She Wolf of the SS mourns her Grindhouse master

Cult helmsman Don Edmonds dies at 73

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Don Edmonds, the director of 1975 "Naziploitation" classic Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS, has died aged 73, Variety reports.

The veteran helmsman, who also gave the world Ilsa, Harem Keeper of the Oil Sheiks, went to the great Grindhouse in the sky on 30 May as a result of liver cancer.

Originally from Kansas, Edmond's career began on the stage before he picked up roles in TV series such as The Munsters. He found his true vocation, though, in the early 1970s, when he directed soft-core movies Wild Honey and Tender Loving Care.

Following the success of Ilsa, he went on to offer audiences Bare Knuckles, Terror on Tour and Tomcat Angels before turning to production.

Admired by Quentin Tarantino, he produced True Romance and enjoyed numerous outings at cult film conventions.

He did occasionally accept acting roles, and his last appearance before the cameras was, appropriately, in Killer Drag Queens on Dope. ®
