Fabulous and Divine
4 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of my all-time favorite Divine comedies. A true must for any western fan. And Tab Hunter is absolutely gorgeous! Loved the musical numbers, especially, my personal favorite, Lainie Kazan singing, "Let Me Take You South Of My Border." Definitely one of the best films Paul Bartel has directed. The actors obviously had a blast making this movie. I think its better than the team of Tab Hunter and Divine in Polyester. Shot on location in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Lust In the Dust is a satirical reminder of what westerns are supposed to be. I must have seen this film a dozen times and it never loses its magic. Check out the DVD Anniversary edition which has a great documentary on the making of the movie.
