Even Hitler Had a Girlfriend (1992)

Director: Ronnie Cramer Starring: Andren Scott, Sarah Young, Jean Wolf
This film noir is the story of a security guard named Marcus Templeton who blows his life savings on prostitutes in the span of a couple of weeks. In a tragic case of life imitating art, lead actor Andren Scott (born Scott Marcus in 1957 in Kansas City, Mo.) dies in 1994 in a Denver convenience store robbery. The movie, which has achieved something of a cult following among black comedy film fans, included a scene filmed at (you guessed it) Mount Rushmore.

Back Street Jane

'Yesterday she was a thief … today she’s an extortionist … tomorrow she’ll be rich … or dead!' Screamed the tagline of Back Street Jane, the first stand-alone feature from musician, visual artist and filmmaker Ronnie Cramer.

Shot in lurid 16mm, Back Street Jane is the rare Film Noir-inspired film that doesn’t come off as imitation.

This is genuine, bare-knuckle low-budget filmmaking, as gritty as it gets. A tough-as-Hell jaunt to the wrong side of town so packed with drugs, violence, sex and vengeance that upon release it garnished high praise from scores of indie review zines and mags across the country; including Psychotronic Video, who said: “Non-stop double-crosses and plot surprises in the tradition of movies like ‘The Killing’ and ‘The Asphalt Jungle’!”

Even Hitler Had a Girlfriend

'One of the funniest goldurn movies I’ve ever watched. One of the greatest independent comedies ever made.' – Joe Bob Briggs

It’s only now that other filmmakers are catching up to the completely unhinged tone of Ronnie Cramer’s masterpiece – in fact most people still don’t get it.

Even Hitler Had a Girlfriend is a true black comedy, telling the pathetic story of night security guard Marcus Templeton. We come in near the end of Marcus’ downward spiral, he’s reached adulthood only to realize he has nothing to show for it but body fat. Desperate and unable to find a woman that would actually have sex with him, he starts calling 1-900 numbers and begins a rapidly growing addiction that might just be more than he can handle.

The lines separating satire from confession; art-film from shot-on-video nudie-comedy; and black humor from compassion are impossibly blurred, Even Hitler Had a Girlfriend is truly and forever an underground classic as well as a film that stands by itself – there’s just nothing else like it.

The Hitler Tapes

Marcus Templeton is back, armed with an endless collection of cassette tapes he recorded while calling 1-900 numbers!

The Hitler Tapes isn’t a proper sequel, but it’s an essential entry nonetheless. Andren Scott, the actor who played Templeton in Cramer’s Even Hitler Had a Girlfriend, was tragically killed when he witnessed a robbery take place.

The Hitler Tapes remained unfinished until it was decided that the existing footage should be used and it was combined with unused material from Even Hitler Had a Girlfriend. The Hitler Tapes is a testament to the strength of Cramer’s unique style in Even Hitler Had a Girlfriend, it still works here. And most certainly we’re lucky that there’s another film featuring Andren Scott’s totally one-of-a-kind portrayal of Templeton: hilarious, awkward, and completely endearing.

Highway Amazon

Highway Amazon was Cramer’s first documentary feature, and like his narrative films it’s not easy to pin this one down to any exact type. After years of unrewarding jobs and ridicule over her desire to work out and be muscular, Christine Fetzer has finally found happiness.

She travels across the country and, by appointment, for pay, wrestles men. And beats the hell out of them. Like Cramer’s best work, what is painfully hilarious quickly becomes something stranger and more honest; almost like a glorious, secret celebration for the Weird among us to hopefully find and connect with one day.

With Cramer’s incredibly sly and intelligent filmmaking, Fetzer quickly shatters the myriad of perceptions that the audience had formed for her and steps out into the light where we can see her for what she really is: herself. Some people may make fun of Christine Fetzer and laugh at her, some may call her a freak, or some may think she’s ugly. But that’s what they always say about those strong enough to truly find themselves.

Should I kill myself or get another hooker?

Even Hitler Had a Girlfriend (1992)

The title comes from lead character Marcus Templeton’s revelation that even the most evil man in the history of mankind was able to get a girl. Marcus is a prototypical loser: a 30 year old security guard who does the graveyard shift at an abandoned lot, and who has just as little contact with other humans in his down life. Marcus has no males friends, nor any female acquaintances; his obsession with sex, particularly women’s breasts is either the cause or end result, who knows. At first we see him consume copious amounts of porn and engage in peeping tom nonsense, but eventually resorts to phone sex and finally hookers. Along the way he comes up with so-called genius ideas, like secretly audio and video taping his hook ups, to save money on porn you see, plus getting a corset and 'Reduce-O-Creme' in hopes of improving his looks and self esteem, to get a regular girl. Neither works, naturally.

