Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role 1989
Plays Character That Is Related To The Sex Trade Industry
Tamara Reshevsky aka Brenda in Secret Weapons 1985
Also Known as
Secrets of the Red Bedroom
Character Is A Spy Seductress
I like the other title better (“Secrets of the Red Bedroom”), but I suppose “Secret Weapons” is the catchier title. It is quite the mystery as to why Geena would agree to do a role like this. After her success with “Tootsie” and “Buffalo Bill,” this part is such a throwaway supporting role. Plus, she is such a staunch feminist. She has a foundation to bring more attention to the role of women in the media. But then again the part was over 30 years ago. It was an NBC film, and she had a deal with the network for a series. So you connect the dots. Anyways in this movie, Genna plays a poor Russian, who is recruited by the KGB to be a Spy Seductress. Her job is to seduce high-level Government men who are married – in effect getting them in a compromising position. All so they can be blackmailed and pumped for information. So the Soviet government could use against the Americans.
