USA, 1981, 86 Minute Running Time
ONE NIGHT ONLY! Friday, January 24th 9:30pm
Screening in conjunction with I am Divine, opening January 10th at Sie FilmCenter.
Ladies and gentlemen, the first superstar couple of ‘80s indie cinema: Tab Hunter and Divine! This shocker of a crazed pairing came courtesy of John Waters’ Polyester (filmed in “Odorama”, in which patrons of its original theatrical run were given scratch-n-sniff cards to relive key odors throughout the film!) Frustrated housewife Divine bounces back from her disastrous marriage to a porno theater owner and finds love in the arms of study Tab, but all is not as it seems in this crackpot ode to classic crime melodramas. Tab even croons the theme song (with other songs performed by Bill Murray and Debbie Harry!), and once you’ve seen him frolic in a field with Divine, you’ll be ruined for other movies forever. See it with someone you love to smell!
DIRECTOR: John Waters
