The Kitten Natividad Mother Lode
3 December 2012 | by See all my reviews

Have you seen the white whales? This film is the mother lode of Kitten Natividad's extraordinary bosom. C'mon, you HAVE to be curious about those jumbo puppies, uniquely styled somewhere between natural, the usual implant look, and a baby's soft rear end.

Of the 77 "Actress" and "Self" titles listed here at IMDb; I have viewed 12 of them and sought out numerous others. This is by far the most enjoyable and satisfying exhibition of the aforementioned bazooms I have come across. The Russ Meyer films have a novel, outrageous comedic style to them, but the visual presentation is very cluttered with skewed camera angles and extremely fast crosscutting between scenes. They also feature Kitten pre-implants: well endowed, but not nearly as spectacular.

If you really want to feast your eyes on 8th and 9th not-quite-natural wonders of the world, like a dog tilting his head in puzzlement and trying to figure out "How can it be??" … Takin' It Off is the catbird seat. You'll think there's two new balloons coming down 6th Avenue in Macy's Thanksgiving Parade. It's one generous scene after another, in and out of various costumes and situations, with good picture composition, lighting, and close-ups … interspersed with silly comedy and an assortment of other nudie-cutie acts. In addition to the stage show at the strip club where much of the movie is set, there are a couple of very fun group strip scenes at a library and a workout spa.

The sequel—Takin' It All Off— is also quite excellent, with a mix of Kitten (in some new scenes and some flashbacks to Takin' It Off), the literally "outstanding" Candy Evans, the gorgeous Becky LeBeau, and the bevy of other cuties who show their assets quite generously to a great mix of fresh tunes. If you want a little more of Kitten after this, Eroticise is a good extension of the extravaganza.

Sadly, Kitten underwent a double mastectomy for treatment of breast cancer in October 1999 (per the IMDb bio). If you would like to witness her marvelous sense of humor about that misfortune, be sure to check out The Double-D Avenger.
