Russ Meyer Week: Up! Hitler's Torture Chamber

Meyer, as a World War II vet, had a serious issue with Hitler and Nazis. In Up!, the plot revolves around the murder of Adolph Hitler, who is alive and living under the name Swartz in California. He is into S&M, and has a torture room with a Paul (the male lead) as a pilgrim father/torturer and his assistants; "Head Person" (Candy Samples as Mary Gavin), "The Ethiopian Chef" (Elaine Collins), and "Limehouse" (Su Ling). After Hitler is tortured by Paul, and handled by the three women, he pays Paul extra to sodomize him. Tomorrow: Raven de la Croix as Margot Winchester.

Here are some screen grabs:

Head Person

The Ethiopian Chef

Limehouse

Great shots. This is one of his films I've never seen though. I've always wanted to though. It sounds really cool.
