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:

Corinne made a splash in this cult hit:
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!

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:
