Upcoming Spy DVDs: Cover Girl Models (1975)
Shout! Factory has been re-releasing a bunch of out of print (or never in print) Roger Corman exploitation movies in cool multi-movie sets lately, and DVD Drive-In reports that this January's Lethal Ladies Collection: Volume 2 will include the low-budget Seventies spy movie Cover Girl Models. According to the studio copy, "a fashion photography assignment teams three American models and inadvertently plunges them into the mystery and danger of international espionage. When an invaluable roll of microfilm is sewed into one of the girls’ fashion gowns, they are drawn into the violence and intrigue of a spy-vs.-counterspy conspiracy." It's all just an excuse for T&A of course, but that's the Seventies for you. Cover Girl Models was previously issued on a Region 1 disc from Televista for Latin American companies. The set also includes the stewardesses-vs-hijackers movie Fly Me and a most welcome reissue of the long out-of-print (and very pricey on the collector's market) Pam Grier gladiator classic The Arena. Extras include trailers and TV spots as well as all the Arena special features from the out of print New Concorde DVD, plus a new director's commentary on that one. Retail is an affordable $24.97 for the 2-disc set, which hits stores on January 24, 2012.
