Jeffrey Schwartz's I Am Divine documentary is now available on DVD

We thought we knew everything there was to know about midnight-movie icon Divine (and heard every story that John Waters had to tell), but there always seems to be one more amazing anecdote to uncover. Award-winning documentary filmmaker Jeffrey Schwartz (Wrangler: Anatomy of an Icon, Vito) impressed us with his work on the wonderful I Am Divine, about the plus-sized "cinematic terrorist" turned international icon of bad taste, when it was released last year.

But now that the doc about Baltimore native Harris Glenn Milstead—which includes interviews with John Waters (Pink Flamingos, Hairspray), co-stars Ricki Lake (Hairspray), Tab Hunter (Polyester, Lust in the Dust) and Mink Stole (Female Trouble, Desperate Living), and his mother—is available on DVD April 8 (from Wolfe Video), we discover there's even MORE great footage that no one should miss.

The bonus materials include more than 30 minutes of deleted footage that sheds additional light on the cha-cha heels and other things he put in his mouth. We have an exclusive clip to see just what we mean.
