More About Hairspray, Female Trouble, and Multiple Maniacs by John Waters
 
 
 
Overview
Here are three more of John Waters's most popular screenplays -- for the first time in print, including an original introduction by Waters and dozens of fun film stills.

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 -- a 300-pound transvestite who could eat dog shit in one scene and break your heart in the next.

In "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" is 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 -- all because her parents wouldn't buy her cha-cha heels for Christmas. In "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.
