Picture Trivia
          The real name of American actress, model and sex symbol Bo Derek is Mary Cathleen Collins. She rose to stardom after portraying the role of Jenny Hanley in the film 10 (1979) directed by Blake Edwards. This was followed by A Change of season (1980) and Tarzan the Ape Man (1981). Bo Derek’s first leading role for which she used the name Kathleen Collins was in the R-rated Fantasies (made in 1973) under the direction of her would-be husband John Derek. She was only 17-year-old. There was difficulty in marketing the film, so it was only in 1981 when it was released in theaters. On the other hand, Bo Derek was first seen in the film Orca (1977).
