Theyre fast. Theyre beautiful. Theyre deadly . . . they have to be. A fashion photography assignment teams three American models and inadvertently plunges them into the mystery and danger of international espionage in Cover Girl Models. 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. Starring Tara Strohmeier (The Great Texas Dynamite Chase), Pat Anderson (TNT Jackson), Lindsay Bloom (H.O.T.S. ) and Vic Diaz.
In Fly Me, a group of martial arts assassins board a passenger plane. Once in the air, the group terrorizes the passengers and insists that the plane be rerouted to another destination. But they picked the wrong plane to hijack, as these stewardesses dont just serve meals and beverages:their hands and feet are lethal weapons! Starring Pat Anderson (Cover Girl Models), Lenore Kasdorf (Missing In Action) and Vic Diaz.

In the spirit of the Women In Cages Collection triple feature package released in 2011 Shout! Factory are continuing with more Roger Corman Cult Classics (see The Ron Howard Action Pack, other 'Double Features': The Evil / Twice Dead, The Terror Within / Dead Space, Up From the Depths /Demon of Paradise etc.) and are following-up their woman-sploitation Lethal Ladies Collection with a #2 containing the higher bank-roll production The Arena from 1974 on the first dual-layered disc and a second with Fly Me (1973) and Cover Girl Models (1975). There are plenty of the stand-by Corman gals.
The Arena (on disc one alone) and starts with the message that two small scenes are missing from the print they transferred for this new DVD release. In an effort to give you the complete film, they have replaced the two missing scenes, but they are from a 'full frame' master and not in anamorphic widescreen,but still squeezed on the print,so no distortion This occurs only twice, and briefly, during the presentation. The image quality for that feature is very acceptable. There is some frame-specific damage (see sample) but the 2.35:1 visuals are progressively rendered and look pretty good.
Fly Me and Cover Girl Models share disc 2 - also dual-layered and progressive in the slightly bastardized 1.78 aspect ratio. Fly Me has those prominent vertical scratches that were purposely put in Tarantino/Rodriguez Grindhouse films Planet Terror and Death Proof. I am not complaining. Cover Girl Models is very clean and consistent - no issues to speak of. I don't know why - but I wasn't expecting the crime/kidnapping/espionage-esque factor in the last two films. It added some pleasurable entertainment.Read more ›
