Chris and Mike delve into another Crown International classic. And this one really is a classic. The Beach Girls (1982) is pretty much the perfect guilty pleasure - a movie that features two beach parties and pretty much nothing else.
School just got out for the summer and Sarah has invited her two friends Ducky and Ginger to spend the weekend with her at her Uncle Carl's beach house. What ensues is two beach parties for the ages.
Mike and Chris uncover some interesting information about the writer of this movie as well as what happened to some of the stars of the film. Crown was really firing on all cylinders with this film.
Finally! The amazing people over at Drafthouse Films have released one of the greatest mysteries in LA cinema. In 2005 a strange and mysterious movie appeared in four local movie theathers with absolutely no promotion of any kind. It's director, cast and even basic information couldn't even be found on IMDB. During it's initial run the film only made $70. It gained very little attention online and was doomed to obscurity; that is until now.
Chris and Mike discuss the background of the film: how it was made over the course of two decades, what happened to John Rad, as well as a personal connection Mike has to this film. This is the Mount Everest of bad movies!
Chris and Mike delve into Crown International's most successful film, the teen sexploitation classic, My Tutor (1983).
From the IMDB synopsis: A rich father hires a tutor for his son. The son is a horny teenager and the tutor is a gorgeous blonde. Complications ensue.
