Its popularity reached its peak in the second half of the 80s, when the already familiar “Dirty Dancing” was released in cinemas all over the world. Although the actress has appeared in dozens of productions since then, she unfortunately hasn’t been able to replicate the success of her role as charming Frances “Baby” Houseman. The star is largely blamed for this situation on those who, after the resounding success of “Whirling Sex”, persuaded her to have nose surgery.

Rather than propel her career forward, a drastic change in appearance caused the actress to lose her identity almost overnight in the eyes of viewers and industry people.
