57. Lana Clarkson
Best known for BARBARIAN QUEEN and its sequel, she also appeared in FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH, DEATHSTALKER, AMAZON WOMEN ON THE MOON, THE HAUNTING OPF MORELLA and VICE GIRLS.

Based on everything I read (and common sense), the two holdouts are idiots.
Personally, I think that crap like this happens too often. The judge should have held the jury. "You're not being dismissed until you have reached a verdict. I don't care if it takes years."
And it has.
They'll eventually get him. Should have happened during this trial however. Phil Spector is a nutbar and has always been.
