Russ Meyer's Supervixens (1975): The notorious murder scene

Posted: Oct 15, 2011

To pay tribute to Charles Napier, character actor extraordinaire and Russ Meyer's ultimate Alpha Male, here is his career-saving moment, the sequence which earned Napier personal congratulations from Alfred Hitchcock: the grisly, brutal murder of Super Angel (Shari Eubank) by SOB cop Harry Sledge (Napier) on account of her mocking his impotence. Surely one of the nastiest scenes ever, made tolerable by its cartoonishness and excess. RIP, Napier. Say "Hi" to RM on our behalf.
