Movie-A-Day #66: Pink Flamingos (1972).

March 7, 2011

It was on this day in 1988 that Harris Glenn Milstead – better known simply as Divine – died at the young age of 42. He was a larger than life drag queen who became a cult legend for starring in a series of offbeat and disgustingly awesome underground films for John Waters in the 1970s. His masterpiece is probably the brilliantly scatological “Pink Flamingos” in which his character engages in an all-out battle to be named “Filthiest Person Alive,” culminating in him…. well, I won’t spoil it for you. Just watch the film and be prepared for anything.
