Notorious Baltimore criminal and underground figure Divine goes up against a sleazy married couple who make a passionate attempt to humiliate her and seize her tabloid-given title as "The Filthiest Person Alive".
Years later, John Waters was asked by a reporter why Divine consumed dog feces for the movie. Waters replied, "It was just a little piece of dogshit, and it made her a star."
Miss Cotton, I got somethin' in mind today I never ever tried before. Somethin' very excitin' for you. My little chickens are gonna be in this show today, Cotton. Me and some nice. juicy, plump chickens!
When Connie and Raymond have burned Divine's trailer, they go back to their house. When the door is open, you can hear Divine talking to John Waters.
For Sadie, Katie, and Les- February 1972 (The Manson Family members Susan Atkins, Patricia Krenwinkel and Leslie Van Houten. February 1972 was the month when the California State Supreme Court abolished the death penalty in California (it was later reinstated), reducing the sentences of the convicted Manson Family members to life imprisonment.)
Because of this film's off-color, explicit nature, it has been edited for content many times all over the world. The Canadian censors recently reinstated five of the seven scenes that were originally edited in that country. The United Kingdom has never seen the complete version of the film. A town on Long Island, New York banned the film altogether. The Japanese laserdisc version contains a blur superimposed over all displays of pubic hair. Prints also exist that were censored by the Maryland Censor Board.
