Gregory Harrison in “For Ladies Only”

I have been watching some Trapper John MD lately, it is a great show that if you haven’t, you should really check out. One of the actors on the show is Gregory Harrison who plays Dr. George Alonzo ‘Gonzo’ Gates. Harrison has acting resume longer than most and while I mostly remember him for his work on Trapper John I also remember my sisters renting a movie called “For Ladies Only”.

When I tried to watch it with them, they sent me out of the room very abruptly. Which led me to believe that the film was more adult that it actually was. It was many years later, while working in a video store, that I would see a copy of the VHS and discover that it was a made-for-TV movie from 1981 and not the smut my sisters’ actions made it seem like. I guess they were just embarrassed to be watching male strippers in front of their little brother or maybe they were just taking the title of the film literally.
