Tara Fellner dumps Mountain King


Tara Fellner King of the Mountain Tara Fellner King of the Mountain Iris

Actress: Tara Fellner Project: KING OF THE MOUNTAIN Year: 1981 Genre: Racing Action Drama Character: Iris Traits: Impatient girlfriend of Harry Hamlin’s risky car racer, Steve, who’s no pro: he and his buddies illegally zip up, down and throughout the snaky, lethal curves of Mulholland Drive in Los Angeles, well after midnight, and Iris wants out of a nowhere relationship that entails sitting around on her man’s bed, smoking, irritated. NAG RATING: 7… Since she breaks up with him on the spot, but for a good reason: At a record studio party the night before, Steve fell for brunette singer Tina played by THE WARRIORS siren Deborah Van Valkenburgh. BEST PART: Seeing a cute blond-haired babe smoking a cigarette in bed, and alone. Very inviting. Sexy. Cool. Steve’s a nutjob for choosing anyone else. YOU MISSED: Alas, this super-cute blonde bombshell… as cute as she’s gorgeous… only appeared in one other movie, a Ryan O’Neal Neo Noir titled GREEN ICE, as Anne Archer’s doomed hippie sister who buys the farm early-on: although importantly igniting the plot. ICE hit theaters after this movie but was made two years earlier. So Tina was done before she even began.
