Sun-Times critic Roger Ebert hosts a tribute to the “King of the Nudies,” one of the all-time masters of locker-room humor as well as one of the most stylistically distinctive and technically adroit independent filmmakers America has produced. Parlaying his experience as a World War II combat cameraman and a Playboy photographer into a series of wildly funny exploitation films, Meyer became one of the most successful backroom operators in film history (made for $76,000, Vixen returned some $6 million) until his soft-core approach was overtaken by humorless, hard-core competition in the 70s. Clips from the Meyer oeuvre, which includes such delirious titles as Europe in the Raw, Mondo Topless, Motor Psycho, and Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!, will be shown. (DK
