Biography

Ola Ray est née le 26 août 1960 à Saint-Louis, dans le Missouri, dans une famille de neuf enfants. À 15 ans, sa mère Ruth s'est remariée avec James Moore, un soldat de l'US Air Force, et la famille a déménagé au Japon pour le suivre à la base de Yokota. Ola y a commencé une carrière de chanteuse et de mannequin, mais une fois revenue aux États-Unis en 1980, elle réalisa qu'il serait difficile d'y percer dans le mannequinat du fait de sa petite taille (environ 1,60 m). C'est alors qu'elle décida de poser pour Playboy, comme tremplin ; elle devint ainsi la playmate du mois pour le numéro de juin 1980, photographiée par Richard Fegley. Puis, repérée par Johnson Products, elle a prêté ses traits à leur produit Classy Curls, des soins capillaires conçus pour les cheveux crépus. Elle a aussi fait des publicités à la télévision et en affichage pour Coca-Cola, McDonald's, des vêtements de sport, du lait, IBM, KFC, Lay's.

Beverly Hills Police Captain Andrew Bogomil, Detective Billy Rosewood, and Sergeant John Taggart are trying to figure out who is behind the "Alphabet Crimes," a series of mostly high end store robberies distinguished by their monogrammed envelopes with an alphabetical sequence the assailants leave behind. Complicating matters is the new "political" state of the Beverly Hills Police Department, headed by incompetent and verbally abusive new police chief Harold Lutz, who is doing everything he can to stay on Mayor Ted Egan's good side. Unimpressed when Rosewood calls the FBI to help solve the case, Lutz holds Bogomil responsible as commanding officer and suspends him, despite Bogomil's efforts to convince him that Rosewood was only following a hunch. Lutz also punishes Taggart and Rosewood by placing them on traffic duty. On the way home, Bogomil is shot and injured by Karla Fry, the chief hench-woman of Maxwell Dent, who secretly is the mastermind behind the Alphabet Crimes. Finding out about the shooting by a news report, Axel Foley abandons his current undercover duties and immediately flies out to Beverly Hills to help find out who shot Bogomil. Taggart and Rosewood agree to assist Foley because of Lutz's attempts to find an excuse to get them fired.
