Vixen lives in a Canadian mountain resort with her naive pilot husband. While he's away flying in tourists, she gets it on with practically everybody including a husband and his wife, and even her biker brother. She is openly racist, and she makes it clear that she won't do the wild thing with her brother's biker friend, who is black. Written by

This is one of my favorite films. It stands out to me over other Russ Meyer movies because of the simplicity of the plot. Vixen loves her husband but she is a sex addict who can not seem to control herself. I think the way Erica Gavin plays her is sweet even though she is a real super-bitch. I love that you can tell that her husband is something to special to her and everything else was just a maze of bodies. It is strange that she is a racist but I have a hard time thinking of other films from this time that depicted racism in an ugly and blunt depiction. I think it's hilarious that Vixen defends Capitalism in an airplane that is being hijacked by a Scottish Communist. She is a bisexual, racist, sex addict, all American girl in the backwoods of Canada. The fish dance is brilliant. Fans of John Waters will see this films profound influence on his career with Divine. In Female Trouble, Divine looks like a 300lb version of Vixen and she performs with dead fish as well... I love this movie. It is mostly funny... sometimes it is oddly sensitive and sweet. I don't even think this is RM's best movie but there is something special about it. The music by William Loose is great, you will be humming the theme from Vixen for days! "Is she Woman?... Or Animal?"
