  • Hairspray, Female Trouble, and Multiple Maniacs: Screenplays


John Waters, the writer and director of these movies, is a legendary filmmaker whose films occupy their own niche in cinema history. His muse and leading lady was Divine ó a 300-pound transvestite who could eat dog shit in one scene and break your heart in the next.

HAIRSPRAY: a 'pleasantly plump' teenager, played by Ricki Lake, and her big-hearted hairdresser mother, played by Divine, teach 1962 Baltimore about race relations by integrating a local TV dance show.

FEMALE TROUBLE: a coming-of-age story gone terribly awry: Dawn Davenport (again, Divine), progresses from loving schoolgirl to crazed mass murderer destined for the electric chair ó all because her parents wouldn't buy her cha-cha heels for Christmas.

MULTIPLE MANIACS: dubbed by Waters a 'celluloid atrocity,' the traveling sideshow 'Lady Divine's Cavalcade of Perversions' is actually a front for a group of psychotic kidnappers, with Lady Divine herself the most vicious and depraved of all - but her life changes after she gets raped by a fifteen-foot lobster.
