Nerd Girl of Note #36

Possibly the most underrated of Russ Meyer's actresses. A Quebecer turned exotic dancer, turned actress, Haji began working with Meyer on his magnum opus Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! as the submissive and jealous Rosie — Varla's (Tura Satana) lover. She appeared in Motor Psycho, Good Morning... and Goodbye!, Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, and Supervixens. A quick look at Meyer's films shows Haji to have been in the most with five, followed only by Uschi Digard with four, and Lorna Maitland with three.

The rest of her career has been spent in B-Movies, including eye-candy roles in Ilsa: Harem Keeper of the Oil Sheiks and Wham Bam Thank You Space Man. Thus far, her last films were 2001's The Double-D Avenger costarring with other Meyer notables, and 2003's Killer Drag Queens on Dope.

the rumor is tarantino wants to cast kim kardashian as her in his remake.i dont know if killing him or lucas first will serve to save my memories faster.

I don't dislike the idea of K.K. playing Rosie as much as I dislike the idea of a remake.

I think Lucas and Tarantino are doing an Eifel Tower on us (Eifel Tower here, BTW - a rude cartoon).

Couldn't agree more. Haji is mesmerizing, and only gets lost in FPKK! b/c of the preternatural dominance of Tura Satana. Any other actress, Haji would have walked away with the movie.

I've got several Meyer movies at home I need to watch. This might inspire me to move them up the list!

I just got "Motor Psycho" - so many movies, so little popcorn :-)

Thanks for coming by Andrés. You might check out The Double-D Avenger, mostly for Haji. She funny, and still has her looks.
