Trivia

Sara Costa's range firing scenes were filmed on the Alhambra Police Department's shooting range in South El Monte, CA. All scenes shot involved real, live fire, using a Smith and Wesson, Model 19, .357 Magnum revolver. The director wanted to show her firing an impressive score, so it was decided that the instructor, (Patrick Alexander) would be off camera shooting the target which would then be inserted as if it was fired by Sara. In fact she was doing very well in her firearms self defense training, and the target that was shown in the final cut was actually shot by Sara Costa. See more »

Video Store Hit
3 June 2001 | by (Midnight Movie Land) – See all my reviews

I remember when this video hit the old time Mom & Pop video stores in the mid 80s. It had a big promotion, large posters on the walls. Places that would not carry the harder sex videos carried these, or, if you were too embarrassed to go into the "back room", you could still rent this from the front. That's primarily it with this video. It was marketed that way and the box made it look like sleaze. Various strippers are shown and, as filler, we get to see the bahind the scenes of their lives. If it was JUST stripping, it wouldnt qualify as a hoity-toity "documentary" and would have been in that fabled back room. A Stripper's Convention was put together obviously by the video producers (It's a "First Annual"...c'mon ) as an excuse to have a grand stripoff at the end. It's a good look at where stripping was at back then. This was just before "Gentlemen's Clubs" became little more then steroid and silicone driven hard-body gynecology lessons. The ladies are pretty, the dancing may seem a little tame by "Showgirls" standards (which it would make a good double-feature with, call it the "Fast-Forward Film Festival").
