A Divine Double Feature: The Diane Linkletter Story and The Neon Woman
Born Harris Glenn Milstead in Baltimore in 1945, Divine and his family lived in very close proximity to the family of John Waters. The two of them became friends and Divine went on to feature in the majority of Waters earliest cinematic atrocities "Roman Candles" (during which the moniker Divine was first applied), Eat Your Makeup, Mondo Trasho and Multiple Maniacs. Two rarely seen performances from the late Great Divine comprise this special videotape tribute. First up, a John Waters short, "THE DIANE LINKLETTER STORY", featuring a young Divine as a girl who wants to "...get high..", "...get laid..." "...do my own thing momma...". Following that, the only existing performance of the smash off, way off, Broadway show, "THE NEON WOMAN". Divine plays the hottest stripper that ever lived who has gone legit, opened her own strip joint, and is trying to cope with whatever comes along. There's Kitty Larue, the stripper with an identity problem; "l'm a lesbian, no, a transvestite no...", There's the horny Bible thumping senator who wants to pray with Divine; "...give me strength, give me faith, give me salvation...", but really wants something less spiritual; "...give me those #i#$!!!" Finally, Divine's young virgin daughter returns from boarding school and within minutes is turned into an alcoholic, heroin addicted stripper who has been betrothed to the black janitor. To spice thing up, there's an evil Divine twin subplot, a series of nylon stocking murders, a junkie stripper who dies and goes to Hell via a limousine drive through Pittsburg (with Leslie Gore singing ...it's my party and I'II cry if want to..." on the limo radio)...there's more, but as the cliche goes, it has to be seen to be seen to be believed! This video is somewhat rare and is intended more for John Waters and Divine enthusiasts than casual fans.
