Ilsa She-Wolf of the Werewolf Women of the SS?

Original Nazi hottie Dyanne Thorne tells why she never made it into Werewolf Women Of The SS. She spoke to Retro-Crush about it.

Would you want to do big budget action films or independent stuff?

I did want to work with noted directors, but I no longer care to act. There are quality independent films out there now; I relate to many. “Sundance” continues to encourage worthwhile contributions. You’ve got directors like Zombie and Tarrantino who are among those recognized for their style. If they offered me an interesting role I’d consider it. It’s a new century. In the 70’s & 80’s, low budget indies could be made for next to nothing. There was a first week celebration with a flash in “Variety” if a picture brought in $90,000 dollars. That was a big deal 30 years ago; now it’s nothing.

Speaking of Quentin Tarrantino, have you heard of the “Grindhouse” double feature?


Did you know about the fake trailers in the middle?

It was nice to have been invited to be a part of that, but I chose not – I was far too busy at the time with my current activities. I haven’t seen the trailer that they did put together.

Did Rob Zombie get a hold of you?

No, it was his casting gal. She called and then sent an e-mail and a letter. I’m so involved in what I’m doing now that to go to LA for a day just for a lark, doesn’t fit in.

They made a parody, instead of “Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS” they made Werewolves of the SS. Sort of a homage to the Ilsa movie.

Someone asked me if I wanted to make an appearance in it. Again, the time just wasn’t right.
