Doris Wishman (1912 -- 2002) was an American exploitation director most well-known for making trashy low-budget productions starring well-endowed women. She began her career making modest nudist films in the early 1960s, but soon became a prolific director of sexy thrillers, comedies and horror movies, all in a field that was predominately male. After her career faded out in the late '70s, she eventually returned to directing late in life after her work developed a serious cult following.
