Andy Sidaris was the man who revolutionized ABC’s Wide World of Sports. As a director, he told cameramen to shoot cheerleaders and hot woman at the games. He knew that guys didn’t always need to see sweaty players, screaming coaches and Howard Cosell. The viewers enjoyed a little sex appeal with the action. Sidaris carried this philosophy into his cinematic career. He made sure his films were packed with Playboy Playmates and Penthouse Pets. The dozen films he made in the mid-80s to early-90s became staples of late night cable channels with their dangerous of woman with guns bigger than their bikinis. Currently his dozen titles are out of print and selling for high prices in the used market.
Girls, Guns and G-Strings: The Andy Sidaris Collection arrives on March 22 from Mill Creek. The boxset featuring all twelve films features a price tag under $10. Thrill to a marathon of The Dallas Connection, Day of the Warrior, Do or Die, Enemy Gold, Fit to Kill, Guns, Hard Hunted, Hard Ticket to Hawaii, Malibu Express, Picasso Trigger, Savage Beach and Return to Savage Beach. The films starred Roberta Vasquez, Dona Speir, Kimberly McArthur, Barbara Edwards, Lorraine Michaels and Julie Strain. You know how much it would cost to buy their vintage magazines? Girls, Guns and G-Strings packs what the titles promises.
