Fine Line Features
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.
