'B' Movie Director Russ Meyer Dies

Russ Meyer, who directed such classics as Vixen, and Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!, died Saturday at his home in the Hollywood Hills. He was 82. Meyer's Beyond the Valley of the Dolls was widely panned but also admired for its kitschy sense of humor. Hear NPR's Neda Ulaby.
