"Polyester" (1981) is an American comedy directed by John Waters that is set in Baltimore, Maryland. It tells of the woes of a fat suburban housewife, Francine Fishpaw. Her husband, who runs a porn theater, is cheating on her and her teenage children are out of control. Francine also has an unusually keen sense of smell, which is exploited in Odorama, a "scratch-and-sniff" gimmick. Special numbered cards would be given to audiences, who were expected to scratch the appropriate number when it flashed on screen. Scents included roses, glue, skunk and pizza.
