Halloween TV: Before she was Old, she was a nymph

Julia Louis-DreyfusThat's Julia Louis-Dreyfus on the right, in her groundbreaking performance as a woman turned into a nymph in the classic 1986 horror flick Troll. It was her first big screen appearance after her short stint on Saturday Night Live. Luckily, she went on to a role in Woody Allen's Hannah and Her Sisters the very same year, then on some show about nothing. And now, of course, she's on the hit CBS comedy The New Adventures of Old Christine.

If you've never seen Troll, it's, um, interesting to say the least. Maybe good for a goofy Halloween DVD to rent. It stars Michael Moriarty, Sonny Bono, Shelley Hack, June Lockhart and Noah Hathaway as the hero of the flick, Harry Potter.

Yup, Harry Potter.

I saw her on Letterman and she was delightful, and if there's one thing Ron Burgundy knows, it's women. I know that one day Julia and I are going to get married on top of a mountain, and there's going to be flutes playing and trombones and flowers and garlands of fresh herbs. And we will dance till the sun rises. And then our children will form a family band. And we will tour the countryside and you won't be invited.

It's only Christine that's old. The adventures are new.

I loved Troll when I first saw it back in 1986. Ahh the good old days.
