Jack Hill on

The Swinging Cheerleaders

Released 1974
Distributor Centaur

Jack Hill tells us the story behind his fast and funky drive-in perennial, a sort-of follow-up to the 1973 hit The Cheerleaders.‚ The fact that the trailer reuses the same cheerleading shot several times is an indication of how far the budget had to be stretched.
