American title: COCO BEACH BED RACE
also known as BIKINI BEACH BED RACE and THE SEX PUPPETS
starring Dana Plato · Daniel Barquet · Nick Santa Maria · Mathew Marko
· Kristin Schroll · Ron Jeremy
an odd little film about an equally odd college/nerd 'sport'
from the early '90s... bed racing (the art of turning a bed frame into
a race vehicle). Dana Plato is poor-little-rich-girl J.D., a champion
boat racer and gearhead, who agrees to help a group of geek frat boys
build their mobil-bed and win the race. But there's danger ahead when
the Mafia gets involved in skewing the odds.
Plato had played Kimberly Drummond in the TV hit sitcom Diff'rent
Strokes (1978-88). After the series ended for her, she made this
unlikely film with porn star Ron Jeremy. At the same time, Dana fell
on hard times, turning to weird kicks and hard drugs. She was arrested
the same year for robbing a video store in Las Vegas (but was put on
probation) and then the following year Dana was arrested again for forging
a drug prescription. In 1998, she became serious about jump-starting
her stalled career and made the controversial lesbian shocker KISS.
Shortly after its release, Dana and her boyfriend went to her parent's
house in Oklahoma for Mother's Day weekend. On Saturday May 8, 1999,
Ms Plato was dead at age 34 from a painkiller overdose. A few days later,
the coroner ruled her death suicide due to the inordinate amount of
drugs in her body.
