Karen Black

Oct 18—Oct 24, 2013

"A defining presence in the New American Cinema Movement." —Dave Kehr

Once described by The New York Times as “something of a freak, a beautiful freak,” actress Karen Black, who passed away in August, was adept at offbeat portrayals of eccentric, often tumultuous characters. Her most unforgettable performances—in films like Easy Rider, Five Easy Pieces, and Nashville—embodied the adventurous, defiantly nonconformist spirit of 1970s New Hollywood. All films starring Karen Black.
