1974 - directed by Charles Swenson
After the runaway success of FRITZ THE CAT, legendary B-movie producer Roger Corman, never one to miss out on a cash in, churned out his own X-rated animated feature DIRTY DUCK. More or less following the adventures of Willard, a lonely insurance salesman, and the perpetually horny duck he inherits, the plot consists mostly of one surreal, sleazy non sequitor after another. THE LA TIMES called it "a sprawling undisciplined piece of sniggering vulgarity that resembles nothing so much as animated bathroom graffiti. Degrading to women, blacks, Chicanos, gays, opes, lesbians, and anyone with an IQ of more than 45.” Hey, that’s the Seventies for you!
