Uta Erickson (who often used the stage names “Artemidia Grillet” and “Carla Erikson”) was a Norwegian actress who was in many sexploitation films of the late 1960s. She starred in several provocatively titled films directed by Michael and Roberta Findlay, including The Kiss Of Her Flesh, A Thousand Pleasures, The Curse Of Her Flesh, and The Ultimate Degenerate. Erickson was also a favorite of directors Doris Wishman (Love Toy) and Barry Mahon (Sex Killer). Some of her films, notably Mnasidika were arty enough to pass as the “low end” of an arthouse pairing with a film by a European auteur. At her best, such as in Passion in Hot Hollows directed by Joe Sarno, her acting could make a softcore scene far more erotic. Deep Throat rang the death knell to this softcore genre and effectively ended Erickson’s film career.
