Before They Were Stars: Kevin Costner in “Sizzle Beach U.S.A.”

Sizzle Beach U.S.A. is one of those special films which remains sitting on a shelf for years until one of its actors becomes a huge star, finally prompting the movie to see the light of day. Such was the case with a raunchy 1981 comedy named Malibu Hot Summer, which happened to feature the screen debut of a young Kevin Costner. Lo and behold, once Mr. Costner found stardom, the film was retitled¬†Sizzle Beach U.S.A. and released in 1986. Believe it or not, it was acquired and re-released by Troma Entertainment, and I’m sure Kevin Costner is overjoyed to know that he got his start in a Troma film.
