Harry (a corrupt sheriff) and his Chicano deputy hunt an Apache who is about to go to the authorities with the news Harry is smuggling marijuana. Harry makes love to Raquel (a prostitute) and Cherry (a nurse). The women also has an erotic encounter between themselves. Harry’s boss gets it off with Raquel and Cherry, too. Uschi Digard romps around the desert naked.
This Russ Meyer classic exploitation film was his last independent movie before 20th Century Fox lured him to Hollywood, to make his next film, Beyond the Valley of the Dolls (1970). The trailer described its exciting premise, with “hot cars, blazing guns and beautiful women.”
It was another bosomania action tale of sex-crazed individuals in an Arizona-Mexico border town, featuring a corrupt sheriff (Charles Napier as Harry), drug-dealing and pot smuggling, shoot-outs, beatings and car-crashes. Harry’s crime partner was the powerful but bed-ridden Mr. Franklin (Franklin H. Bolger). It was also noted, typical for a Meyer fantasy erotic film, for its love triangle between Harry, Cherry, and Raquel, including lesbianism.
The female characters were:
Cherry (Linda Ashton), a buxom British nurse, town sheriff Harry’s girlfriend
Raquel (Larissa Ely), a big-breasted blonde prostitute employed by Mr. Franklin
Millie (Michelle Grand), an African-American
Statuesque and well-endowed Uschi Digard (aka Astrid Lillimoor) also starred as the German-speaking Native American ghost Soul, who posed nude against various desert locations, sometimes with an Apache feather headdress.
Director: Russ Meyer
