Biography

New York City, New York, USA
Gus Trikonis was a very efficient and underrated director of delightfully down'n'dirty '70s drive-in low-budget exploitation fare. Born on November 21, 1937, in New York City, Trikonis began his show business career as both an actor and a dancer in Broadway plays and movies. His most popular film role was as Indio in the magnificent musical classic West Side Story (1961). He made his debut as director in 1969 with the biker flick Five the Hard Way (1969), following it with the pleasingly silly soft-core romp The Student Body (1976) and the marvelously lively psycho trash gem The Swinging Barmaids (1975).