And on top of all that, Marcus is also tormented by the spirit of his dead father, who pops up every once in a while to let his son know what a POS he is, his neighbor keeps slipping religious propaganda under the door, and he also looks like wanted mass murder. But none of these points are at all developed, alas. Even Hitler Had a Girlfriend feels like a bizarre mishmash of Clerks and Sex, Lies, and Videotape, with some truly compelling moments. Andren Scott, who plays Marcus, simply shines as this pathetic individual that kinda deserves his lot in life, yet who is still totally sympathetic. Unfortunately, the movie’s pacing and even progress of events is all of the place, and the end result is somewhat tedious. Which I guess you can see for yourself; couldn’t find the trailer, but just the whole thing, and figured what the hey. Oh, and there’s also a sequel!

The Hitler Tapes (1994)

Cramer, perhaps motivated by the success of Even Hitler Had a Girlfriend (I’m guessing that he got a decent amount of pub when Briggs called it the 'Best Drive-In Movie of the Year' of 1991), decided to do a follow up. Unfortunately, actor Andren Scott was killed halfway through during filming. In real life, Scott was an everyday schlep apparently; according to Briggs, he worked at a convenience store during the day, and was asked by a friend to do the evening shift. And the one time he does so, he gets robbed and the murdered in the process, for a measly $12. Such a shame. Anyhow, it’s hard to judge the sequel given that Cramer had a real creative quandary on his hands.

Much of the footage that had been shot is simply Marcus engaging in the same nonsense as before; he’s still trying to haggle down the prices of hookers and asking them bizarre questions while videotaping them. Though it also gets all artsy fartsy; the parts in which women are respond to Marcus are way longer and far more existential. There’s also this super model that’s seen listening to Marcus’s secrete audio recordings in various parts of town. In the end, The Hitler Tapes is flat out depressing, given the knowledge of what happened to the lead, and how this was his last movie, and the fact that it’s shot on video and not film makes it that much worse.

Highway Amazon (2001)

Cramer’s one and only documentary is centered on Christine Fetzer, a female body builder that [sic] travels the country to wrestles men in hotel room. Basically, horny guys that are into muscle worship. Basically it’s Christine giving us the 411 about her background, how she fell into such a thing, and various anecdotes regarding memorable patrons. Just to be clear, she doesn’t have sex with these men, and instead simply tosses them around on a bed, often putting them in head scissors for prolonged periods of time. We are told that sometimes dudes will jerk off afterwards, but that’s about it. What a living!

The yarn that Christine spins is definitely amusing, though the best part is seeing her grapple dudes, but not surprisingly, many did not want to be seen on filmed. As such, it’s mostly just Fetzer talking directly to the camera and unfortunately that gets simply old after the first hour. That and her flexing for the camera, and she only has like three poses. It’s still worth checking out if it every [sic] crosses your path, and if anything, it’s interesting seeing how wackos found each other before the internet really came into its own (whereas today, there’s like a million ways to become aquatinted with wack jobs).

I'm Short, Not Stupid Presents: 'Cantata in C Major'

If you've ever heard a woman scream and thought, this is music to my ears, then Cantata in C Major is the fucked up short film for you. It's filled with screams, shrieks, howls, and dramatic fainting. The movie is underground filmmaker Ronnie Cramer's ode to fear and distress. Compiling 605 brief audio and video clips from various vintage motion pictures, he assembles an experimental cantata, which is basically a bizarre menage-a-trois between Hollywood screams, actor's faces, and electronically synthesized versions of their terror. All of this is concurrently transposed on screen into traditional musical notation, which, if played, is the equivalent of musical masochism.

Cramer's no stranger to strange. A re-appropriator of perverse Hollywood and schlock art, he's made films where 100 celebrity mug shots morph into each other or hundreds of trashy romance novel covers blend into a hot mess. Cantata in C Major similarly references pop culture and society. The opening video clip is reminiscent of the Network's famous scene where Albert Finney's character demands everyone walk to their window, open it, and yell, 'I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore.' Functioning as catharsis, the screaming becomes almost hypnotic with the electronic drones amplifying the musicality of it. Then after it's all done, there's a calm, an apology, time runs out, and a woman announces she 'feels better already.' Classic happy Hollywood ending.

Ronnie Cramer first rose to (relative) popularity with his acclaimed feature film Even Hitler Had a Girlfriend, which was about a lonely security guard who spends all of his savings on call girls in under two weeks. Ten years later, he made his first feature documentary called Highway Amazon, which follows a female body builder who travels the country wrestling men in hotel rooms. These are weird films. You should check them out. - Jeffrey Bowers
