In 1988 John Waters released the-little-cult-movie-that-could; Hairspray. Starring Divine, Ricki Lake, Sonny Bono, Debbie Harry, and with cameos by Jerry Stiller, Mink Stole, Pia Zadora, this movie was the tamest of Waters' films, by far, and I'm sure he had NO idea that it would be his most famous. The very thought of this movie going on to become a Broadway musical in 2002, and THEN have that version turned in to a major motion picture in 2007.

He's probably sitting somewhere horribly glamorous stroking his pencil-thin mustache with great satisfaction.
