for the Bride”.

Helen wonderfully plays a double role as a young artist and an obnoxious loud old broad. To learn more about the project, visit the career page. Stills and screencaptures have been added to the gallery. And four clips have been added to the video archive.
