“Rah Rah Rah” Indeed!
One of the fun aspects of cult cinema is to highlight genres that had a wild run in grind houses and Dave-in all across America in the 70’s, like this one!
Yes, there was a great run of cult film gems about this most “All-American” of pastimes – the cheerleader!
Here Is An Important Message For You:
Yes, indeed so much to learn!
Time to head back to the seventies, a more innocent time that could be exploited by shrewd film Producers, who released a wave of movies celebrating Cheerleaders!
As you can see from the poster, this movie was X-rated when released in 1973, a time when grind house movie theaters and drive-ins were flooded with wild, sexy movies…
“Her Breasts Were Usually Full!”
It was a wild time in film, thanks in part to films like this – which clearly exploited “cheerleaders” and that time in high school when the best guys were the jocks and all the sexy girls were cheerleaders – and yes, this trailer makes that statement about full breasts!
Talk about a “sexy fun” plot! A group of cheerleaders from the local high school decide to show their school spirit for their football team by sleeping with the opponents the night before the game so that they can be so worn out the opposition won’t be able to play!
These films evoke a more innocent time – even though there is lots of nudity and simulated sex, it’s presented as a “rite of passage” – this film is really a “naked American Graffiti.”
And of course, it was a HUGE success, leading to a sequel:
Revenge of the Cheerleaders!
The sequel offers up more of the same, but this time with an “R” rating, drawing in even more teenagers across the country. Check out the trailer:
And don’t forget this:
David Hasselhoff is “Boner!”
The plot is the same: feuding Cheerleaders try to set each other up as the big game approaches…but it has a lot of fun, goofy antics, and as IMDB so cleverly stated:
“Worth the rental price just so if you ever meet David Hasselhoff, you can say ‘Hey, I loved your work as Boner’!”
And since “The Hoff” says it OK, then the cheerleader floodgates opened!
There are more “cheerleader” comedies than I can mention here, but none are more goofy and “good clean naughty fun” than this:
“The Swinging Cheerleaders!”
Take a look at the trailer:
Classic Exploitation Director Jack Hill delivers again! Hill was a master at films that had beautiful women and tons of kick ass action, with a twisted sense of humor as well!
Rosanne Katon starred in this one, along with Colleen Camp and Cheryl ‘Rainbeaux’ Smith – Rosanne had a great cult film career and you can more of her work by clicking here:
Here’s a quick summation of the plot: In order to write an article on how cheerleading demeans women, a reporter for a college newspaper infiltrates the cheerleading squad. While doing so, she uncovers unscrupulous dealings!
Cheryl ‘Rainbeaux’ Smith was a terrific young Actress who had a sad life and died too young…you can read all about this young star by clicking on my story here…
Of course, the most notorious “Cheerleader” movie was XXX-rated!

And finally, here’s another 70’s sexy comedy that jumped on the “Cheerleader” bandwagon and provided an early role for Robert “Revenge Of The Nerds” Carradine!
The Pom Pom Girls!
More classic comedy from Crown International Pictures:
“Hey, Duane! That crease, down the middle of your face – is that your asshole?”
The trailer says it all:
The plot is simple: jocks go after the Pom Pom Girls, which leads to a lot of making out, rampant nudity, and the big game at the end.
So that’s a first look at the wild “Cheerleader” genre – what a time for cinema!
And while this isn’t a “cheerleader” film, it has an iconic cheerleading moment!
You see, Michelle Drake’s cheerleading led to a very revealing moment in the movie!
