A lot of beautiful AND talented ladies appeared in Zalman King's movies, and shows. He's responsible for TWO MOON JUNCTION, WILD ORCHID, RED SHOE DIARIES, and a lot more.

Sheryl Lee, Sherilyn Fenn, Brigitte Bako, Ally Sheedy, and Jacqueline Bisset are just a few of his leading ladies.


I think most folks are familiar with the RED SHOE DIARIES movie, and cable tv series. But, most folks don't know that the RED SHOE DIARIES was also released as a series of books. Zalman King was making soft-core erotica that appealed to women long before all those FIFTY SHADES OF GREY books were released.

I love TWO MOON JUNCTION. It's so wonderfully cheesy. I don't like WILD ORCHID as much as TWO MOON JUNCTION, but I still think it's worth watching.

Mr. King also directed Traci Lords in a music video.

Zalman King ( 1942 – 2012 )

Zalman King wrote, directed, acted, and produced.

Some of Mr. King's acting credits include..... THE MUNSTERS, BONANZA, MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E., GUNSMOKE, LAND OF THE GIANTS, ADAM-12, THE F.B.I., CHARLIE'S ANGELS ( original tv series ), GALAXY OF TERROR, and more!

He also appeared in one of my favorite episodes of THE ALFRED HITCHCOCK HOUR. The episode was called MEMO FROM PURGATORY. He played a character called Fish. This episode was written by Harlan Ellison, and stars James Caan and Walter Koeing. FYI: As I write this, the show has still NOT been released on legit region one DVD.

Zalman King did his own thing. He was a leader, not a follower, and I wonder if he knew how many people he had influenced... You are missed, Mr. King.....
