Although next to impossible to find, unless you find some early Warhol excerpt clips, see stock footage in Superstar, or are researching Warhol cinema, The 13 Most Beautiful Boys in the World is a testament to the experiments Andy was trying.
A product of The Factory, Andy intimates in many interviews that the reason he started making films of this nature was that they were "easier than painting. The camera has a motor. You just turn it on and walk away."
