Marie Claude Bourbonnais
It was 1985. I was 10 years old. And girls were just barely starting to edge their way in to challenge the Transformers as my primary pre-adolescent fascination. That changed when I saw Rocky IV.
In Rocky IV Apollo Creed is killed in a match against a powerful Soviet boxer, Ivan Drago. It was Ivan’s wife, Ludmilla Vobet Drago, who thrust my tween consciousness into the world of youthful masturbatory frenzy. Her short-cropped bleach blond hair, Amazonian stature and more than ample bosom were enough to make me put the toys away for good.
Marie Claude Bourbonnais is not Ludmilla Drago, but she could have been.
Call it blashphemy but I’m quite certain she would have even been better than Brigitte Nielsen.
In anycase… I need to take a bath mommy.
