Sheepshead Bites dug up this “historic gem” of a 1940s film about the first “lady lifeguards” of Manhattan Beach in the Library of Congress Prelinger Archive. Presumably the ladies were called in to serve during war time, when able-bodied men were scarce. We cannot improve on the New York Times’ description of the film, which called it “a gently leering 10-minute tour de force of visual double-entendre and soul-stirring call-of-duty gee-whiz.”
