HARD TICKET TO HAWAII
"In 1985, independent filmmaker Andy Sidaris scored a home video and pay-cable hit with MALIBU EXPRESS, a traditional action film starring a television hunk as an Americanized James Bond. That film’s direct sequel – HARD TICKET TO HAWAII – made some significant changes to the action cinema format. Hard Ticket relegated the muscular male to a supporting role while making a pair of former Playmates the primary action heroes of the film. Special Agent Donna Hamilton and her partner Taryn square off against the forces of the sinister Mr. Chang, a drug smuggler. Undercover as the beautiful pilots of the Molokai Cargo Company, Donna, Taryn and their team use rocket launchers, machine guns, kung fu, throwing stars and a razor-tipped Frisbee to bring Chang’s gang – and a radioactive mutant snake—to justice. Hard Ticket to Hawaii is the seminal film of the “Girls with Guns” genre and is one of the best examples of Sidaris’ “Triple B” formula: Bullets, Bombs and Babes." - 92Y Tribeca Dir: Andy Sidaris. Starring Ronn Moss, Donna Speir, Hope Marie Carlton and Harold Diamond. 96 mins. 1987. 35mm. 7:30pm
