Trivia

Warhol veteran Joe Dallesandro was originally cast in the role of Stanley Sweetheart. Dallesandro was fired when he would consistently arrive on the set late and cause trouble with the cast and crew. Ironically, Andy Warhol himself later referred to the film as "the quintessential, most truthful studio-made film about the '60s counterculture". See more »

first impression
3 February 2004 | by darostSee all my reviews

I saw this movie in 1970 in Philadelphia when it was first released as the second part of a double feature, following Fellini Satyricon. The comment I made when I left the theater (I had graduated from high school only a few days earlier) was, "They co-opted the revolution." If that sentence makes sense to you then you'll understand my reaction. If it doesn't, I can't explain.

Peace! David
