From “Renegade filmmaker and noted aficionado of expressive bad taste John Waters exploded into international infamy with this darkly comic, no-budget parade of the perverse (his third feature film, and first in color), in which plus-size cross-dresser Divine stars as Babs Johnson, a flashy criminal on the lam from the FBI who is hiding out in a trailer outside of Baltimore, Maryland. While Babs would prefer to be left in peace, she takes great pride in her status as ‘the Filthiest Person Alive’ — an honor confirmed by one of America’s sleazier tabloid newspapers — and when Connie and Raymond Marble (Mink Stole and David Lochary) announce their plans to take the title away from her, Babs is not about to stand idly by. Shot on a budget of only 12,000 dollars, the film has grossed close to ten million dollars around the world, and its success launched John Waters into a career as America’s leading authority on poor taste.” (Rated NC-17 | 1 hour, 33 minutes)
