SALLI SACHSE, BEACH GIRL TO ARTIST
Today, former ’60s starlet Salli Sachse is a talented fine artist who resides in the San Diego area and has had her art work exhibited throughout the region. Her web site , which includes her work available for sale, now also pays tribute to her past life as a ’60s starlet with a whole clip page from her movies.
Discovered by American International Pictures, she appeared in every beach movie except one from Muscle Beach Barty through Beach Blanket Bingo through The Ghost in the Invisible Bikini. When the tide rode out for most of the beach girls in 1966, Salli continued on playing racing car groupies in Fireball 500 and Thunder Alley; a beer-swilling biker chick in Devil’s Angels; and most memorably her iconic turn as the LSD Freak-Out Girl opposite Peter Fonda in The Trip. Below is a wonderful tribute clip:
