I'd Like to See It Again
30 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The young hustler, on the beach and in the doorway of the bathroom is Paul Johnson.

He had been a member of the Piscataway Twp. High School class of 1962, a jock, if you will, the featured running fullback on the football team. Paul was likable yet stand-offish.

He disappeared in our senior year, apparently sent by his parents to a prep school.

I didn't see him again until sometime in 1965, perhaps the summer. I had caught a Suburban Transit bus to New York City and there he was. Sat down next to him and chatted a bit, a very small bit and did learn that he "was in films" but it was all very vague. The 45-minute ride didn't reveal much more.

A few months later, wandering the Times Square area looking for something to do on a Saturday night, I bought a ticket for this Warhol film, screened in what must have once been a large storage room in a non-descript office building.

I watched fascinated as the camera focused on my former classmate. All sorts of questions tripped through my mind. Was this acting? Was it real life filmed? A combination of both? I would have liked to talk with Paul but never got the chance. Someone said he had taken his life not too long afterward.
