Video Notes:
In FASTER, PUSSYCAT! KILL! KILL!, a trio of drag-racing daredevil go-go girls get tough in the desert when a smart-alecky guy challenges their driving prowess--not a smart move. Varla (Tura Satana), Billie (Lori Williams), and Rosie (Haji) are three fed-up go-go dancers who drive out into the California desert to let off some steam. When they encounter squeaky clean couple Tommy (Ray Barlow) and Linda (Sue Bernard), also out for a desert joyride, the girls' invitation to drag race turns ugly. After a fistfight, Varla leaves Tommy for dead and kidnaps Linda. The three dangerous beauties then catch word of a feeble old man (Stuart Lancaster) out in the desert who is reportedly sitting on a large amount of money, and they set out to beat it out of him and his two sons. FASTER, PUSSYCAT!, though made for the raincoat crowd in the mid-1960s, has since transcended its humble origins to become a beloved cult classic. While treading territory similar to MOTORPSYCHO, director Russ Meyer's previous film, PUSSYCAT! turns the convention on its ear with what is possibly the toughest (and most glamorous) trio of femme fatales ever to hit the screen. As Varla, the iconic Satana creates a character who appears to literally fear nothing. While not Meyer's most financially successful film, it's most likely the one (along with 1970's BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS) that he will be remembered for.
