  • The daughter of a New York City policeman, Nancy Allen trained for a dancing career at the High School of Performing Arts, then attended Jose Quintano's School for Young Professionals. In dozens of TV commercials from the age of 15, Nancy made her first film appearance (as "Nancy"-what a stretch!) in 1973's The Last Detail. Three years later, she set the standard for all future "bitch-goddess teenagers" as the beautiful but despicable high schooler Chris in Brian De Palma's Carrie. While Chris and her greaser boyfriend (John Travolta) met with a violent but well-deserved end on-screen, Nancy herself ultimately won out by claiming director De Palma as her husband. She next displayed a keen comic sense in the role of the only teenager on Earth who doesn't love the Beatles in Robert Zemeckis' I Want to Hold Your Hand (1976); thereafter, for the next seven years she appeared only in DePalma's films. She carried on a heated argument with her own hand in Home Movies (1979), was threatened by a knife-wielding psycho in Dressed to Kill (1980), and literally died for John Travolta's art in Blow-Out (1981). After her divorce from DePalma in 1984, Nancy's film opportunities narrowed, though she was memorable as take-no-guff police officer Anne Lewis in the three Robocop flicks. In 1993, Nancy Allen joined several other veteran stars in Acting on Impulse, a made-for-cable send-up of the horror films that first brought her fame.

QUOTES FROM Nancy Allen CHARACTERS

Detective Marino
Well look Miss.. Miss Blake, you're gonna save me a lot of trouble by finding this, this Ted from out of town and getting him in town and downtown and in here to sign this statement as to exactly what he saw and when he saw it.
Liz Blake
How the hell am I supposed to know where he is?
Detective Marino
Well if you can't find him I sure can't. And anyway, you got a lot better motivation than I do: your ass.
Detective Marino
So what were you doing there? [at the hotel]

Ted, I didn't get his last name. He's from out of town.

You do? Just because I happen to have personal and professional ethics?
Liz Blake
Look, Doc, I think you're kind of shy. So, uh.... I'm gonna go powder my nose... and when I come back, I hope to find your clothes right next to mine. And if not, we can just get back to the mind fuck.

Norma Watson
(in disbelief) - What? God!
Norma Watson
(in disbelief) What? God!
Miss Collins
That would get you where you live, wouldn't it? And you deserve it. I don't think any of you have any idea of just how nasty what you did really was. But the office has decided you're to have one week's detention...Still, there's one little catch. It's to be my detention...That's fifty minutes every day starting today in the athletic field. Get the picture?

Chris Hargenson
I'm not coming.
Miss Collins
That's up to you, Chris. That's up to all of you. Punishment for skipping detention is three days' suspension and refusal of your prom tickets. Any other thoughts? Good. Now change up.
Miss Collins
The period's not up, Hargenson.
Chris Hargenson
It is for me.

Sue Snell
Shut up, Chris. Just shut up.

Miss Collins
You're out of the prom, Hargenson. Okay, the show's over.
Billy Nolan
That Carrie White, she sure is cute.
Chris Hargenson
Shut up.
Billy Nolan
I thought you said they were gonna win.
Chris Hargenson
They will. It won't even be close. I called in a few favors.
Chris Hargenson
She can't get away with this. I'm gonna get her.
Sue Snell
Let it go, Chris.
Chris Hargenson
Like Hell, I will!
Chris Hargenson
I want you to do something.
Billy Nolan
