King Leer: Russ Meyer part 2

Honey's hero


His first feature film, The Immoral Mr Teas, in which the lead cycles around Oakland delivering false teeth and looking through the clothes of women with his x-ray vision, was shot in four days at the cost of $24,000. It grossed one million dollars. Meyer made 25 movies in total, all of which he wrote, directed and edited himself. He was also solely responsible for the casting of the double-F breasted starlets with names like Melissa Mounds, Candy Samples, Kitten Natividad, and Foxy Lae. His most famous film is Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! about three go-go dancers who go on a killing spree. Feminists love Meyer because all his women are super-vixens and his men are wimpy. But Meyer just loves big breasts, believing that “a woman's place is primarily in the kitchen and the bath and the bedroom. Not necessarily in that order."

Russ Meyer died on 23rd September 2004, aged 82
