Season Hubley in Hardcore

In 1979, Season Hubley was featured in the movie Hardcore, the role that should have catapulted her to mainstream stardom. The film, written and directed by Paul Schrader and starring the legendary George C. Scott, had all the right elements to become a classic and over the years has become cult favorite. However, some time after the release of Hardcore, Season Hubley decided to get married and have a child, putting her career on hold fore several years.

In Hardcore, Season Hubley plays a young, streetwise prostitute named Niki (she also stars in adult films and works a booth a seedy locale). She is persuaded to help George C. Scott look for his missing daughter who has disappeared into depths of the California sex underworld. Yes, Season Hubley does appear nude in the film during two different scenes (in case you were wondering). It is also worth noting that there was some chatter at the time about her getting a best supporting actress Oscar nomination (unfortunately that didn't happen).

Anyways, Hardcore offered Season Hubley on of her most iconic screen roles and, due to the major studio backing and the big names involved, perhaps one of her most seen roles overall. She looks great throughout the film, gets to wear some funky fashions and gets to act opposite George C. Scott. What more could you ask for?
