During the 1960s, a bushel of B-movies were produced and aimed at the predominantly teenage drive-in movie audience. At first teens couldn't get enough of the bikini-clad beauties dancing on the beach or being wooed by Elvis, but by 1966 the teen audiences were more interested in the mini-skirted, go-go boot wearing, independent-minded girls of action, spy, fantasy and science fiction movies. Profiled here are fifty of the sexy, young actresses every teenage girl envied and every teenage boy desired. Among those included are Quinn O'Hara, Donna Loren, Meredith MacRae, Gail Gilmore, Sue Ane Langdon, Juliet Prowse, Cynthia Pepper, Marlyn Mason, Carole Wells, Lori Williams, Beverly Washburn, Brenda Benet, Hilarie Thompson, Regina Carrol, Arlene Martel, Melody Patterson, Andrea Dromm, Sharyn Hillyer, Diane Bond, and Wende Wagner. Each bio includes a filmography that lists the actresses' more notable films. Some of the profiles include the actresses' candid comments and anecdotes about their films, the people they worked with, and their feelings about acting. A list of websites that provide further information is also included.
"Lisanti gives 1960s glamour girls something they never had before in film circles: respect. His approach is a mixture of fun with the seriousness of a film historian. The concoction is irresistible, and it's fantastic that these gals get their turn to tell their stories and share their good and bad times in the movie world...valuable...highly recommended. Lisanti is the supreme chronicler of the '60s era...simply amazing...excellent writer"--Classic Images; "wildly entertaining...well-researched and informative"--Paper; "Lisanti does a great service to fans of these movies, actresses, and the times"--Cult Movies; "interesting"--Femme Fatales; "well researched and loaded with pictures...fine tribute"--Shock Cinema; "there are many things I love about Tom Lisanti's Drive-in Dream Girls, a babe-by-babe survey of some of 1960s cinema's sexiest screen starlets, but one that makes it the wheat among similar chaff is how candid its subjects are"--Bookgasm; "read this book"--Sex-Kitten.Net. --このテキストは、ペーパーバック版に関連付けられています。商品の説明をすべて表示する

While Fantasy Femmes also profiled 12 '60s sweeties, Drive-In Dream Gals looks at an additional 30 favorites, all longer profiles than the first book. They are: Brenda Benet (Beach Ball, Harum Scarum); Diane Bond (Pajama Party, A Swingin' Summer); Cindy Carol (Gidget Goes To Rome, Dear Brigitte); Regina Carroll (Satan's Sadists, Angels' Wild Women); Patti Chandler (Beach Party series, Ski Party); Nancy Czar (WIld Guitar, Winter-a-Go-Go); Jackie DeShannon (C'mon Let's Live A Little, Surf Party); Jill Donohue (Winter A Go-Go, Nobody's Perfect); Joan Freeman (Roustabout, The Reluctant Astronaut); Susan Hart (Ride The Wild Surf, Dr. Goldfoot & the Bikini Machine); Anne Helm (Follow That Dream, The Magic Sword); Mary Hughes (Beach Party series, Ski Party); Mikki Jamison (Beach Ball, Ski Party); Candy Johnson (Beach Party series, Pajama Party); Marta Kristen (Judy from Lost In Space, Beach Blanket Bingo as the mermaid); Meredith MacRae (Bikini Beach, Billie Jo on Petticoat Junction); Dodie Marshall (Easy Come Easy Go, Spinout); Claudia Martin (For Those Who Think Young, Ghost In The Invisisble Bikini); Jenny Maxwell (Blue Hawaii, Take Her She's Mine); Mary Mitchel (A Swingin' Summer, Girls On The Beach); Laurie Mock (Hot Rods To Hell, Riot On Sunset Strip); Valora Noland (Beach Party, Muscle Beach Party); Angelique Pettyjohn (Hell's Belles, Clambake); Pat Priest (Marilyn on The Munsters, Easy Come Easy Go); Juliet Prowse (G.I. Blues, Who Killed Teddy Bear?); Bobbi Shaw (How To Stuff A Wild Bikini, Pajama Party); Ulla Stromstedt (tv's Flipper, Catalina Caper); Wende Wagner (Out Of Sight, tv's Green Hornet); Debbie Watson (Cool Ones, Tammy and the Millionaire); Venita Wolf (Catalina Caper).
As I mentioned in my review of Fantasy Femmes, most of these lovely ladies had their careers end by the time they reached 30. A lot of that had to do with getting married, having kids, and being expected by society to concentrate on raising their family. Another key reason was the end of the studio contract system by the late '60s. Most of the gals profiled here were contract players at one time or another. With no studio to support them, they often faded away, leaving us to savor their all too brief careers and wishing we had gotten to see them grow in their work.
