IBM's low pay drove me to start stripping
Russ Meyer star chose blue films over Big Blue
Kitten Natividad, buxom star of the Russ Meyer's films Up!, and Beneath the Valley of the Ultravixens, ditched work at IBM as a key punch operator in 1969 to start stripping.
"I discovered that the sister of one of my neighbors made a living as a stripper and earned $300 a week which was twice as much as I made," she writes here. She bagged the IBM gig after a year's course at trade school.
Other highlight's on Kitten's CV include winning Miss Nude Universe in 1973, and stripping at Sean Penn's stag night in September 1985.
