Hollywood movie star (and future ace cabinet maker) George Montgomery spent much of the early 1960s trying to establish himself as a producer/director. Like most of his directorial efforts, Guerillas in Pink Lace was lensed in the Philippines and suffers from cheesy production values, but all in all has of few isolated moments of genuine merit. The titular guerillas are not cross-dressers but women, a group of showgirls stranded in Manila at the time of the 1941 Japanese invasion. Barely escaping with their lives, the girls take to the hills, where they matriculate into A-number-one freedom fighters. Outside of Montgomery, who also stars, the biggest "name" connected with Guerillas in Pink Lace is Joan Shawlee, a brassy-blonde actress best known for her comedy work with Abbott and Costello and Billy Wilder.
