John Waters’ The Diane Linkletter Story

[Baltimore]: np, [1970]. Offset. 8 ½ x 11 in. Very good. Item #6475

Flyer for John Waters’ early short film The Diane Linkletter Story, starring Divine as the titular character “Diane.” The movie was a dramatized, improvisational rendition of Diane Linkletter’s suicide. Linkletter was the daughter of TV personality and moralizer Art Linkletter, who claimed his daughter had been under the influence of LSD during the time of her death, as part of his long-running crusade against drug use. Waters has called the movie a “wonderful exercise in creativity” and also “the worst taste thing I ever did.”.
