DOROTHY THE KANSAS CITY POTHEAD
Dreamland, 1968, 2 minutes
Starring Pat Moran, George Figgs, Maelcum Soul



The only remaining footage of an incomplete project, Dorothy the Kansas City Pothead stars John Waters' long-time casting agent Pat Moran in the role of Dorothy. John's obsession with the Wizard of Oz is well known, and it would have been great to see this project have a life of its own.

John Waters quoted from the book Shock Value:
"I tried to make my next film, Dorothy, the Kansas City Pothead, but it never really got off the ground. Pat Moran played Dorothy, and Maelcum was the Witch, but I soon learned that it was impossible to make a lip-sync sound film with only a camera and tape recorder. I sent out press releases anyway and got a big article in the Baltimore Sunpapers headlined, 'The Wizard of Oz Goes to Pot.'' The reporter never suspected that there wasn't even any film in my camera when he covered the making of the film."
