Phyllis Davis Is “Sweet Sugar!” Movie Sex Kitten Was In Cult Films And “Vega$” Too!

“The searing sting of the whip burned the brand of hate into her heart!”

How can you pass up a film that has that claim in the trailer!

One of the great things about being part of cult film fan pages is that you come across an Actress like Phyllis Davis – and movies like this one!


Phyllis Is “Sweet Sugar!”

I appreciate the companies that are continuing to put out classic “drive-in” far like this – these films are great action films with the requisite “B” movie conventions.

1972’s “Sweet Sugar” is a classic “women in prison” exploitation film – as the trailer notes:

“The searing sting of the whip burned the brand of hate into her heart!”

Check it out!

After being set up by a crooked Politician, Sugar is put on a chain gang run by the notorious Dr. John – who performs cruel medical experiments on the people who work for him, although in this case he just undresses Phyllis!

Of course, it IS prison, which means Sugar ends up in chains – and as all “women in prison” fans know, they take a LOT of showers in jail!

I loved “Sweet Sugar” – and Phyllis commands the screen – here is a look at more of her credits!

One of her early films was Russ Meyer’s wild spoof “Beyond the Valley of the Dolls” from 1970!

Of course, Meyer loved a certain type of Actress – you can click here to see some of his favorite stars and films:

Davis worked in a wide variety of films, including roles in “Terminal Island” (1973), “The Day of the Dolphin” (1973), and “The Choirboys” (1977), among others…

She also co-stared on TV in the huge hit series “Vega$”. Davis played Beatrice Travis, secretary and Girl Friday of Dan Tanna (Robert Urich), the private investigator who was the show’s main character.

She was in all 66 episodes of the show from 1978 to 1981 on ABC.

Davis also acted in “Magnum PI”, “The Love Boat” and many other shows as well throughout her career, but it was “Sweet Sugar” that captured my attention!

Tragically, she died of cancer in 2013 at the age of 73, but had a great career in film and TV of all kinds…
