Movie Info

In this Russ Meyer production, Vixen (Erica Gavin) is unable to control her insatiable appetite for sex. Her husband Tom (Garth Pillsbury) is unable to satisfy her, so in the beginning scene she is seen coupling with a Mountie. She moves on to various other partners, including a married couple on vacation at a dude ranch, her brother, a black airplane hijacker and another woman. Once and a while, Vixen makes time for her husband's amorous requests, but there probably isn't enough film in the world to chronicle her sex-crazed conquests. In the '60's, Meyer was quick to denounce the recent four-category rating system of films that branded his films with an "X" after the release of this feature. Still, the rating system of G, PG, R, and X would remain until 1997, and would find Meyer still denouncing the system of ratings as forced censorship and the choking of artistic freedom.

  • Stands as a prime example of Meyer's infantile and sometimes disarmingly protean perversity.

  • The film that showed Meyer to have the most dynamic editing style in American cinema, and took him from nudie king to national monument via the most outrageous exploitation of bosom buddydom ever.

  • Vixen is the best film to date in that uniquely American genre, the skin-flick... In a field filled with cheap, dreary productions, Meyer is the best craftsman and the only artist.

  • Russ Meyer's 1968 skin-flick is a hilarious, stylistically adroit compendium of middle-American preoccupations: breasts, fishing, anticommunism.

  • A furiously inspired anthology of lusty American fixations
