“On a farm near Hampstead, a block-long set costing $7,000 was built for Mortville, the queen’s ragtag capital in ‘Desperate Living.’ The set also included the wicken queen’s castle.”
Notes from back of photo: “Worker dismantling the Town of Mortville, a set built for John Waters’ film. At the far back is the wicked queen’s castle. In the foreground stands a statue of Queen Carlotta, modeled after Edith Massey, who plays the role of the queen.” Photographer: Hutchins.
