Trivia

The New York Times reported in October 1969 that 'Sweetheart' had been cast with Ultra Violet, Candy Darling, Gerard Malanga, and was to feature Andy Warhol in his very first Hollywood film role, that of a "freaked-out psychiatrist." This obviously didn't happen. See more »

A little gem.
28 May 2003 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

At university I was part-time apsirant film-maker, part-time aspirant womaniser, and full-time aimless waster. Unsurprisingly this film struck a huge chord with me, when I stumbled across it during those bewildering days!

A great little film, lots of fun, just don't expect any niceties like, erm, a recognisable plot or a meaningful ending. The film-within-a-film - Stanley's outrageously bad student short "Headless" - is a real hoot and worth the price on its own!

Oh and if you like this, check out student rebellion in "The Strawberry Statement" and more of the young Don Johnson in "A boy and his dog", both recommended.
