Well, Valerie Perrine wasn't bad to look at. 

If you want to see more of her body, watch the awful Lenny with Dustin Hoffman in the title role with Perrine as the long suffering Honey Bruce. Directed in black and white by Bob Fosse it does have a great Lesbian scene, so there's that. Her career sputtered after Arthur Hiller's awful bio-pic about W.C. Fields, W.C. Fields and Me in which she plays Fields' long suffering mistress Carlotta Monti. She was primed for great things but after but these two movies, especially the one about Fields, led to the non-lead in the awful Superman films and then not much. For those of a certain age she will always be remembered for the nude shower in the PBS TV movie of the existential play Steambath. Written by Bruce Jay Friedman (who died this year at 90) it's noted as the first American TV production to have nudity and a female's nipples. I kid you not. With Bill Bixby and Kenneth Mars.
