Nerd Girl of Note #81

Known by many names, including Astrid Lillimor, Marie Brown, Francine Franklin, Heide Sohl, Euji Swenson, and many others is this week's Nerd Girl of Note and Russ Meyer favorite, Uschi Digard.

Uschi was a model and actress appearing in many men's magazines, softcore loops, and a wide variety of films. In the Big Book of Breasts, porn historian Dian Hanson listed Uschi as one of the top models of the 1970s. She has 124 acting credits in the IMDb, many of which are just eye candy roles, such as Chesty Anderson, USN, Blood Sabbath, and The Black Gestapo. Meatier roles include Superchick and Getting Into Heaven. She is also listed as a producer for Russ Meyer's Up! and Beneath the Valley of the Ultra Vixens, as well as I. Robert Levy's Can I Do It 'Till I Need Glasses? According to an interview in Hanson's book, Digard was born in Sweden. She moved to American while working as a corporate translator, having decided to study language at a young age to read foreign books. Reportedly she speaks eight languages; German, Italian, Spanish, Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, French and English.

Uschi has done about everything in the exploitation world aside from hardcore pornography. She was in the hardcore film I Want You staring John Holmes, but was in a softcore vignette. Similarly she was in the Australian productions Fantasm and Fantasm Comes Again. She was in two of the infamous Ilsa films staring Dyanne Thorne, and most famously (perhaps) as the shower girl in the "Catholic High School Girls in Trouble" segment of Kentucky Fried Movie. She was a regular feature in the men's magazines Gent and Nugget in the '70s, often appearing with Candy Samples, who she also appeared with in nineteen films.
