Happy Birthday Russ Meyer (March 21, 1922 – September 18, 2004)
A quick sketch of legendary film director, producer, screenwriter, cinematographer, film editor, actor, photographer and breast man Russell Albion Meyer who was born March 21, 1922. Falsely labeled a pornographer, Russ is actually a true auteur who's films are loaded with surrealism, camp humor, satire, stupid men and bright bountiful Buxotic women,
Russ Meyer often cited a quotation directed at him by Charles H Keating Jr. (a key member of the President's Commission on Obscenity and Pornography):"More than anyone else in his time, Russ Meyer was responsible for the decay of values in American society." Russ would add "I was glad to do it." Indeed the world is a better place that he did it.
