Bringing his anecdote-and-action-packed biographical style to the ultimate renegade of popular culture, Jimmy McDonough offers a wild portrait of Russ Meyer, the director, writer, producer and commando movie-making force behind such sexploitation classics as "Faster", "Pussycat! Kill! Kill!" and "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls". Beginning in 1959, this former combat photographer put his personal sexual obsessions (mostly involving women with huge breasts) on screen, creating a body of work that has influenced a legion of rock bands, filmmakers and even the occasional feminist. Rich with wicked observations and memories from Meyer's friends, lovers, leading ladies, fellow filmmakers and fans, "Big Bosoms and Square Jaws" tells the full story of Meyer's life and career: it is a story of greed, lust and the American way. It will thrill film fans and appeal to anyone who likes a good yarn with plenty of sex, booze and rock 'n' roll.
