Q: What do You Get When You Cross Science Fiction with David Hasselhoff?
A: You get the 1979 train wreck that is Star Crash!
I cannot believe this is the first time I’m finding this out. I’ve struggled for years (years!) over ways to integrate mentions of David Hasselhoff into my science fiction blogging. (Tim and JP can attest to this.) Then, as if in answer to my prayers, along comes a post from Look at This that shows me the way.
What makes this even better is that the movie – and I use that term loosely – stars Marjoe Gortner. For the reason why this is the icing on this particular cake, see my previous moment of surrealism with crazy-eyed Marjoe Gortner.
Here’s a video clip from the movie. Sure, the Hoff has a long way to go before he exhibits the consummate acting skills he portrayed in “Jump In My Car“, but I think you’ll agree that the seeds are there even then.
