Corinne Alphen Is A Filthy Gorgeous Muse
The late, great Roger Ebert was a critic of unstinting honesty, but also had enough of an open heart and mind that even when watching a movie that bored or irritated him, he remained open to any aspect of it that could provide redeeming value. And so, in the middle of a thoroughly earned pan for the extremely mediocre 1983 teen sex exploitation movie Spring Break, he writes about something in the picture he noticed, and liked: “a young woman named Corinne Alphen, who is described as Penthouse’s 1982 Pet of the Year. Sad to say, most of the Pets and Playmates who win movie roles turn out to be sort of self-conscious and untalented as actresses.
Not Corinne Alphen. She has a dazzling smile, a great personality and a relaxed naturalness on the screen that makes the horny teenage boys seem all the more gauche. A funny little movie might have been made about her adventures in Fort Lauderdale, ‘where the boys are.’ She would have had the personality to carry it.” In the end, Ebert dismissed Spring Break as “a letdown for horny movie critics.” Despite the movie being a flop, Alphen was always sexually adventurous, just like her character in the movie. “I craved attention from the opposite sex from a very early age, ” Corinne said once. “I went to an exclusive girls’ school when I was young, and I still have a fantasy of making love with a teenage boy in a car at a drive-in. I guess that’s because it’s something I never got to do.”
“I was so innocent when I was seventeen, and I was open to every new experience. It was such a marvelously free feeling, being on my own, going wherever I wanted, doing whatever I liked.” Reminisces Corinne, “Some people think that’s the kind of thing you can do only when you’re really young. But I disagree. I’m going to have a lot more adventures like that in my life. I’d like to make that same trip again sometime on my motorcycle.”
