                                                      Mink Stole in "Stuck!"

The first time she met him in Provincetown in the early '60s, Mink Stole had no inkling John Waters would become such a celebrated director. Nor did the 63-year-old actress have any idea she'd become his muse, appearing in more than a dozen of his films, from "Mondo Trasho" to "Hairspray" to "Fruitcake." For her work in those movies and many others, Stole will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award tonight from the Boston Underground Film Festival. "It makes me feel ancient, like they think I'm done, and I'm not," she told us. "It's not an Oscar, but it's still a very very nice honor." Stole's latest film, which screens tonight at the Kendall Square Cinema, is called "Stuck!" Stole costars with Karen Black and former Go-Go Jane Wiedlin, and plays the longest-serving female prisoner on death row. "It's a drama, but some people are calling it campy," Stole said with a sigh. "People always call me a campy actress, but I think that's just because I worked with drag queens."
