In this week’s “Back in the Day,” we pick on, I mean, look at a good thriller that was Nicole Kidman’s breakthrough role as a damsel in distress – and wet clothes – aboard a yacht with a lunatic. Back in the 80’s, many a teenage boy scoured the HBO guide to see when this would be on because, well, let’s just say Internet porn hadn’t been invented yet.
Click on the picture above to read a few fun facts about why Dead Calm, adapted from a dime-store novel, was a pretty a decent movie, even if she hadn’t been naked.

yup. was enjoyable, mostly, yup.
that was back in the day when i was obsessed with all things Billy Zane:) loved him in Tombstone, though his part was smaller than small, “On St. Crispen’s Day!”
that was a good one! A really great thriller.
it was fun, that’s for sure. and some eye candy too.
Oh, she was gorgeous, a very young Nicole!
once had a gf who looked sooo much like her. that was fun 😉
She reminds me a bit of a young giraffe in Dead Calm,, all arms and legs!
and eyes. lovely eyes. very underrated. not just hers but eyes in general.
If you like eyes, you might like to visit Monsieur Modigliani’s blog…seems he has devoted a post to eyes. 😉
I must have been the only one, I thought it was a rather stupid movie.
not the only one, but in the minority. i think.
