It's So Sleazy Being Green

By a demon unruly, possessed,
Her libido is duly undressed
But this beast overheated
By a priest is defeated
With this he-man it shouldn't have messed.

Carol Speed is Abby (William Girdler, 1974), daughter-in-law of preacher and archaeologist William Marshall. Apparently possessed by Eshu, a frisky spirit of the Yoruba religion let loose by Marshall in Nigeria, Abby turns green and grows bushy eyebrows. The film virtually disappeared after Warner Bros.sued over copyright infringement of The Exorcist. Here's David Cairns on Abby.

A demonically-possessed Carol Speed ought to be some kind of dream come true, but as you can see from the image, it's not as hot as one might hope.
