This quintessential sex comedy – written by famed movie critic Roger Ebert under the pseudonym “R Hyde” – was Russ Meyer’s last movie as director, and it’s all here: insatiable mega-busty women, religion, necrophilia, comic violence, impotent bumbling men, chainsaws and Nazi Martin Bormann (Henry Rowland) in a coffin.
The plot revolves around stripper Lavonia Langusta (Francesca “Kitten” Natividad, who is naked throughout practically the entire movie) and her attempts to steer her handsome but thick-headed husband Lamar Shedd (Ken Kerr) away from his fetish for rear entry.
Jiggling Ann Marie and Uschi Digard are along for the roller coaster ride through Meyer’s lusty Small Town USA landscape (the film is set in the desert community of Rio Dio, Texas).
Lavonia calls herself Lola when she strips at The Other Ball. Lamar works for a huge black woman named Junkyard Sal (June Mack). Stuart Lancaster is the narrator.
There’s also a garbage driver called Mr Peterbuilt (Pat Wright), a travelling salesman named Semper Fidelis (Michael Finn) and a gay dentist-cum-marriage counsellor called Asa Lavender (Robert Pearson).
The girls sport equally interesting names, such as Eufaula Roop (a DJ at a religious radio station) and a nurse called Flovilla Thatch (Sharon Hill).
The director plays himself in this satirical semi-autobiography, which has a strong moral code at its soft-core centre.
