Melinda


1972       Rosalind Cash

Melinda a fast-paced action drama from MetroGoldwyn Mayer, features Calvin Lockhart as the smooth talking disc jockey turned detective who, in trying to solve the murder of his girlfriend, nearly becomes a victim himself. Rosalind Cash stars as Lockhart's former woman who becomes his chief ally and support.

Vonetta McGee, Paul Stevens, Rockne Tarkington and Ross Hagen co-star under the direction of Hugh A. Robertson. Robertson, Academy Award nominee for his editing of "Midnight Cowboy," makes his directorial debut with this film.

Written by award-winning playwright Lonne Elder, Ill, the film is produced by Pervis Atkins, former Rams football star.

To disrobe or not to disrobe is often the question put to actresses in today's Hollywood. But if the new Hollywood is enjoying its free reign with more sexually explicit films, it must also contend with a new breed of actress. These young women have ideas of their own as to what is and what is not required to advance their careers. They do not automatically accept the fact that "nude"

is the only way to go.

Rosalind Cash, currently starring with Calvin Lockhart and Vonetta McGee in MGM's Melinda is just such an independent young woman.

"I've turned down roles because of the nudity involved, not so much because of the nudity itself, but because the roles were merely that of sex object and nothing more," says Rosalind.

"I'm not knocking nudity in films, or anyone who chooses to do it, I personally just don't think it's necessary. I've had roles where I've been nude, but I don't necessarily reveal all to the audience.

"I've talked with young actresses who think exploiting sex is one way to get ahead. I don't have any delusions about being a great star and doing just anything to 'make it.'

"Personally," Ms. Cash continues, "I still don't think it's necessary. My idea of sexuality has nothing to do with showing a lot of flesh. It's not about that with me. I would much rather express my sensuality with my inner self - with my soul.

"For example, I've been approached several times by Playboy to do a nude layout. I think Playboy is a good magazine and they treat nudity with great taste but I don't want to pursue that aspect of my career.

"What I want to get across is my acting ability and you can't do that in Playboy. In films, if it can be shown why my character is nude in a scene and can relate to the director's reasoning-OK. But you'll never find me tossing and turning in somebody's bed," says Miss Cash.

"Besides a really good actress can convey more sexiness with a look than a just average starlet type can with a whole film of nude scenes. I've worked long and hard to be a good actress. I want to concentrate on selling my talent - not my physic."
