Supervixen Uschi Digard
Supervixen Uschi Digard is a former softcore porn star and model mostly known for her roles in Russ Meyer films. She was born in Sweden of Swiss-French heritage.
Digard burst into cinema in Sweden where she starred in several softcore erotic films. In 1967, she went to the U.S. where she soon began appearing in numerous sexploitation movies such as Uschi’s Hollywood Adventure (aka Raquel’s Motel, 1970), a film so low-budget it was shot without sound and then dubbed with a narrative voice over.
She also appeared in pornographic magazines. She was among the best known big bust models in the late-1960s and early-1970s. Magazines in which she appeared frequently include Knight, Cinema X, Latent Image, and Gent.
Digard was cast in Russ Meyer’s Cherry, Harry & Raquel! (1970) to provide the dénouement in a final interpretive dance scene symbolizing the death of the antagonist. Digard went on to appear in more of Meyer’s films in the 1970s: Supervixens (1975) and Beneath the Valley of the Ultravixens (1979). She was also a co-producer on Up! and Beneath the Valley of the Ultravixens.
She appeared as Mayday in the cult action comedy Superchick (1973) starring Joyce Jillson, and starred with John Holmes in I Want You (1974).
She had a minor role as a prisoner in the cult classic Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS (1975), appeared as ‘Super Girl’ in Fantasm (1976) directed by Richard Franklin, and had a small role in Chesty Anderson, USN (1976). She also had a role as a character called ‘Pussy’ in Female Chauvinists (1976).
In 1977 Digard had a cameo appearance (naked in a shower) in the segment “Catholic High School Girls in Trouble” in John Landis’s The Kentucky Fried Movie.
In 1979, she performed with John Holmes, Johnny Keyes, Serena, Candy Samples, Kitten Natividad, and Kelly Stewart in the pornographic film John Holmes and the All-Star Sex Queens from Zane Entertainment Group. In those years, she also starred in some “sexy wrestling” short-footage films, mainly for Triumph Studios and Ron Dvorkin’s Bellstone.
