It's simply Divine!

Renegade filmmaker and noted aficionado of expressive bad taste, John Waters exploded into international infamy with this darkly comic, no-budget parade of the perverse in which countercultural drag queen Divine stars as Babs Johnson, a flashy criminal on the lam from the FBI who is hiding out in a trailer outside of Baltimore.

Accompanying Babs are her egg-obsessed mother (Edith Massey); her degenerate son, Crackers (Danny Mills); and Cotton (Mary Vivian Pierce), Babs's duplicitous traveling companion and Crackers's co-conspirator in unwholesome erotic play. While Babs would prefer to be left in peace, she takes great pride in her status as "The Filthiest Person Alive" (an honor confirmed by one of America's sleazier tabloid newspapers), and when Connie and Raymond Marble (Mink Stole and David Lochary) announce their plans to take the title away from her, Babs is not about to stand idly by.
