Movie Review: Centerfold Girls

Centerfold Girls

The Centerfold Girls (1974)
Directed by John Peyser
Starring Andrew Prine, Jamie Lyn Bauer, Aldo Ray, Ray Danton, Francine York, Tiffany Bolling

Sure, this might sound a little jaded, but if you have a movie that was made in the 70’s that starred Andrew Prine, then you are going to be entertained, plain and simple. Prine is one of these actors that I grew up watching, in both movies and TV and always loved seeing this guy on screen. Sometimes he was the good guy, sometimes the bad guy. But always entertaining. His career started doing a lot of TV westerns, but it was in 1971 when he appeared in the title role of Simon, King of the Witches that started him in the genre. From there, he appeared in movies like Crypt of the Living Dead (1973), Barn of the Naked Dead (1974), Grizzly (1976), The Evil (1978), Amityville 2 (1982), and even on the TV show V, as one of the reptilian alien invaders. Prine was always giving a great performance, even if the film was lacking in other departments.

Interivew: Andrew Prine

Andrew Prine has been a favorite of mine for a very long time. He is one of those actors that just seeing his name in the credits told me that I was going to enjoy this movie, even if was only the parts he appeared in! A regular in a lot of movies, both film and television, playing all sorts of characters, both good and bad. And no matter what, he was always holding our attention while on screen. He really is a genre icon.

We had the opportunity to sit down with Prine for a few minutes back in April of 2005, to get some of his thoughts on some of the movies that he worked on that we loved so much. Since we didn’t have a lot of time, I would just throw some titles out there and we’d go from there. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did talking to this legend.
