John Waters’ controversial 1972 cult comedy, which he made for a whopping $12,000, features the gargantuan Divine as Babs Johnson, who lives with her mother (Edith Massey), bad boy son Crackers (Danny Mills) and a traveling companion named Cotton (Mary Vivian Pearce) in a mobile home park in a suburb of Baltimore. A tabloid paper has called Babs the “filthiest person alive” and Babs — and Divine — prove the point in the perverted ending which finds Babs putting dog feces in her mouth and eating them. The film was banned in Australia, Canada and Norway.<br>
