Mini Bio (1)

Bill Adler was a handsome and charming actor, who appeared with pleasing regularity in a bunch of enjoyably trashy 70s low-budget drive-in exploitation features. He often popped up in movies for the prolific B-flick outfit, Crown International Pictures. Adler not only studied his craft at the Goodman School of Drama in Chicago, but also attended both Trinity University in Texas and Wayne State University in Detroit. Bill made his film debut as the sleazy "Fingers" in Jack Hill's terrific Switchblade Sisters (1975) (aka "Switchblade Sisters"). Other memorable roles include antagonistic drag race champion, "Duane", in the strictly so-so The Pom Pom Girls (1976) (Adler did all his own stunts in this movie), the groovy "Steve" in the pleasingly silly The Van (1977), and the cocky "Bobby" in the immensely fun'n'funky romp, Van Nuys Blvd. (1979). Adler had guest spots on the TV shows, Wonder Woman (1975), CHiPs (1977), Trapper John, M.D. (1979) and Vega$ (1978). On stage, Bill performed in Shakespeare plays and other classic dramas. Outside of acting, Bill Adler is also a qualified voice and speech instructor. He's the father of sons, Luke and Brent. He now runs his own clothing line called "Will Leather Goods".
