Joe Dante on

Candy Stripe Nurses

Released 1974
Distributor New World

One of the most popular of the New World “nubile nurses” series and the only one to star the late Candice Rialson, who passed away seemingly unaware of her near-Bettie Page-like cult following. Brainless, breathless and taste-free in the late, lamented New World drive-in fodder fashion. NSFW
