August's Space Babe: Jenny Agutter

The elfin Jenny Agutter as Jessica Six in the 1976 feature film, Logan's Run. It's a couple days early, but September's Space Babe is one of my all time favorites. Beautiful and sexy with a charming innocence, Agutter's layered portrayal of Jessica Six is forever seared into my adolescent brain. Doesn't hurt that she had a couple of tantalizing nude scenes... and that dress!

Born on December 20, 1952, in Taunton, Somerset, England, UK, Agutter was the daughter of an army officer and spent her childhood traveling and living in different countries. Her film career began at the age of 12!

Agutter is an accomplished and prolific English actress with substantial television, film and stage credits. Her genre credits are slim, aside from her iconic role in Logan's Run, but she did appear in episodes of The Six Million Dollar Man, and is well-known for her co-starring role in 1981's An America Werewolf In London.

  2. I loved the movie, and I loved that dress with the open sides. As an 18 year old when I saw it, it made me crazy!

  4. I love both Logan's Run (one of my favorite movies ever) and the lovely Jenny Agutter, a Space Babe who is as talented as she is beautiful.
    Logan's Run anecdote: There was in the original cut of the film much more nudity by Jenny in a scene where BOX (the silver robot) makes an ice sculpture of Logan and Jessica 6, but alas, this scene was cut because of time constraints and never to be seen again. Damn!

  7. Logan's run is where I developed(and maintain to this day)a major boyish crush on Jenny!

  8. Agreed and Agreed. Her bearskin scene with Logan and BOX is legendary, catapulting the hormonal growth of any '70s teenage geek by a dozen years.

    Just a GORGEOUS, lovely face as well. Still one of my favorite films ever.
