Ironically, nearly 20 years later, Kitten went on to do anal on film in at least two of her later XXX hardcore porn outings!
Born just across the Rio Grande from El Paso in Juarez, Mexico, on 14 February 1948, Francesca 'Kitten' Natividad has lived a pretty extraordinary life. One of nine kids, she couldn't speak English until she was ten. Her mum married a US citizen and they moved to Texas, where Kitten ended up senior class president in school. She worked as a maid and cook for Hollywood starlet Stella Stevens after moving to California, and as a key punch operator for IBM before turning to go-go dancing to make ends meet. She won Miss Nude Universe.
Kitten was introduced to her eventual partner of 15 years, cult director Russ Meyer, by fellow dancer Shari Eubank, a performer in Meyer's 1975 film Supervixens. After some hot shoots in the 1970s with fellow bra buster legends like Candy Samples, Uschi Digard and Patty Plenty, in the 1980s Kitten finally began dipping her toe into hardcore movies. She started with nude appearances, graduated to lesbian scenes and finally went on to a handful of boy-girl scenes and full-on anal sex. Kitten was famously booked by Sean Penn as the stripper for his bachelor party to celebrate his 1985 marriage to Madonna.
