John Waters and David Lynch meet outside of Bob’s Big Boy restaurant in Los Angeles, 1979.
“Lynch had been with John Waters earlier on the day of the interview and almost got him to join us. David later provided me with a copy of his short film ‘The Amputee,’ also shot by Elmes, which we screened following the interview on one TV set outside on the UCLA campus — a world premier. The interview ends on one of the great lines from David Lynch, who said he wasn’t interested in Hollywood stars at the time: ‘If you’re going into the netherworld, you don’t want to go in with Chuck Heston.’” —Tom Christie
