Harry Dean Stanton,
This is the first Andy Warhol film that the transvestite Holly Woodlawn appeared in. Holly was only supposed to be in one scene, but the rushes were so good, Morrissey asked her back to do more. She was paid the usual acting fee for a Warhol film: $25.00 a day. When they finished shooting her footage, Holly celebrated by using her final payment of $25.00 on heroin. See more »
It don't do anything, Geri.

After Flesh, this is the second of the Flesh-Trash-Heat trilogy of the Joe Dallessandro-Andy Warhol-Paul Morrissey collaboration. This is much more pacier than Flesh, and it has more solid conversation although obviously the actors have again been left on their own to improvise. The context is much more specifically set than Flesh again (thanks to better editing I guess), and the mood is darker and gloomier.
The transvestite Holly Woodlawn is truly grand as the lost and desperate girlfriend who is helplessly in love with the impotent drug addict Joe.
Trash is also more critical about the state of the American nation in the 60's.
