Some sources list 1954 as the year of Ms. D'Angelo's birth.
Contrary to popular opinion, D'Angelo's first released film was not "Annie Hall" (1977). That was the first film she shot, but it spent so long in post-production that another feature, "The Sentinel," although produced after "Annie Hall," arrived in theaters earlier.
About her first nude scene in "The Sentinel": "Michael Winner, the director, (convinced me to do it). After reading the script I said, 'Do you really think this is a role I should do? On page 60, I'm eating the brains out of someone's head!' He said, 'But my dear, you'll be eating the brains out of Chris Sarandon's head and he's just been nominated for an Academy Award for "Dog Day Afternoon".' I said, 'Okay, but on page 113, I'm a deaf-mute lesbian demon!' He said, 'But my dear, your partner will be Sylvia Miles and she's been nominated twice.' So my first nude scene was as a deaf-mute lesbian demon with a pair of cymbals, oddly enough." --Beverly D'Angelo in Movieline, May, 1995.
