Russ Meyer, the legendary sexploitation auteur who made T&A an art form in such films as "The Immoral Mr. Teas", "Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!", and "Supervixens", died this weekend at age 82. If there's a heaven, we expect it to look a lot like this promo shot for "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls" - and we expect Russ to be there. Rest in peace.
