Pia Zadora can't get no respect

Pia ZadoraStephen Beachy references the oft-repeated urban legend about Pia Zadora's turn in the lead in the stage production of The Diary of Anne Frank. (To my knowledge, Zadora never played Anne Frank.) Though Beachy does call it an urban legend and only brings it up to give some context to Nic Cage's performance in World Trade Center, it's both funny and sad to think that Zadora's lasting legacy will be her short (compared to her musical career, which was lengthy and successful) stint as a bad actress. Plus, I wonder how many people these days even get the reference.
