Storyline

Joe Spencer, a member of a motorcycle gang, is taking a shower. After his bout with personal hygiene, Joe encounters Andy Warhol's "superstars," who engage him in conversation. The superstars crack jokes he doesn't understand and continually correct his poor pronunciation in an attempt to deflate his machismo. In response to these provocations, Joe becomes more obscene and more boasting, but ultimately, he cannot compete with the put-downs that are part of the put-on performances of the Warhol superstars, who prevail over him in the end.

Hi

Brigid Berlin is funny in this and I liked it a lot. It's interesting to hear about the star's "born to lose" tattoo and all of the cast's comments on it. Including Ingrid Superstar's. It's also funny to see Ingrid throw herself at him, while he looks straight ahead, never once even glancing at her!
