Conventional and 'Erotik' Turkish Movies Stars
Arzu Okay Biography 2/6

Okay On Top

As mentioned in Part One, Arzu Okay's movie career took off in 1970 (when she was just sweet 16) like a Maganda's shot -- in the conventional movie Ölünce Kadar (Until Death) opposite Ayhan Işık, the popular classically-trained actor who died tragically just 9 years later of sun-induced cerebral hemorrhage.

And when she followed Ölünce Kadar with a string of other successful, conventional film performances, it was clear that she was bound for movie stardom.

Arzu Okay even enlivened musical movie scenes as a teenager,
like the one she lip-synched for Sevgili Hocam (Dear Teacher) in 1972
in which she butters-up teacher (Sadri Alışik)
with a rousing rendition of Senden Başkı Hiç (No One Like You)...
until Arzu's overbearing daddy (Hulusi Kentmen) shows up
to put a damper on the festivities...

Consider this...Although Arzu Okay 'only' made 4 movies in 1970 (when she was just 16), the number of her film performances in 1971 exploded to 20. Among her more memorable movies that year were Rüyü Gibi (Like a Dream) directed by Ömer Lütfi Akad and Kara Gün (Black Day) directed by Bilge Olgaç. In 1972, Okay was featured in another 15 movies -- mainly because beautiful, innocent-looking young girls were very much in vogue that year in the Turkish Cinema.

Arzu Okay, it seemed, was on the way to a phenomenal conventional film career.

But in 1973 (the year following the tremendous financial success of the erotik film Parçala Behçet), something trembled in conventional Turkish cinema production centers. And the number of Arzu Okay's film releases dwindled to 3 -- as if 1973 was a harbinger of what 1974 held in store.

As a teenager, Arzu Okay had been featured in more than 40 conventional films in the 4-year period between 1970-1973. But there were big changes in store for her in 1974, as she left her teenage years behind...
