Well 'Mondo Topless' and 'Up!' are out on DVD, but not the classics 'Bayond The Valley of The Dolls' or 'Faster Pussycat Kill! Kill!' But soon, according to Amazon they are planned. Please order some Russ Meyer.

They're coming, they're coming -- I was talking to the Troma people myself at the SD Comic Con...we've got some on order which will be arriving this week (anybody wanna help us unload these? ;-) so one way or the other, these titles will be at GreenCine soon enough. I wonder if Roger Ebert is the hang up on "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls" -- it's still beyond me that he had anything to do with that movie, let alone script it.

dennis!

Russ Meyer and Roger Ebert are Chicago homeboys from way back when. And their relationship I think helps explain why Roger Ebert gives enthusiastic thumbs-up to any movie with J-Lo in it (e.g. Anaconda, The Cell). Not that I don't appreciate her, um, talents. . . .

Ebert wrote about Beyond the Valley of the Dolls in 2001(http://www.suntimes.com/ebert/ebert_reviews/1997/08/081101.html) and doesn't seem embarrassed or ashamed, so that is probably not why it isn't available on DVD. My guess is that the DVD wouldn't make as much money for 20th Century Fox as other titles that have priority in their catalogue. And they are probably embarassed of it. Weenies.

A bunch of the actors from BVD have a website here with a petition (and a reference to the black sperm of their vengance, of course :) http://www.beyondthevalleyofthedolls.com/theletter.html

Other remarkable screenplays by Roger Ebert include Beneath the Valley of the Ultra-Vixens (as R. Hyde) and Up! (as Reinhold Timme).

Ebert wrote about Beyond again because it is playing at the Music Box in Chicago through Thursday.

Holy cow - I did not know he wrote Up! That opening scene with Hitler, I would have bet good money that was 100% Meyer!
I love the fact that Ebert is a household name and is responsible for such exploitation classics :)

GC got some more Russ Meyer in a few weeks ago... it's still not everything, but it's more! Although, for some reason, I'm not sure if this list is telling us everything that IS available...
