Summary note
  • "During the 1960s, the predominantly teenage drive-in movie audience couldn't get enough of the bikini-clad beauties dancing on the beach or being wooed by Elvis Presley, and later the mini-skirted, go-go boot wearing, independent-minded gals of spy spoofs, hot rod movies and biker flicks."
  • "Profiled herein are fifty sexy actresses that teenage girls envied and teenage boys desired including Quinn O'Hara, Melody Patterson, Hilarie Thompson, Donna Loren, Jackie DeShannon, Meredith MacRae, Arlene Martel, Cynthia Pepper, and Beverly Washburn. Some like Sue Ane Langdon, Hilarie Thompson, Marlyn Mason, and Carole Wells appeared in major studio productions while others such as Regina Carrol, Susan Hart, Angelique Pettyjohn and Patti Chandler were seen in drive-in movies only. Each bio contains a complete filmography. Many also include the actresses' candid comments and anecdotes about their films, the people they worked with, and their feelings about acting."--Jacket.
