Mini Bio (1)
Strikingly buxom, ravishing and voluptuous redheaded stunner Dyanne Thorne will forever live on in cult exploitation cinema infamy for her ferocious and frightening portrayal of wicked Nazi villainess Ilsa in the notoriously nasty "Ilsa" features made throughout the 1970s.
Dyanne was born on October 14, 1943, in Greenwich, Connecticut, and grew up in New Jersey and New Zealand. She gave her first performance at age three in a church play. She studied acting in New York with Stella Adler and Lee Strasberg. Dyanne made her film debut with a minor role as a college student in the comedy film Who Was That Lady? (1960). She was especially impressive as a kinky swinger in Joseph W. Sarno's sensational softcore gem Sin in the Suburbs (1964). She had a small role as a cocktail waitress in the groovy satire The President's Analyst (1967). Other memorable roles include the bumbling Fairy Godmother in the bawdy Pinocchio (1971), an alluring witch in the steamy Blood Sabbath (1972), a faithless wife in the tawdry Point of Terror (1971), a hooker in the crude Wam Bam Thank You Spaceman (1975), one of the titular lovely ladies in the wild The Swinging Barmaids (1975), a crazy asylum inmate in the tacky Hellhole (1985) and Jim Belushi's aggressively flirtatious transsexual father in the amusing deadpan hoot Real Men (1987).
Dyanne did guest spots on the television series Naked City (1958), The Felony Squad (1966), Star Trek (1966), Car 54, Where Are You? (1961), T.H.E. Cat (1966) and The Wackiest Ship in the Army (1965). Outside of her film and television work, Thorne has also performed in Broadway road tours and done comedy on the Las Vegas stage (she starred in her own popular comedy revue called "Sex Over 40"). In real life, she's the total radical opposite of her cruel and formidable screen persona: She's a very kind and sweet woman who's an ordained minister and co-founder of the International Science of Mind Prayer Circle and runs her own private wedding chapel service with her actor/musician husband Howard Maurer in Las Vegas, Nevada.
