Supvervixens

Madrid, Spain: RM Films International, 1986. Original Spanish one-sheet poster for the 1986 release of the 1975 US film. Features buxom Christy Hartburg, who starred as SuperLorna. Hartburg, along with Kitten Natividad and Uschi Digard, has become one of the more recognizable faces of Russ Meyer filmdom, even though this was her only film.

Clint (Pitts) operates a small-town gas station, where he is constantly harassed by his wife SuperAngel (Eubank). On one occasion, the police are called, and Harry (Napier) arrives and is promptly seduced by SuperAngel, however his impotence becomes him. Stricken by SuperAngel's taunts, Harry murders her in a rather gruesome bathtub scene, and pins the act on Clint. On the lam, Clint meets a farmer with a heyper-sexual Austrian mail-order bride named SuperSoul (Digard). In keeping with director Meyer's powerful female roles, SuperSoul rapes Clint a few times, notably in a barn, where the farmer discovers his wife's indiscretions. Clint meets up with SuperVixen (Eubank), an inexplicable reincarnation of SuperAngel, and the two fall in love. Harry is, however, still hot on the trail.

Meyer's successful return to independent filmmaking, after the big-budget "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls" (1970) and the unfortunate films, "The Seven Minutes" (1971) and "Black Snake" (1973). Arguably the most entertaining Meyer project, with all the trademarks present: strong sexual women, impotent men, and healthy doses of sex, violence, and nudity, with a nod to the desert violence of Italian Euro Westerns of the 1960s.

Shot on location in Arizona, California, and New Mexico.
