When most kinksters think of Dana Delany, the usually think of her role as the head mistress in 1994's very disappointing Exit to Eden - (FWIW - I personally think expectations for a mainstream FemDom movie were just too high.) But my first thought of her was her role as a villainess in 1985, on Moonlighting.
Her character shows up as Bruce Willis' one true heart breaker ex, and she twists him around her finger and uses him to cover up her murder of her husband. Not only is she just ole fashioned gorgeous, (Oh how I just love that hair style) and have a lovely lithe figure (and some awesome pins!) but as my regular readers might suspect, she smokes. Her style is casual and confident. And as a budding teenage fetishist, her introductory scene on that episode was forever burned into my memory.
It's a simple, focused and probably not "all that" for most smoking fans. There is no exciting french inhale, or anything super tricky. In fact her exhale is barely visible in the low light. But it was just so "there" in the scene for me. Bruce mentions "I thought you quit" - and she says "Oh, yeah..." and then takes another drag. It's not some huge part of the plot. The cigarette doesn't become some part of the evidence, there's no lecturing, nothing gets burned down. It's pretty simple, she chooses to smoke, you just have to deal with it. And that's just hot. And something that you just don't ever see anymore.Yup, Dana Delany - a beautiful dominant character actress? Perhaps she's not acting... well, a guy can dream, can't he? Oh and for the real smoking fetish crowd, you will probably rather watch for the smoking performances of her (and chain smoking Marg Helgenberger) on the China Beach series. Either way - the "Knowing Her" episode was on disc 4 of the season 1/2 Moonlighting sets ;)
