About this deal

If they don’t have the funds to do a proper film restoration, they should license the films to someone who has. In truth, that’s all the house was: a film studio hangar combined with a personal shrine, crammed with film making equipment, such as his revered editing machine and boxes of artifacts. The single greatest thing about this picture, though, is the phenomenal narration by Stuart Lancaster, written with Meyer's signature verbosity (aided in great part, I think, by Roger Ebert's screenwriting). Currently you are able to watch "Beneath the Valley of the Ultra-Vixens" streaming on Plex for free. So terrified of anyone blinking on his watch, his films are cross cut in a dizzying manner, presaging the modern action films of a John Woo or Michael Bay.

Levonna becomes frustrated, so she does what any woman would do - gets herself a wig, learns Spanish and pretends to be a Mexican dancer to try and change Lamar's sex preferences. If I’m remembering correctly, someone in the Meyer biography said that Janice Cowart thinks Meyer’s films are sleazy and sees no value in them. I’d heard stories of how Russ would wheel it outside to the swimming pool to work on his latest movie, or disappear for weeks at a time while cutting together his footage. Beneath the Valley of the Ultra-Vixens (1979) Believe it or not even in Smalltown USA there are still people who are unfulfilled and unrelieved in the midst of plenty. After dropping him off at the radio station (a power station), Lavonia goes home and has sex once again with the truck driver.I don’t understand why they have zero interest in doing anything with the name Russ Meyer and his work. It’ll probably be bulldozered and replaced with a new construction – no one is interested in this type of home anymore. I’d heard the stories of manipulation and neglect from some who’d been close to Russ, and Janice was frequently painted as the villain.

I had seen pictures of the property dating back to when Russ first bought it, usually with his ubiquitous RM Films van parked out in front. Levonna and Lamar could have the perfect relationship if it were not Lamar's obsession with rear entry. Now, it all looks rather tame; when compared with some of the 'nasty' material around today, There was a degree of 'innocence' with Russ Meyer's style. The auction was over in minutes and a few weeks later, together with a selection of editing splicers, analog light meters, memorabilia, photographs, and intriguingly, several reels of undeveloped film, it was delivered to my Brooklyn home. The homosexual professional, the self-defeating redneck and the two-faced nature of radio/TV evangelism all get a thorough walloping in this film.

This is a Russ Meyers film, his final full length film as director and as usual his fascination for the female form is in abundance.

The movie is based in a small town USA and centers around the married couple of Lammar and Levonna and the sexual frustration of Levonna, here on in ensues a fantastic comedy soft porn romp in which the couple meet various colourful charactors along the journey to help cure Lammar's bedroom leanings, ending up in the fantastic 'Church of Rio Dio Radio' where in lies Eufaula Roop, who has to be seen to be believed. Over 40 years had passed since Russ shot scenes there, but the place was unchanged, and still a medical and dental center.

Nonetheless the impeccable Kitten Natividad and the often unmentioned, but still unforgettable Ann Marie stay true to Meyer fashion and manage to suck in the viewer while Meyer dishes out social taboos and common problems associated with the modern couple. I mean, we shot inside, and we'd forgo lunch and have sex–wonderful, riotous, noisy sex… laughing and scratching. When Lamar tells her he wants to be saved, she sends him to her cleansing room (a bathroom) while she changes clothes.
