Trivia

Filmed in 1971 before Bette Midler's career as The Divine Miss M took off, this is an underground religious satire originally titled "The Greatest Story Overtold". Unreleased for several years, it finally had a brief theatrical run in New York City in 1974 under a new title "The Divine Mr. J" (Mr. J supposedly referring to Jesus), suggesting that the now famous Midler, who had a minor role as The Virgin Mary, was the star. Following legal threats from Midler's camp and horrific reviews, the movie quickly disappeared, but briefly turned up on home video in early Eighties (only to quickly disappear once more, again amidst legal threats) under new title The Thorn, in an attempt to cash in on Midler's mainstream hit The Rose (1979).

Worst film ever made... lower than hard-core pornography
13 May 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A pathetic waste of time. Poorly acted, really bad sound, and full of blasphemy and insult. I didn't think the film was funny at all although I stomach to watch all of it. It debuted shown here in Melbourne Australia and by half-time most of the patrons had walked out of the cinema in disgust. In fact there was almost a riot when people demanded their money back but the staff from the cinema had ran off in fear and the film was axed. The patrons never got a refund. The story hit the front page of the newspapers. This woman and her cohorts who made a mockery out of Jesus should have thought how they would feel if someone made a film making a joke of the holocaust.
