In a perfect world, Doris Wishman would be a familiar name to all; but since I know the world is an imperfect place, I will offer a very brief summation of "who she was" (in terms of her importance in filmdom, of course) as an introduction to this column. Doris, Ms Wishman if you're nasty, was arguably one of the world's most well known B-Movie directors - of her time or any time - and I'd argue the only "famous" female exploitation filmmaker ever. (So, yes, she is one of my heroes.) Classic cult films like Nudes On The Moon, Let Me Die A Woman and Deadly Weapons would have been enough to cement her legend but the fact that, instead of retiring or otherwise putting her film making days behind her as she got older, she continued to make movies well into her 80s further puts her into a category all her own. Sadly, Doris' career came to an end when she passed away in 2002 but her cinematic legacy and influence live on. And thanks to the world's love affair with the DVD format - her films are more readily available now than ever, which can only be considered a good thing. So grab some napkins & let's dive in.
