Mudhoney (1965)

Delta Films
Directed by Russ Meyer
My rating: 2 stars out of 4
IMDb Wikipedia
(DVD, Arrow Films)

An ex-con traveling across the country runs out of money in Missouri. He gets a job on a farm run a friendly elderly man and his wife. However, she is married to an abusive, adulterous alcoholic, played to the hilt by Hal Hopper. Realizing his wife and the ex-con are falling in love, he conspires with a local preacher to get her money. Before he can do that, his lust for the preacher's wife leads to murder and his own downfall. Midwestern melodrama peppered with Meyer's fondness for large breasts and funny faces. Worth it alone for Hopper's crazed performance.
