DD-cup drive-in star sextraordinaire Uschi Digard reigns as one of the most awe-inspiring actresses to ever electrify a cinema screen. As a frequent collaborator with boobie connoisseur Russ Meyer, she was a signature starlet in some of his most mouth-watering features like Cherry, Harry & Raquel! (1970), Supervixens (1975), Up! (1976), and Beneath the Valley of the Ultra-Vixens (1979). She cemented her status as perennial Skin favorite with her legendary pressed-mams scene in the over-the-top(less) comedy The Kentucky Fried Movie (1977).
Her heavy Swedish accent is heard in a brief speaking part in Cherry, Harry & Raquel!
Digart was cast in Russ Meyer's Cherry, Harry & Raquel! to provide the denouement in a final interpretive dance scene symbolizing the death of the protagonist. This plot devise was necessitated after the lead actress left the shoot early and 20 minutes of footage was needed to complete the film. She soon became a favorite of Meyer whose obsession with "well cantilevered" women is legendary. Digart would go on to appear in three more of Meyer's films in the 1970s. She was an associate producer in two of his movies (as well as in another sex comedy). Digart and Meyer's relationship was reportedly never intimate.
