Andy Sidaris was a revolutionary sports programming director who eventually went on to direct a series of B-movies starring several "Playboy" and "Penthouse" models. Born in Chicago but raised in Shreveport, Louisiana, Sidaris always had a passion for sports and began working as a sports television director for ABC in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Sidaris won an Emmy for his directorial work during the 1968 Summer Olympics, but was more recognized for his work on "Monday Night Football." During sports broadcasts Sidaris would randomly cut to attractive women in the stands and cheerleaders on the sidelines during breaks in the action in what would forever be known as the "honey shot." Sidaris left sports programming in the late 1970s in order to write, direct, and produce his own films, which bordered on softcore pornography and always featured bikini-clad women toting heavy weaponry. Sidaris's films during the 1980s and 1990s became known as the "Bullets, Bombs, and Babes" series and would later be known as the "L.E.T.H.A.L." series. Sidaris would often call upon busty actresses and models like Julie Strain, Roberta Vasquez, and Dona Speir for action films like "Hard Ticket to Hawaii," "Savage Beach," and "Fit to Kill." Sidaris stoped directing films in 1998 but would occasionally appear as an actor in guest roles mainly in the erotic parody film series, "The Bare Wench Project" during the 2000s until his death due to throat cancer at the age of 76.
