Russ Meyer: Don't Forget Your Audience

Russ Meyer is dead. After his one serious attempt at film-making flopped, he told Roger Ebert:

“I made the mistake of reading my reviews. What the public wants are big laughs and big tits and lots of ‘em. Lucky for me that’s what I like, too.”

Another quote:

He once told [Ebert] there was no such thing as a sex scene that couldn’t be improved by cutaways to Demolition Derby or rocket launches.
