this day in history 1922

He Had His Knockers

Both film and filth fans have a very special reason to celebrate March 21st. It was on this day in 1922 that Russ Meyer, one of the leading pioneers of sexploitation and films featuring ladies on the buxom end of the spectrum, was born. His classics include Faster Pussycat Kill Kill, Mondo Topless and Beyond the Valley of the Dolls. Some think of him as a genius, others as just a dirty old man with a boob fixation.
