MONSTER AND THE STRIPPER (the exotic ones) (1968 U.S.) D/W/P: RON ORMOND P: JUNE ORMOND
In what`s basically a burlesque re-write of KING KONG, a Louisiana "swamp thing" (rockabilly singer Sleepy La Beef, looking awesome) is captured to be part of a New Orleans strip club attraction, and mayhem ensues. The monster beating a guy to death with his own arm and flaming nipple tassle twirlers are highlights. But everything about this exquisitely padded out and time-wasting Ormond family production (Ron, June and son Tim all have parts) is utterly charming, with an unique sense of humour (and lots of exotic dancing). The most disgusting scene involves not gore, but spitoon torture! Sadly, it was the last of the Ormonds` exploitation pictures, but fear not as they continued to deliver the goods with twisted Christian propaganda pictures, beginning with IF FOOTMEN TIRE YOU, WHAT WILL HORSES DO?
