Rachel Sweet

Penny Valentine, Creem, October 1979

IN HER TIGHT jeans and t-shirt her body looks like a 12-year-old's. Her face and her manner tell another story. Make-up across her broad cheekbones, the startlingly thick orange hair caught back in combs. Innocently worldly-wise; totally spontaneous in interview; tough in the way kid film stars are when they grow into their teens. Dump Rachel Sweet down any-where and she'd cope because she's single-minded enough to get from A-Z.
