“Three of the biggest and bustiest Russ Meyer stars make a comeback in The Double-D Avenger, the first in a series of sexy action-comedy feature films by William Winckler Productions. Big, busty Chastity Knott must use her new amazing abilities as the super-stacked costumed crime fighter to stop villainous bikini bar owner Al Purplewood and his sexy, murderous strippers.” (courtesy IMDB)
Boy, are you in for a real treat this week! The 2001 superhero send-up The Double-D Avenger (2001), produced and directed by my old friend Bill Winckler, and starring three of cult cinema’s – ahem – biggest stars. Kitten Natividad, Raven De La Croix, and Haji all hail from the production house of director Russ Meyer, in such classics as Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (1965), Motor Psycho (1965), Beneath The Valley Of The Ultra-Vixens (1979), and Up! (1976) – definitely not to be confused with the 2009 Pixar production. Prepare to be bombarded by breasts in The Double-D Avenger!
I hope you enjoy The Double-D Avenger as much as I do. The Double-D Avenger is the brainfart, er, brainchild of my good friend and party animal, Bill Winckler, a writer-producer in Hollywood who got tired of pitching movies to studios and decided to pitch them to the wind instead. One day he just took all his money out of the bank, pulled three of Russ Meyer’s bosom buddies out of retirement, and built a movie around them that would be pretty much based on the concept that “If the breasts are big enough, they will come.” Big, busty Chastity Knott (Kitten Natividad) must use her new amazing abilities as the super-stacked costumed crime fighter, The Double-D Avenger, to stop villainous bikini-bar owner Al Purplewood (G. Larry Butler) and his sexy, murderous strippers, played with relish by Haji, Mimma Mariucci, and Sheri Dawn Thomas.
Kitten Natividad, possessor of two of the most famous breasts in the western world, is the Double-D Avenger, tossing off knocker jokes faster than the late, great Benny Hill. Kitten’s extraordinary talents could be seen not only in Russ Meyer’s Up! and Beneath The Valley Of The Ultra-Vixens, but also in more legitimate films such as The New Centurions (1972), My Tutor (1983), Another 48 Hours (1990), and both Flying High! (1980 & 1982) films – that’s Airplane! to all you damned yankees out there. Not so legitimate films include John Holmes And The All-Star Sex Queens (1980), Deep Jaws (1976), Let’s Talk Sex (1983), Taking It Off (1985), Bodacious Ta-Tas (1984), Thanks For The Mammories (1987), Zombie Ninja Gangbangers (1997), Fresh Tits Of Bel Air (1992), Titillation III (1991), Big Busty III (1983), Wild Wild Chest III (1996), Electric Blue XI (1984), and The New Adventures Of Bean Baxter (1987).
Joining Kitten are Raven De La Croix, also from Russ Meyer’s Up! and Haji, who starred in the classic cult films Faster Pussycat Kill Kill, Motor Psycho, Supervixens (1975) and Ilsa, Harem Keeper Of The Oil Sheiks (1976). The Double-D Avenger’s arch enemies, Hydra Heffer, Pirate Juggs and Ooga Boobies, haven’t counted on Kitten’s double-whoppers, which allow her to dispatch the stripper-squad with the kind of booby-traps not seen since Chesty Morgan starred in Deadly Weapons (1974). I’m sure that’s more than enough information, and the last thing I want to do is get between you and an enormous pair of breasts – right?
The Double-D Avenger may not be a European art film shot in the style of Francois Truffaut, but where else are you going to find a duel to the death with electric dildos? This is also the first movie in which Raven De La Croix snorts like a pig, and the only movie in which my dear old friend, the late great Forrest J. Ackerman, brilliantly enunciates the immortal words “Humongous Hooters!” And talking of tawdry tourist traps, step up to Hollywood’s all you can eat buffet and fill your plate with public domain potato salad next week for…Horror News! Toodles!
