I Want To Find Out More About Sweet Suzy

sweetsuzy-fromscott

This movie poster of
Sweet Suzy comes from my friend Scott. I think it's a really cool poster. I've never seen this trashy Russ Meyer flick before. I did look it up to find out more about it. The film, also called Black Snake, was released in 1973. I saw it described as Russ Meyer meets Blaxploitation meets the Ilsa movies. The film is centered on the cruel mistress of a colonial slave owning plantation named Lady Susan. She dominates both the black and white men on the island. Lady Susan was played by Anouska Hempel. I'm intrigued now to see what else I can dig up about this movie. Has anybody here seen it? The movie definitely elicits some strong reaction from people, most of it not that good.

David Warbeck has a lead role but I don't much else about it. Never saw this particular Russ Meyer movie, but as one sheets go - it gets my attention. Hope your Tuesday is better all around.

Thanks Scott. I love this poster. It really gets my attention. Work went alright. I'm looking into some other things. I'm hoping I can figure something else out. The stress and worry there is killing me.

This still stands as one of the only Russ Meyer films that I haven't seen...yet. You're right though, most reviews are pretty harsh. Guess I'll judge for myself one day.

Wow, Suzy sure wore a very HOT pants!
Keith, so sorry you had a bad day...hope you won't lose it dear!
Tomorrow will be better...-b o s s is a 4 letter word, they say ;)

K and S said...

Wow, this is great. They don't make posters like this anymore.

Dooder City said...

Nice ass. Is that ok if I say 'ass' on your blog?

Hope all is well Keith:)

Keith said...

Hey Rev. This is one of the only films of his I haven't seen either. I really didn't see any good reviews about it at all. Oh well. I'd still like to try to see it.

Keith said...

Hey Lenore. Thanks. I appreciate that. I'm looking for another job. Wish me luck. It's hard in this economy. He's been a nightmare for the last 18 months. I just feel like I'm walking on egg shells now.

Keith said...

Hey K&S. I love this poster. They definitely don't make them like this anymore.

Keith said...

Hey Deana. You can say ass. I think she's got a great ass.

Nancy Sinatra Fan said...

I'll agree that she does have a nice ass. I like the poster.

Keith said...

Thanks Phoebe. Now I just want to see that ass in the actual movie.

Hmm interesting. Speaking of old movies, have you seen the fly? it was made in the 80's... I wanna see it but I heard it was nasty, and I don't like grostest movies.. So I thought I'd ask you if you've seen it!!

Yeah honestly all festivals are the same lol! Spend spend spend

Gabbi said...

Never seen it but it looks/sounds like a riot! If you find more please do pass on... :)

LENORENEVERMORE said...

Thank you Keith,
So sorry to hear that you have to look for a new job dear. When one door closes, I'm sure another will open & a better one I'm sure!
Best wishes!!!

Keith said...

Hey Wiec. I've seen quite a few of Russ Meyer's movies, but I've never seen this one. The poster alone makes me wanna check it out.

Keith said...

Thanks Monika. I'm glad you liked the poster. I appreciate your stopping by and commenting.

Keith said...

Hey Pop. Thanks. I saw The Fly. There's the original and then there's the remake done in the 80's. I'm old enough that I saw the remake when it came out. I didn't find it gross, but some people might find his transformation yucky. I would recommend it.

Keith said...

Hey Gabbi. Thanks. Glad you feel that way. If I find any more things from this, I definitely plan to post them.

Keith said...

Hey Lenore. Thanks. I have put in an application at another place. My sis told me about it. We'll see what happens. In the meantime I'm just going to have to watch my back at my current job.

Keith said...

Hey Nadia. Thanks. You know. I can definitely seem some Bardot there.

Mrs. M. said...

wow they dont even offer that movie on Netflix. it must be a difficult one to find! Sadly i dont know anything about the flick or Suzy, but i would venture to say that she is a fan of orange.

Keith said...

Hey Mrs. M, Yeah, I already looked to see if they had this film on Netflix. No luck. I was disappointed in that. They don't have much in the way of Russ Meyer flicks.

This is one I have never been too interested in seeing, probably the bottom of my RM pile.

I have seen some RM movies on DVD from the UK that are region free, but still PAL format. Typically they are double-feature discs too. My cheapo Phillips DVD player worked fine with the PAL, but your mileage may vary.

Dusty said...

H-m-m-m, I haven't seen this one yet (Russ Meyers' Sweet Suzy). I'm still trying to get through viewing Russ Meyers' Black Snake. They say third time is the charm, right? I've gotta hunt this one down.

Keith said...

Hey Darius. Thanks. I've heard nothing but bad stuff about this one. I hadn't even heard of it until my friend Scott sent me this poster. I've enjoyed the Russ Meyer movies I've seen.

Keith said...

Hey Dusty. Thanks. I don't think I've found a single person yet who has seen it. The reviews I've seen online from others are very negative on it.
