Product Description


After forming a match made in trash-movie heaven in John Waters's Polyester, Tab Hunter and Divine reunited for this deliciously tasteless Western comedy, which borrows its title from the nickname for Duel in the Sun, the turgid Western that inspired director Paul Bartel's affectionate spoofery. With Hunter wearing two hats as hero and coproducer, the movie indulges its own outrageous excess while staying true to the dustiest traditions of the Western genre. It's just good enough to watch without shame, and rude enough to hide from more offendable members of the family.

Nothing's sacred in Chile Verde, the wild western town where lone gunman Abel Wood (Hunter) arrives after rescuing corpulent saloon singer Rosie Velez (Divine) from being defiled by Hard Case Williams (Geoffey Lewis) and his gang of misfit gunslingers. Saloon owner Marguerita Ventura (Lainie Kazan) gets hot 'n' heavy for Abel's wood, and passions flare up in a race for hidden treasure, the map to which is tattooed in two sections on Rosie's and Marguerita's ample posteriors. To reveal more would spoil the wretched hilarity; one needn't love Westerns to enjoy this pig-wallow of a comedy, but it helps if you know the legacy of screen villains like Henry Silva, who's riotous here while barely shifting his vile expression. No doubt, this is the wackiest Western that ever cooked under the "blistering, burning, blazing, scorching, roasting, toasting, baking, boiling, broiling, steaming, searing, sizzling, grilling, smoldering, very hot New Mexico sun." --Jeff Shannon

1.0 out of 5 stars LUST IN THE DUST is a bust! Oct. 12 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Awful spoof of spaghetti westerns from Paul Bartel, director/ star of the cult black comedy EATING RAOUL.
At the beginning of the movie the narrator says "Those who lust in the dust, shall die in the dust". If only Divine had dropped dead in his/her first frame. If that isn't bad enough, not four minutes into the picture viewers are subjected to a Divine naked-butt shot. I thought I had a pretty strong stomach, being a fan of movies like BLOODSUCKING FREAKS and I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE, but this was disturbing!
The plot- Divine has half a treasure map tattooed on that scary tuckus of hers/his. So she and Tab Hunter set out across the desert to find the other half of the map so Divine can fulfill his/her dream of becoming a singer when they locate the booty(bad choice of word). Will viewers be spared another gratuitous not-so divine rump flashing? Is this REALLY the comedy-western to end all comedy-westerns? Not just that- LUST IN THE DUST nearly killed westerns, period. Luckily seven years later along came UNFORGIVEN; which is how the makers of this picture should remain. The talents of Lainie Kazan, Henry Silva and Caesar Romero are wasted. Do yourself a favor and check out EATING RAOUL instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars TUMBLING TUMBLEWEEDS.... Oct. 11 2002
Critics be damned. I love this movie. Paul Bartel directed two of my favorite 80's comedies---"Eating Raoul" and this. Only Bartel could have put together a cast like this in a western satire and get away with it. Lainie Kazan (a much underrated actress with fantastic comedy skills) and Divine are a perfect match for a hellcat-take-all catfight. "You're cheap!" snarls Kazan at Divine. "Cheap!?" shrieks Divine. "This FURNITURE"S cheap!" as she cracks a chair over Kazan's head. Oh, but there is much more going on here. Great location shooting, Tab Hunter as an Eastwood-type mystery drifter, two completely TASTELESS "show-stopper" style saloon numbers -one by Divine and one by Kazan, Cesar Romero as a deranged priest, the wonderful Nedra Volz as "Big Ed" and a host of other top-notch supporting players all rollicking and frolicking their way through this funny,funny movie. As I said, critics may have hated it but I recommend it for Bartel/Divine/Kazan/Hunter fans. The title was supposedly a play on the old western trash classic "Duel In The Sun"!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Drag Queen and Her Sister Vie For Tab Hunter Oct. 10 2002
"Lust in the Dust" is a low-brow comedy, directed by the masterful Paul Bartel ("Eating Raoul"), and stars Tab Hunter as the quiet gunfighter travelling to Chile Verde, NM, in search of buried gold. Rosie Velez, a refugee from a Sante Fe dance hall, played with great talent and humor by the late cross-dressing film star of the John Waters school Divine, joins him en route. Once in Chile Verde, they meet a kooky assortment of characters: Marguerita (Lainie Kazan), the owner of the town's local saloon/brothel, an insane priest played by Cesar Romero, an eighty year-old prostitute (Nedra Volz), and the leader of a gang of outlaws named Hardcase Williams (Geoffrey Lewis), among others. After a series of silly, sexual misadventures and a couple of great songs by our two lovely leading ladies, the cast tries desperately to solve a limerick and find a missing treasure map. Who will get the gold? ("Did I say 'gold'? I meant 'mold'"). Well, you'll just have to watch and find out. This silly spoof is presented on DVD in sweeping 2.35:1 aspect ratio widescreen and bright vivid colors (both of which the VHS lacks), reminiscent of the 1950s Technicolor/Cinemascope westerns it's spoofing. The best scene by far is the barroom brawl between Divine and Lainie--that scene alone makes this film worth watching. There is also a nicely done "making-of" featurette and the trailer. This movie is not for everyone, but if you're in the mood for a lightweight film with some good raunchy laughs, you should give this one a try.

4.0 out of 5 stars Chile Verde Revisited April 2 2001
Being a huge fan of late greats Divine and Paul Bartel, I've been a fan of this film for many years. I just purchased the DVD edition of this film and was pleasantly surprised by the packaging and information on this disk. The menus are adorned with huge, scary close-ups of Divine's face with the Lust in the Dust theme song playing over the menu selections. It's pretty great! But, best of all, is the 16 minute featurette, More Lust Less Dust which features interviews with stars Tab Hunter and Lainie Kazan as well as other people related with the project. They talk about the fun atmosphere and location shooting (highlighted with stills and home movies) and feature many rare images of Divine and Bartel. The most interesting aspect in the documentary was the discussion of how they wanted to keep the film from being a "John Waters film without John Waters" and the very surprising footage of Edith Massey's screen test for the film! Ultimately, she wasn't used. All in all, a great and funny disc (and at times a touching tribute) that wonderfully displays many of the talents of these two talented (and underestimated) men; Divine and Paul Bartel. We will miss them!

5.0 out of 5 stars It lives up to the Water's genre and is ... funny June 12 2001
Format:VHS Tape
John Water's became a cult classic guy with Polyester, and Tab Hunter and Divine the drag queen bi-sexual gay guy, are back in this take off of the Duel In The Sun classic. And ... this is a funny movie. Tab Hunter whom some may not remember from the 50's and 60's (but should get reacquainted with ) plays a cowboy in Chile Verde, a gritty and dusty wild western town.
If you have ever seen Divine who plays Rosie Velez you will see how this rolly polly borderline ... character can come off so ... funny. Lainie Kazan plays a lusty busty saloon owner named Marguerita Ventura . Now the basics of the movie are Rosies and Marguerita's ample ... which hold part of a map to hidden treasure.
And if you can invision what the guys will do to get a look at the maps and the surprises involved with some really funny outhouse and bar room scenes then you will know why this and all of Mr Water's movies are a must own.

I did not enjoy this movie at all. Poor story and poor acting. Don't buy this piece of crap.

5.0 out of 5 stars LUST IN THE DUST is a wicked must!
One of the funniest films of the 1980's. By far Paul Bartel's best work. Seeing Divine sing THESE LIPS ARE MADE FOR KISSIN' is worth the price of the DVD.
