Formerly a Broadway and Hollywood actor/dancer--he was seen as Indio in the Oscar-winning West Side Story (1961)--Gus Trikonis switched to directing in 1968. During his first years as director, Trikonis paid his dues with such drive-in fodder as Swinging Barmaids (1975), Student Body (1976), Nashville Girl (1976) and Moonshine County Express (1978), all decidedly better than their titles. The one Trikonis film that garnered the largest amount of audience approval was his 1981 blue-collar comedy Take This Job and Shove It. As busy in television as in films (if not busier), Gus Trikonis has called the shots on such top-rated weeklies as Baywatch, and such noteworthy made-for-TV movies as Elvis and the Beauty Queen (1981), Dempsey (1983) and Malice in Wonderland (1985)
