Biography

From BBC Obit - “Meyer - nicknamed King Leer - produced, directed, wrote, edited and shot over 20 films, including the 1965 cult hit Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!

His trademarks were violence and busty women, though by modern standards his films featured little graphic sex.

His biggest success was 1970’s Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, which Meyer co-wrote with film critic Roger Ebert.

Born in Oakland, California in March 1922, Russell Albion Meyer got his start in film when his mother, a nurse, gave him an 8mm camera.

During World War II he made training films with the Army Signal Corps and shot newsreels in France and Germany.

He then turned his hand to photography, shooting some of the earliest Playboy centrefolds.

He made his film debut in 1959 with The Immoral Mr Teas, one of the first “nudies” - soft-core sex films - to turn a profit.

He sealed his reputation with low-budget, black-and-white titles such as Lorna, Mudhoney and Motor Psycho.”
