I think Andy Sidaris may have single handedly kept mom-and-pop video stores open in the late 80s, early '90s. Well, that and keeping former Playboy Playmates and Penthouse Pets fully employed. With Julie Strain, Dona Speir, Hope Marie Carlton, Sybil Danning and the occasional "star" like Erik Estrada and Pat Morita, the former ABC's Wide World of Sports director Sidaris made 12 flicks in his "Bullets, Bombs and Babes" style. Whether through an oft-rented VHS tape or a late-night showing on Cinemax, you were guaranteed explosions, secret agent plots and gratuitous topless hot tub and shower scenes.
One interesting fact about Sidaris (well, besides his seven Emmys, 25 years at Wide World of Sports, Monday Night Football and the Olympics) is that he was the originator of the sports "honey shot." He was the sports director who pioneered the practice of having a cameraman zoom in on cheerleaders and hot girls in the stands, thereby inadvertently leading to future careers for the likes of Pamela Anderson and Katherine Webb (and keeping Brent Musburger interested during boring games).
Anyway, $4.50 for 12 movies with free Prime shipping is a steal. Amazon link.
