an american icon

The puritans among us can deny the obvious and they can gets their undies in a wad about it, but the truth remains: SEX SELLS. Russ Meyer knew that fact and he became rich and famous making soft-core titty-movies that people flocked to see. Russ died at the age of 82 last Saturday.

I remember his movies well. I saw 'em in theaters and drive-ins. He surely did know how to work nekkid titties into his screenplays. I sprang many a boner watching his cinematic classics in my randy youth. He surely knew how to grab MY attention back then.

My, how times change. From Russ Meyer movies to hard-core, XXX porn on my cable pay-for-view channels in a little more than 30 years. By comparison, Russ seems pretty tame today.

But he was a trailblazer in his prime.


By God, Beneath the Valley of the Supervixens was the best movie ever made!
Meyers was a god. I didn't know he'd died.
