Susan Anspach - Rotten Tomatoes

Susan Anspach



Offbeat leading lady Susan Anspach worked in off-Broadway productions before making her first film, The Landlord, in 1970. Nominal stardom came her way with prime roles in Five Easy Pieces (1971), Play It Again, Sam (1972), and especially Blume in Love (1973). The type of fey, semi-neurotic roles that made Anspach famous went out of vogue as the 1970s became the 1980s, and her career suffered accordingly. She continued to appear in smaller-scale films like Blue Monkey (1987) and Killer Instinct (1990), and was a regular on three TV series: The Yellow Rose (1983), Space (1985), and The Slap Maxwell Story (1987). In 1995, Susan Anspach found herself in the tabloids and columns when she sued her former lover Jack Nicholson over a long-standing monetary arrangement.
