When an off-off Broadway musical from London involving transvestites from another world and their attempt to create a muscleman and a clean-cut couple was made into a major motion picture and released to theaters - it not surprisingly, flopped big time. It was only after "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" was released to the midnight movie circuit that it gained a rabid cult following. Its many fans dress as characters in the film and shout out additions to the dialogue making it a runaway success - forty years and counting. The stars of "Rocky Horror" have gone out to bigger and better things - or kept a low profile many years later.
Actor Tim Curry suffered a stroke several years ago which has limited his activities.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Tim Curry, who played the fishnet-clad Dr. Frank N. Furter went on to mainstream motion picture success with meaty roles in "Clue" and "Home Alone 2." Winning a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2015 Tony Awards, Curry suffered a stroke several years ago which has limited his activities.
Susan Sarandon, who played the nerdy Janet Weiss went on to major screen stardom in such roles as "Thelma and Louise," winning the Oscar for Best Actress in "Dead Man Walking" in 1995. She says she has always been mystified by the "Rocky Horror" cult.
Singer Meat Loaf, who played greaser Eddie would go on to musical super stardom with his album "Bat Out of Hell," which he was working on at the time of appearing in "Rocky Horror."
As for "Rocky Horror" himself - physique model Peter Hinwood gave up acting altogether after the film. He manages an antique shop today and says he had no illusions that he was terrible actor!
