Later Alligator: You’re Very Pretty


Henry Silva



In Sue Lyon’s final role, a cameo as an NBC network news reporter interviewing great white hunter Henry Silva, hired to kill the titular ALLIGATOR who, born in the sewers and having fed on radiation, has an enormous temperament and appetite… Silva’s character, in the middle of the interview, says: “You’re very pretty.” In which Sue replies, “Thank you.” Providing the Captain Quint of this entertaining JAWS clone has great taste… Sadly, we’d never see that pretty face in movies or anywhere on screen again… she quit in 1980 and never looked back. As for Henry’s fate in ALLIGATOR… Let’s just say he doesn’t win, leaving it to hero Robert Forster to finish the job.
