The Goal Of This Blog


THE GOAL OF THIS BLOG

The internet provides mankind with an abundance of information. Though the quality and accuracy may leave much to be desired, when used properly you may end up with pretty interesting stuff.
So my hopes weren't very high when searching for any information regarding actress Ulrike Butz, in my humble opinion the undisputed queen of German sexploitation. Yet, even with such low expectations, what I did find was utterly disappointing: an almost blank profile on IMDb (save a filmography) and a couple of small pictures from the films she starred in. That's it. No date or place of birth, no biographical information of any kind, no interviews, no candid pictures, no film reviews elaborating on her career or personal life.
I extended my search and was able to buy some more films, movie memorabilia and more interestingly, a few magazines that included unique pictures and interviews. Although I wouldn't exactly describe nudie- and tabloid magazines as trustworthy sources.

So this is my last resort. This blog is purely intended as a communication platform that will hopefully lead to more information.
Should you, dear reader, be in possession of any bit of information regarding Ulrike, I would greatly appreciate you sharing it with me, and with that the whole world, so I can ultimately change this blog's title to something along the lines of "The Ultimate And Only Source On The Net For All Things Ulrike". Together, maybe we can fill a huge overlooked hole in the world wide web.
To increase the chance at any kind of success with this obvious long shot, I will post whatever I already DO know, along with pictures and anything else that may trigger someone else's memory or interest.

NOTES:
According to IMDb and my own research, this should be a complete list of the films that are blessed with Ulrike's charming presence.
As with most (s)exploitation films many of them were released under various titles for domestic and foreign distribution, sometimes re-edited and re-packaged beyond the verge of recognition.  Just take a look at the U.S. posters for the Schulmädchen-Report series and you'll see what I mean.

On that note, IMDb lists a movie called "Gejodelt wird im Unterhöschen", from 1974, which I myself didn't include in Ulrike's filmography.  To start with, I'm unable to find any piece of information regarding this Ernst Hofbauer flick anywhere.  When comparing the cast and crew who apparently worked on this show, I found its (almost) identical twin in the infamous "Wenn die prallen Möpse hüpfen", also from 1974.  Save the composer (which could be a pseudonym), both film credits are exactly the same.  Furthermore, the only detail that can be found on the IMDb page is an alternate title: "Bedtime Stories for Grownups".  Now, take a close look at the German and U.S. posters from "Wenn die prallen Möpse hüpfen".  Indeed, the Yanks grabbed some big fat markers, drew clothes over the naked (cartoon!) women and re-titled it "Bedtime Stories...".

Even more annoying are theatrical posters that feature Ulrike's name in all of its glory, but upon viewing the actual film it turns out she's nowhere to be found (and I have a trained eye!).  Very frustrating...  Prime example/offender here is "Wenn's juckt - wird gejodelt".













(click pic to enlarge and search for Ulrike's name, it's on there!)

Makes me wonder what actually happened...  Seeing it was released in October 1974 and by now Uli had become a drug addict, it could well be that she was hired on this show and either didn't show up or ended up on the cutting room floor.  It's not that uncommon for this type of film to have a poster drawn in advance, as it's a cheap way to attract backers for the project before even a single frame is shot.

Still so many unresolved questions...

Hello from Greece! You are so right regarding Ulrike Butz! She is definately the Queen of the whole era of films. Have you noticed how beautiful she looks even with today's standards? Really a classic beauty. Congratulations for your efforts on this blog and your work as a collector, which is helpful for all.

It's always nice to learn there are other folks out there who've noticed Ulrike. It's a shame so little is know about her, yet her beauty will remain forever in the pics & flicks!
