Screening in 35mm as part of the series BIG BROADS AND MEEK MEN: THE FILMS OF RUSS MEYER.

Hitler-esque renegade-ex-Nazi-in-hiding Adolf Schwartz is murdered in his Northern Californian castle when someone drops a frenzied piranha into his bathtub while he’s in it, but the film quickly turns its attention away from the resulting whodunit and instead tracks the sexploits of Margo Winchester (Raven de la Croix), who is new to town and quickly involves herself with pretty much every local man.

Though he wasn’t responsible for the screenplay as a whole, the great Roger Ebert helped write the dialogue for Kitten Natividad’s character, who functions as a kind of Greek chorus, in Russ Meyer’s penultimate film.

A murder mystery à la Meyer. This film is completely insane.
