Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!

Released in late Summer of 1965 but still playing in 1966, Russ Meyer's oddly titled FASTER, PUSSYCAT! KILL! KILL! was a new type of movie. It was an exploitation movie but hardly the same as standard fare. It was explicit but it was hardly pornography. It was funny and bizarrely shot but with odd sensibilites and violence. Meyer would carve a niche for himself and his big-breasted heroines throughout the sixties and seventies that even the rise of more explicitness in film could not stop. It's said that he made a fortune more off of his cult films with the coming of video!
