Most people know Perry King from the tv series Riptide or as the President in The Day After Tomorrow or maybe even remember him in The Lords of Flatbush (with Stallone and The Fonz) but I'll always remember him from the movie, A Different Story.
A Different Story was about a homosexual woman who marries a gay male friend to prevent his deportation, but they soon fall in love. The first half of the movie grabbed my attention because of the ever so handsome and sexy Perry King and held it because he was gay!
I clearly remember holding my breath as his character's "wife" (Meg Foster with the beautiful but weird eyes) comes home early and hears the shower running. She walks slowly into the bathroom, where the playful sounds and giggles of two grow louder and the outlines of two naked people can be seen through the shower door. She fears Perry has reverted to his gay ways and is showering with another man - I'm hoping and praying. She opens the door and there (in almost full naked glory) is Perry with another woman. I was crushed! But the images and possibilities were forever etched in my memory.
Perry has had a long and fairly successful career. He was always appearing in something somewhere and ever time I saw him, and to this day, I still remember him in that movie.
