Caufield stared alongside Michelle Pfeiffer in the follow up to John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John’s smash hit film. Released in 1982 it’s acknowledged as one of the most unssuccessful sequals ever.  Caufield went on to star in a bunch of ’80s movies including ‘Electric Dreams’ and also appeared on the TV shows ‘Dynasty’ and its spin-off ;The Colbys’.
