Dayton weather girl, Tracey Savage, in Friday the 13th: Part 3.

FRDAY THE 13TH: PART 3 (aka Friday the 13th 3-D) (1982)
Jason finally puts on the hockey mask for Part 3 which was originally released in 3D during America’s very short lived re-interest in it in the early 80s. At the time of this writing, no one has bothered to release any of these movies (Jaws 3, Amityville 3 or Spacehunter, to name a few) in 3D on DVD. A shame really, especially in this case where it could significantly up the appeal of one of my favorite installments in this otherwise over-appreciated series. The plot is what you’d expect, but the killings are a bit more jarring and the plot, slightly more coherent (future installments would blow that, however). Tracey Savage, who gets a nice nudie shower scene in before her inevitable demise, became the local weather girl on our CBS affiliate in Dayton, where I grew up – a fact that gave me a considerable charge at the time. [UPDATE: Paramount released special-edition versions of the Friday the 13th series in conjunction with 2009’s F13 remake…including a 3D version of Part 3.]
