Russ Meyer R.I.P.
I had called Tura Satana tonight to let her know the Black Dog Press book of Harold Lloyd’s 3-D nudes was coming out soon (Bruce Goldstein showed some of Harold’s slides last night at the Film Forum screening of the 3-D film Gorilla at Large) and she called me back (at 5:30 am…) to let me know Russ had passed away on Saturday at age 82.
There will be a private service this Friday and Ms. Satana will be there.
Next year is the 40th anniversary of Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!
Russ Meyer – March 1, 1922 to September 18, 2004.
