MULTIPLE MANIACS (1970) Mini poster
[Baltimore: Dreamland Studios, 1970]. Vintage original 11 x 8 1/2″ (28 x 21 cm.) mini-poster, FINE.
An extremely scarce mini-poster for John Waters’ second feature film, with what had by then become his stock company (Divine, Mink Stole, David Lochary, Edith Massey and others). The plot involves a traveling troupe of sideshow freaks whose free shows (known as the Cavalcade of Perversions) end in the murder of all the attendees — and, near the film’s conclusion, Divine gets raped by a giant lobster. There was a larger poster also created for this world premiere; it is impossibly rare.
