A controversial spoof on the Spaghetti western (some love it, some hate it), Lust in the Dust features the 300-pound Divine as the inimitable Rosie Velez, riding into view in full drag on a poor donkey as solemn commentary muddles on about the passions that enslave men and women -- and then Rosie, who weighs more than the donkey, is gang-raped by Hard Case Williams' (Geoffrey Lewis) outlaws. Eventually Rosie is rescued by the tough, taciturn cowboy Abel Wood (Tab Hunter), and together they reach the miserable town of Chili Verde where the entire population, not many after all, can always be found at a saloon run by Marguerita Ventura (Lainie Kazan) and her nit-wit bouncer/gunslinger, Bernardo (Henry Silva). Abel soon discovers that the reason why the population is so interested in Marguerita's saloon has nothing to do with hard liquor -- Marguerita and Rosie each have one half of a map of buried treasure tattooed on their backsides, and everyone wants a look at the whole map. That situation introduces rather absurd bedroom farce. Viewers with a very broad if not bawdy sense of humor will most enjoy this earthy exercise in parody.

I first seen this movie some years ago and fell in love with it. From the story line to the cast members, this movie has everything a comedy should have. Divine's ahead of his/her time in every movie she's in. This movie is no exception. Lainie Kazan not only shows that she's a great actress, but she also delivers song, with a voice that will put better known singers in the shade. Tab Hunter is so cool in this movie. He did a great job directing it, too. This movie is a must see for all lovers of comedy. It's so funny! And the theme song is so addicting to the ear. You just want to listen to it over and over again. I encourage everyone to check this movie out...if you want a good laugh. Darowin ~

One of Divine's best with Tab Hunter as the handsome cowboy out to save the west. These two make such an odd couple that they fit like pieces to a puzzle. I'd rather give it ten stars. It will keep you laughing long after the movie is over
