Time For More Uschi Digard!
As a fan of cult cinema, I have an appreciation for the Actresses who starred in all kinds of films in the 70’s. It was a wild time for cult movies and Uschi Digard was one of the greatest exploitation Actresses of that time, thanks to her roles in movies like these:
She appeared in dozens of films, and was known for – well, let’s let her tell you:
“When I started to develop at 11 I had to strap myself in, because it wasn’t seemly to have breasts, and we all wore uniforms. By age 15 I was a 40DD.”
Yes, Uschi Digard’s career includes lots of nude scenes and small roles that prominently featured one aspect of her personality:
Digard was born in Sweden. At 16 she left home, worked as a translator for the jewelry trade, became a model and was “discovered” by legendary filmmaker Russ Meyer.
Her first film for Meyer led to many more roles big and small, including this one I just discovered:
Uschi Is “The Midnight Graduate!”
One of my exploitation friends shared this poster, one of Digard’s films from the early 70’s…the film tells the story of a young woman’s odyssey in self discovery, as she finds herself “among the ladies” in Los Angeles’ steamy sexual underbelly.
Among her co-stars in the film is Kathy Hilton, who also starred in a number of cult films and is now most wellknown as the Mother of Paris and Nicki…
You can find this movie to watch online at several free streaming sites – I just thought the poster was provocative, and of course, I like Uschi!
Uschi’s Real First Name!
Ready for this? The Actress ays now that “Uschi” isn’t even her real first name!
In a 2013 podcast telephone interview with http://www.therialtoreport.com, she said that she was actually born in Switzerland, not Sweden – and that her real first name is Ursula, not Uschi!
No matter what you call her, she was willing to bare all onscreen in any sort of role big or small – it’s a surprise at times to have her pop up unexpectedly in a film – like her verynude appearance in one of the notorious “Ilsa” films:
