An iconic, hugely-popular Turkish film-star and (sometimes) TV actress.
Born out of wedlock on 21 June 1954 in Istanbul; real name Kâmile Suat Ebrem.
1981 and 2005
7 April 2005
glistened as the ingénue Bihter
in the conventional film
(In Search Of Love) 1975.
The film was an adaptation of
Halıt Zıya Uşaklıgil's novel by
the same name, published 1900.
In his book Türk Sinemasında Cinselliğin Tarih (History of Sexuality in the Turkish Cinema)148 film historian Agâh Özgüç 'awards' Müjde Ar the dubious title of En Çok Irzına Geçilen Kadın (The Most-Raped Woman In Turkish Movie History). As exemplary evidence of his claim, Özgüç cites a vicious assault scene from Müjde Ar's Iffet (in which Ar plays a duped innocent in the title-role) and another such scene from Aile Kadın (Family Woman) in which Ar plays Pınar, a happily married woman whose past returns to haunt her with a vengeance. Both films were directed by Kartal Tibet in 1982 and 1983 respectively.

Cüneyt Arkın (real name: Fahrettin
Cüretlibatur, b. 1937) made his professional film debut in 1964, as the prize for winning a contest sponsored by Artist
Magazine. He acted in 15 movies that year, filling increasingly important roles -- and he hasn't looked back since... In a sort of left-handed
compliment, Arkın has been called the Alain Delon (b. 1935) of Turkey. But if you compare the
range and depth of their movie careers, it's Delon who should take the back seat to Arkın. Consider the
career comparisons of these two, still active, film stars -- Appearances as an Actor: Arkın (310) Delon (89); Director: Arkın (38)
Delon (3); Screenplay Writer: Arkın (28) Delon (10). Only in the category of 'Producer' does Delon surpass Arkın as a movie maker --
Delon (21), Arkın (9).

|Plot Summary: Arzu (played by Banu Alkan) is a rising young movie-starlet who makes glamorous TV commercials for cosmetics on the side, to support herself and her live-in school-girl sister Sevda (played by Songül Gündüz). And, Arzu is being stalked surreptitiously...by Cezmi (played by Tolga Savacı), a handsome young drifter (who's the spitting image of Ted Bundy) posing as a free-lance photographer. Cezmi seduces younger sister Sevda and through her he wangles his way to an on-set meeting with Arzu -- and to a very tentative appointment for a free-lance photo-shoot. Waiting until Sevda is off to school one day, Cezmi shows up at Arzu's doorstep unannounced, talks his way inside -- and viciously rapes her. To make matters worse, the public prosecutor deems the evidence of the rape to be problematic -- so Cezmi remains free, and able to strike again... When Cezmi reads that Arzu will be vacationing in Datça before she begins her next movie role, he boards a bus that's Datça-bound...

|Aşk ve Ceza|
(Love and Punishment - 2010)
Turkish TV Drama
|The TV Series Plot: The story follows the fate of a modern İstanbul'lu women (played by Nurgül Yeşilçay (as Yasemin) -- on the rebound from a broken marital engagement) and an eastern Turkish tribal lord (played by Murat Yıldırım [as Savaş Baldar] -- whose family (led by his beloved, but conniving Hanım Ağa mother (played by Tomris İncer [as Şahnur Baldar], live off the eastern drug trade).
While visiting Istanbul, Yılıdırım and Yeşilçay hook up for a 'meaningful' one-night stand that leaves her pregnant, and drives her into seclusion. The lord himself is honorable and after he tracks her down, the two become full time lovers -- in a complicated relationship from which marriage must be excluded...for tribal reasons. Eventually though, events lead to a happy ending, in which Yılıdırım restores his family-name to respectability (by helping police with their enquiries, in the prosecution of his most criminal kin), after which he marries Yeşilçay, who besides his son, has also delivered him a brand.new daughter to boot. The final symbolic tree-watering scene involving the now-prepubescent siblings informs the audience that all is well with the world.|

|Born To Be Bad
Actress in more than 200 films between 1956 and 2008.
Most famous for her portrayals of seksi vamps, blond troublemakers, and wicked jezabels. In the 1960s, she appeared frequently in the fantastik and macera adventure genres of Turkish films -- some of which are considered Dandık Films... films like Kilink Uçan Adam'a Karşı (The Anti-Hero 'Killing' vs. 'Flying Man') 1967, Bağdat Hırsızı (The Thief of Baghdad) 1968, and Kızıl Maske (Red Mask) 1968.
A Rough Start...Avcı's mother was a Kırımlı Tatar and her father was a Tatar from Kazanlı, near Mersin (İçel), Turkey. Father Yusuf died at age 40 of cirrhosis (which also afflicted Atatürk), when Suzan was just 6 years old. Life became a struggle. But when, at age 9, Suzan saw the silent film Edison'un Hayatı (The Life of Edison), it lit a spark in her imagination and, from that moment, she set her sights on becoming a film-star. After Suzan completed elementary school, her mother (Behiye) moved the family (with 2 younger sisters) to Istanbul, where Behiye and Suzan (aged 12) began work as seamstresses in a textile workshop. When Suzan began making more money than her mother, Behiye quit work to look after her younger daughters full time. Suzan's best friend in the workshop, Ayşe Abla, was also a film buff and told Suzan a wonderful story about the time she saw Rüzgar Gibi Geçti (Gone With The Wind) -- which further inspired young Suzan. In 1948, when Suzan was 13, she saw an advert in Yıldız Mecmuası (Star Magazine)...Director Metin Erksan was looking for a 14-15 year-old brunette to act in his next film. When she went on her own to the screen-test, Suzan got the part -- but her mother withheld permission, putting a wet-blanket on Suzan's dream. Suzan Avcı at 15... One day on the beach at Samatya (a favorite place for movie directors, in the Fatih district of Istanbul), a young man brazenly remarked, "You've got beautiful legs." To be continued...

Dilber Ay choose, on occasion, for her name to be shown as Dilberay (with no spaces) on movie marquees and in film titles. That was the case, for instance, in Püsküllü Bela (A Peck Of Trouble) -- aka Dilberim Kıyma Bana (Make Mince-Meat Of Me, Beautiful) directed by Çetin İnanç in 1979.

It was Zerrin
Doğan and Zafir
Seba who first brought 'reel seks' to Turkish films in 1979 -- with their performances in Öyle Bir
Kadın Ki (A Woman Like That). But, according to humorist and 'Erotik' Movie Historian, Cihan Demirci, another female actor followed
close on their heels... in some ways one-upping Doğan/Seba with her enthusiastic 'reel seks' love scenes -- and her taste for the bizarre. In
Sevginin Bedeli (The Equivalent of Love), for example, Ay (in the role of Kezban) fantasizes that her dance partner, Zafer Doğan, is a Catholic Priest to
whom she confesses her sins. And the sensual penance she accepts from him is straight out of Alex Comfort's Joy of Sex. She
pushed the envelope even further in Gece Yaşayan Kadın (Woman Who Lives at Night), Cemile'nin Kaderi (Cemile's Fate)
aka Sokak Kızları (Street Girls), and Takma Kafanı (Don't Get Upset or Trouble
Yourself) with Harika
Öncü, Hakan Özer, Cem Eser, and Çetin
Başaran (all films directed by Yavuz Figenli in 1979)... when she introduced Turkish 'erotik' movie
audiences to gloves-off grup seks for the first time in their cinematic history.
