Celebrating The Wild Career Of Deborah Dutch!
First of all, thanks to my Facebook friend for the suggestion to look into the career of Deborah Dutch – I wasn’t aware of her terrific career!
“Never Be Defeated” Indeed!
I found this signed photo from Dutch online, and I love it for two reasons: first, she is empowered in her films, but still playful and sexy as well.
Second, she appears at lots of conventions and is loved by her fans – for good reason!
My “2021 Sex Kitten Countdown” has the career highlights of this empowered Actress!
Deborah was born in Titusville, New Jersey in 1951.
Her first goal was to be a Broadway star, but ended up in Hollywood – and had a great cult film career!
She has more than 80 credits, and here are some of the best, beginning with some Bruce Lee!
Well, a Bruce Lee lookalike!
Her first film credit was from 1976, in one of those Bruce Lee knockoff films called “Bruce Lee Fights Back From The Grave!”
That same year she appeared in the cult classic “Deep Jaws” as well.
In this raunchy comedy, bankrupt studio schemes the government to finance a sexploitation mermaids film. Casting couches thus join the already exploitive studio.
Deborah worked in a variety of TV shows into the 80’s, as well as small roles in mainstream films like this:
This 1988 gem starred “Apollo Creed” himself, Carl Weathers!
Sharon Stone also had a role in this one as well!
Jumping on a cult film trend at the time, Deborah became a “Scream Queen” – and look at some of the wild films she starred in!
“Vice Academy 4”
Deborah was featured in a couple of these great cult films – this one starred Elizabeth Kaitan:
Kaitan also had a great career in cult film and you can see some of her best roles here:
Deborah now jumped into the deep end of the cult cinema pool with films like these:
In “Bikini Drive-In” and “Hell’s Belles”, she appeared as Debra Dare. She was building a great “Scream Queen” persona for herself!
She used the same name for “Attack Of The 60-ft Centerfolds!”
Fred Olen Ray made this gem, which also starred Michelle Bauer:
Bauer was one of the great “Scream Queens” and you can see all of her best work here:
“Caged Women 2” was another cult gem – a 90’s take on a classic 70’s “women in prison” genre:
Did you know that Actress Marie-Pierre Castel starred in this one?
See her wildest film roles here:
A very disturbing genre to be sure – but remember that these two empowered Cult Movie Queens took part:
Linda Blair and Sybil Danning were “Chained Heat” and you can see more about this wild film here:
Back to Deborah Dutch, now appearing as Debra Dare.
Here are some more of her films:
In 2005 she appeared with Fred Savage in “The Last Run”!
Deborah has continued to work in film and TV, and has taken on even more of a creative role in her work:
Released in 2016, Deborah co-directed and produced this film: Teens in LA are being kidnapped and turned into an army of zombies by a demonic madman. With the Heart of Hell in his possession and his army of minions, it appears nothing can stand in his way.
Well, except Deborah!
Check out the trailer:
So as you can see, Deborah is still very active in the film business, and bravo to her for it!
Hope-Marie Carlton was also a great Cult Actress in the 90’s and you can see her best work here:
Hope ended her career in film and Carlton now lives in Colorado.
She left us with some fun action gems – and as with Hope, Director Sidaris also featured this gorgeous Playmate in his films as well!
