FASTER, PUSSY CAT! KILL KILL! (1965)


Sex! Drugs! and Rock and Roll!
or If You Remember the 60's You Weren't Really There Week
(Post 2 of 7)

Plot synopsis: Three go-go dancers kill a guy in the desert, kidnap his girl friend and begin a quest for loot from a creepy old man and his oddball family.

It's a 60's kind of quote: Opening narration: "Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to violence, the word and the act. While violence cloaks itself in a plethora of disguises, its favorite mantle still remains... sex. Violence devours all it touches, its voracious appetite rarely fulfilled. Yet violence doesn't only destroy, it creates and molds as well. Let's examine closely then this dangerously evil creation, this new breed encased and contained within the supple skin of woman. The softness is there, the unmistakable smell of female, the surface shiny and silken, the body yielding yet wanton. But a word of caution: handle with care and don't drop your guard. This rapacious new breed prowls both alone and in packs, operating at any level, any time, anywhere, and with anybody. Who are they? One might be your secretary, your doctor's receptionist... or a dancer in a go-go club!"

Iconic 60's shot: The ladies...either causing mayhem, posing for the camera or basically just standing around looking hot.

Sex: Of couse! It's a Russ Meyer film! The three go-go dancers, and Linda their bikini clad-kindnapee, provide plenty of sex appeal. Though the real star of the show is the catlike and ample bosomed Tura Satana (pictured below.)

Drugs: The only drug use I see is the use of "knockout pills" on Linda.

Rock and Roll: The theme song Faster Pussycat! by the Bostweeds.
