Ladies and Gentlemen, the Fabulous Stains

Buy Tickets

(1982) dir Lou Adler w/Diane Lane, Laura Dern, Christine Lahti, Peter Donat [87 min; 35mm]
Seventeen-year-old orphan Corinne (Lane) chucks her job flipping burgers, discovers eyeliner, and becomes a counterculture icon as Third Degree, frontwoman for the eponymous skunkhaired garage girl-band whose motto is “We don’t put out.” – BAM Cinématek

“In a 2010 profile for the Boston Globe, Janice Page described Diane Lane as ‘the closest thing we have today to Grace Kelly, with a chaser of Pat Benatar.’ This parallel between the distinguished Oscar nominee and the tough-yet-vulnerable arena rock siren might seem out of left field, until you consider Lane’s surprising rock and roll cred. In her third onscreen appearance, Lane earned an infinite amount of punk points with her portrayal of Corinne ‘Third Degree’ Burns, the lead singer of the title band in LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE FABULOUS STAINS.

Chelsea Spear writes about Diane Lane as Corrine Burns in “Not Just Another Girl Lining Up To Die,” for Brattle Film Notes. Read more
