Terri Hall (1953-1995) was an actress of the Golden Age of Erotic Films. She had been trained as a dancer and performed with the Harkness Ballet, the Stuttgart Ballet and the American Ballet Theater. Interested in acting, she was cast in The Taking of Christina, her first adult movie. She made about 50 erotic films from 1976 to 1985, in lead or supporting roles. These included Farewell, Scarlet; The Story of Joanna; Suzi’s Take-out Service; Alice in Wonderland; Ecstasy in Blue; Oriental Blue; Odyssey; The Opening of Misty Beethoven; et.al. A talented and professional actress, with a powerful presence, she became a star. Unfortunately, she is less remembered than others from that period.
I have always thought that Terri Hall was the foremost actress during the Golden Age. She combined a sensual face, wispy voice and lithe body for a sizzling sexuality. Also known as National Velvet, she closely resembled Elizabeth Taylor. The first time I saw her was in The Story of Joanna. An unforgettable performer.
