If you were at the drive-in, they were on the screen. They were The Girls on the Beach, The Mini-Skirt Mob, The Pleasure Seekers, The Doll Squad. Posters called them "devastation in a bikini!" and "the swinginest thing on Waikiki!" What would sixties cinema have been without the young, beautiful, and hardworking actresses who filled out the genre roles? Familiar faces in beach and biker movies, they also appeared in some of the sixties' best (from Planet of the Apes to Cool Hand Luke), working with some of Hollywood's biggest stars and greatest directors. Author and interviewer Tom Lisanti takes you back in time and behind the scenes for a look at Hollywood as 20 of the sixties' "fantasy femmes" knew it. Filled with photographs and featuring a complete filmography for each actress, it's a beach blanket full of facts and fun for every fan of sixties cinema.
