Celebrating Cult Actress Corinne Alphen – From Pet Of The Year To “Spring Break!”

Celebrating Cult Actress Corinne Alphen – AKA Corinne Wahl!

First of all, thanks again to two of my FB friends who asked for this profile – I wasn’t familiar with Corinne’s work but it’s worth celebrating!

My “2023 Sex Kitten Countdown” looks at an Actress who had a great run of campy hits in the 80’s!

Corinne Alphen was born on September 27, 1954 in Lynn, Massachusetts. 

According to her terrific IMDB.com bio, her father William was a Deputy Chief of Police in Lynn, Massachusetts!

Corrine moved to Los Angeles when she was seventeen and studied acting at Santa Monica City College.

As wasn’t unusual for LA, her beauty got noticed – and next thing you know, she was a Penthouse Pet!

Corinne was featured as the Penthouse Pet of the Month in June 1978…

Corinne’s success continued – she was chosen as the Penthouse Pet of the Year in 1982.

After this exposure in the magazine, Corinne got into film and TV work.

She got her start in the 1982 film “Brain Waves”, along with Suzanna Love, who had a run of 80’s hits herself:

See some of her most provocative work here:

Corinne made a splash in this cult hit:

“Spring Break”

This 1983 sex comedy is perfect drive-in fare for the time – and guess what?

It was directed by Sean Cunningham, who a decade earlier made the shocking “Last House On The Left!”

Here’s the trailer:

This is a great example of an 80’s cult comedy – goofy splits, lots of sun and skin…easy to watch!

“Amazon Women On The Moon”

Corinne was also one of the featured talent in this film, a series of short vignettes – look at the cast!

Yes, Sybil Danning was in one of the vignettes as well:

What a career!

You can see all of Danning’s terrific work by clicking on my story here:

Corinne continued to work across film and TV over the next few years. Here are a few more of her films at this time:

She was married for several years to Actor Ken Wahl and acted under the name Corinne Wahl for the next few years…

Corinne continue to rack up film and TV credits until leaving acting in 1991.

According to IMDB.com, Corinne eventually became a professional tarot card reader!

Bravo to her for such a great career…it reminded me of another popular Cult Movie Queen of that time:

Monique Gabrielle had a great run of cult films and you can see some of her best here:

Here’s another 80’s Actress who had a fun run of cult films:

Roxanne Kernohan had some great films, but a tragic death…you can see her story here:

And here’s another terrific 80’s Actress:

Bobbee Bresee was in “Evil Spawn” and more!

See her biggest hits here:

And don’t forget the great 80’s Scream Queen Michelle Bauer!

She took a long bath with Brinke Stevens and Linnea Quigley – see more of her career here:

Another Cult Movie Queen also starred in a slew of great 80’s sci-fi films and wacky comedies:

Ruth Collins starred in films such as “Prime Evil” and yes, at times she looked a lot like Scarlett Johanssen!

  3. I have had a crush on Corinne ever since her Penthouse spread. What an outstanding body! I loved her in Spring Break too. Too bad she didn’t show a little more skin in that movie. Corinne deserved more movie parts for reasons of her beauty alone. Thanks for bringing back a pleasant memory.
