9. Lana Clarkson In Deathstalker (1983)
Stories of warriors, wizards and monsters tend to be thought of as kids' stuff - but this isn't always the case. The deluge of sword and sorcery movies which popped up in the early 1980s are often jaw-dropping for the level of sex and violence on show, and the Roger Corman-produced Deathstalker is a fine example of this.
For evidence, we need look no further than Lana Clarkson's character Kiara. Initially presented as a mysterious cloaked swordsman who invades the titular warrior Deathstalker's camp, it is very quickly revealed she is in fact a woman - thanks to the fact that wears nothing under that cloak but a thong. And, while occasionally she dons pasties for modesty, that's the same look she boasts the whole movie.
Clarkson became quite the icon of 80s sword and sorcery, taking the lead in the similarly clothes-light Barbarian Queen and its sequel. Her story met a tragic end when she was shot dead by music producer Phil Spector in 2003.
