If music really is the food of love then Tuesday Knight is dining happy. The A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master star has released numerous recordings over the years, including her popular ANOES 4 theme song. Of course, rhythm lives in her blood. Knight’s father, Baker, was a talented songwriter whose material was covered by everyone from Paul McCartney to Frank Sinatra.
Showing familial pride, Knight covered Lonesome Town, one of her father’s most recognized tunes on The Starlet, a third season episode of the popular detective series Matlock. This fun episode, featuring such stalwarts as Roddy McDowall and Anne Francis, revolves around the murder of a conniving contestant at a beauty contest.
As the perky Abby Smith, a hopeful participant, Knight radiates with sweetness in the background of several ensemble set-ups. That her cohorts here include DeepStar Six’s Nia Peeples (Fame), Rebecca Staab (the Invisible Girl in the Roger Corman produced Fantastic Four) and (long term The Young and the Restless cast member)Tonya Williams only sweetens the pot.
Nicely, she is finally given primary focus as she, lovingly, performs her father’s lyrics. It’s a brief yet potent appearance and a boon to devoted Freddy Krueger lovers everywhere.
Until the next time, SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!
