-1946 - John Waters' home movies (1:28)
-1950 - John Waters' home movies (0:48)
-1960-1988 - John Waters Interviews Divine and Edith Massey (2:04:43) (mp3 audio, 192 kbps) - This sounds like material to be used for Shock Value, which includes an interview with Divine. Very informal, which is nice; at some points you really feel like a fly on the wall listening to two old friends talk about the old days. I haven't relistened to all of this, so there may be some surprises as to content, but I've sampled bits throughout and there shouldn't be any issue with quality.
-1964 - The Beginnings of Dreamland Part 1 (3:30) - An interview with Peter Koper recounting the very early meetings of the group.
-1968 - from Dorothy, the Kansas City Pothead (1:15) - Silent footage from the aborted project.
-1968 - The Maelcum Soul Story (13:04) - Friends remember an important early Dreamlander who died at 27. Features an interview with Pat Moran, who reveals herself as almost as entertaining a talker as JW himself. ("The woman ate chalk, for God's sake!")
-1970 - The Beginnings of Dreamland Part 2 (3:51) - Another great talker, Susan Lowe, remembers the late '60's.
-1972 - Pink Flamingos Behind the Scenes: No Shit! (1:04) - Steve Yeager's behind-the-scenes footage (with sound!) of the Pink Flamingos crew waiting around for Pat Moran's dog to take a shit. Did any of these people know it would probably be the most important day of their lives?
-1972 - Pink Flamingos Trailer (2:18)
-1973 - Steve Yeager Talks About Documenting the Making of Pink Flamingos and Female Trouble (4:51)
-1974 - Behind the Scenes: David Lochary (3:01) - An incongruously serious David Lochary talks (apparently during the filming of Female Trouble) about acting in film vs. theatre.
-1974 - Behind the Scenes: Pat Moran (2:28) - A much younger (but looking older!) Pat Moran talks about working for JW.
-1974 - Behind the Scenes: Van Smith (2:27) - The "ugly expert" discusses his craft.
-1974 - Female Trouble Deleted Scene: Dawn's Hair (2:14) - Black and white. A good choice to leave on the editing room floor, but with some funny dialogue between Dawn and her parents on Christmas Eve.
-1974 - Female Trouble Trailer (2:23)
-1974 - Liz Renay: Streaking Hollywood (4:23) - The late, great Liz Renay almost hyperventilates as she recounts her (in)famous LA streak.
-1975 - Criminals and Celebrity (4:12) - Close JW friend, great movie critic, and erstwhile nanny for Willem Dafoe's kids (really!) Dennis Dermody talks about JW's obsession with crime.
-1976 - Love Letter to Edie (Robert Maier, dir.) (14:15) - A wonderful short film about the wonderful Edith Massey. She talks about and reenacts scenes from her colorful life as a b-girl, madam, barmaid, actress, and thrift-store owner.

-1981 - Take Off - Local News Show with JW and Divine (7:53) - John and Divine talk about their careers, and John takes us on a tour of Baltimore, ending up at Edith Massey's thrift shop!
-1981 - The Making of Polyester (6:52) - PA-turned-producer Rachel Talalay remembers her first experiences in Dreamland, and Peter Koper talks about Odorama.
-1983 - Hellfire (5:27) - Peter Koper talks about New York's infamous Hellfire Club, where he and some of the Waters crowd hung out in the early '80's.
-1984 - Local Boston TV Broadcast (4:25) - Features interviews with JW, Mink Stole, and Divine.
-1986 - Below San Francisco - SF Public Access (5:02) - Funny one-on-one interview of JW by an increasingly irritating (but sympathetic) host.
-1986 - John's 40th Birthday (1:09) - Susan Lowe (kind of) remembers the party.
-1987 - Get to Know with Denise Koch - Local Baltimore TV (6:12) - A local reporter gets a tour of JW's apartment, and we get to try and read the titles of the books on his shelves. (Who knew he was a fan of John Irving?)
-1988 - Buddy Deane (2:37) - Two former teen dancers remember the show that inspired Hairspray.
-1988 - Divine in Memoriam (8:26) - Dennis Dermody (hysterically), Susan Lowe (charmingly) and Brook Yeaton (movingly) remember Divine.

-1989 - EXTRA SUPER DUPER SPECIAL MINGEALICIOUS BONUS!!! - A pdf of Cookie's book, Walking Through Clear Water In a Pool Painted Black, featuring her versions of various stories told in the above featurette. This is NOT on the DVD, but a special treat from me to you.
