New Book: "Talking Sixties Drive-In Movies"

Buster Keaton and Bobbi Shaw in Pajama Party (1964)
I enjoyed Tom Lisanti's latest book, "Talking Sixties Drive-In Movies," for its interviews with a number of lovely drive-in movie actresses, including Bobbi Shaw, Mimsy Farmer, Arlene Charles, Diane Bond, Jan Watson and Nicoletta Machiavelli.  The interviews are open and informative.  A standout is a fascinating talk with Mimsy Farmer, whose career took her from Gidget to Giallo.
