EAT YOUR MAKEUP
Dreamland, 1968, 45 minutes
Starring Maelcum Soul, David Lochary, Marina Melin, Divine, Mary Vivian Pearce, Mona Montgomery
In this very early experimental film, an insane governess (early Dreamland star Maelcum Soul) kidnaps young models and, among other atrocities, forces them to eat their makeup and model themselves to death! And they do this in front of her boyfriend (played by David Lochary) and their friends!
Another highlight is a re-enactment of the Kennedy Assasination featuring Divine as Jackie Bouvier Kennedy. Particularly tasteless considering it was only a few years after the actual assassination from which the country was still reeling, and the same year that Robert Kennedy was gunned down.
The film originally only screened once at a local church. It has never been released on video. However, it was screened occasionally as part of the touring exhibition John Waters: Change of Life, and at career retrospectives since. Star Maelcolm Soul died a few weeks after this was made.
