THE SWINGING CHEERLEADERS

Jack Hill, USA, 1974, Arrow Films

Jack Hill spent the Seventies specializing in tough female characters: girl gangs (SWITCHBLADE SISTERS), women in prison (THE BIG DOLL HOUSE, THE BIG BIRD CAGE), turning Pam Grier into a star with COFFY and FOXY BROWN, and the “cheerleader” line of drive-in favorites with THE SWINGING CHEERLEADERS.

Kate, an undergraduate at Mesa University, goes undercover as a cheerleader for her college newspaper in order to expose “female exploitation in contemporary society”. Instead of oppression she finds love, friendship and a bigger fish to fry: corruption in the football team, headed up by the coach and his pals.

A big Tarantino favorite, THE SWINGING CHEERLEADERS features a cast of cult favorites including Colleen Camp (WAYNE’S WORLD, CLUE), Rainbeaux Smith (CAGED HEAT, THE INCREDIBLE MELTING MAN) and future Playmate of the Month Rosanne Katon.
