Female Trouble

Special Guest: Mink Stole

Just in time for International Women’s Day, we’ll be looking at John Waters’s Female Trouble. The 1974 film from the bard of Baltimore stars Divine as Dawn Davenport, a juvenile delinquent who runs into a fashionable crowd that believes crime increases your beauty. Following the birth of Dawn’s daughter, Taffy (played by Mink Stole), her crazy, criminal ways continue to grow thanks to the flash bulbs and mainlining liquid eyeliner. So, get out your cha-cha heels and enjoy our discussion of the film with its star Mink Stole.

Joining us as special guest co-host is Mars One finalist and Detroit area jam maven Juniper Moore.

About The Author
Rob St Mary
Rob St Mary
Born and raised in the northeast suburbs of Detroit, Rob cultivated a love of movies at an early age. He remembers his first movie experience – seeing Star Wars in a theatre at age two – but didn’t remember the images, only the sounds. From there, his folks took him constantly to see things he probably shouldn’t have. At age 9, the VCR came to his home. That’s when Mr. St. Mary decided that was the perfect time to show his young son, Rob, a double feature of Melvin Van Peebles’s Watermelon Man and Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange. Suffice it to say, the boy has always been weird ever since.
