Movie of the Week: Faster Pussycat Kill, Kill!

"The best movie ever made, and possibly better than any movie that will ever be made."- John Waters
Three strippers seeking thrills encounter a young couple in the desert. After dispatching the boyfriend, they take the girl hostage and begin scheming on a crippled old man living with his two sons in the desert, reputedly hiding a tidy sum of cash. They become houseguests of the old man and try and seduce the sons in an attempt to locate the money, not realizing that the old man has a few sinister intentions of his own.

"Superwomen! Belted, buckled and booted!"
"Russ Meyer's ode to the violence in women"
"Go-Go For a Wild Ride With the ACTION GIRLS!"

Fun Trivia:
Lead actress Tura Satana, legally owns her likeness and image. So, whenever Russ Meyer wanted to change the artwork or re-release the project, he had to get her permission and sometimes pay her all over again.

After Varla cuts the fence and gets back into her car, look at the rear side window. Crew member with hat is briefly visible in the reflection.

Fun Quotes:
The Old Man: You girls a bunch of nudists or are you just short of clothes?

Billie: I'm of legal age for whiskey, voting and loving. Now the next election is two years away, and my love life ain't getting much better, so how about some of that one-hundred-percent!

Tommy: What's your point?
Varla: It's of no return, and you've reached it!

The Old Man: Women! They let 'em vote, smoke and drive - even put 'em in pants! And what happens? A Democrat for president!

Narrator: Ladies and gentlemen - welcome to violence!

Tura Satana on the lost art of burlesque dancing:
"When I was dancing burlesque was an art - classy and elegant and requiring talent. I got out of it when it started to become raunchy and lost the art. Now they call it nude dancing, but its plain old pornography as far as I'm concerned. They do things on stage that I wouldn't have even thought of doing."
