Lacking a formal narrative, Warhol's art house classic follows various residents of the Chelsea Hotel in 1966 New York City, presented in a split screen with a single audio track in conjunction with one side of screen.
Ronald Tavel's THE LIFE OF JUANITA CASTRO is one of Andy Warhol's triumphs as a filmmaker. A playwright (Tavel himself) taunts a number of actors into improvising a truly ridiculous but ... See full synopsis »

Jean Harlow look-alike Harlot (Mario Montez), Gerard Malanga, Philip Fagan, and Carol Koshinskie (with a cat) sit in a room eating bananas as the off-screen voices of Billy Name, Ronald Tavel, and Harry Fainlight discuss various topics.

Warhol had a stage in his film-making career where is appropriated names from golden age movies that he must have been enthralled with as a child. Warhol during this brief cycle attempted to film depictions of off-screen lives of some of his most fondly remembered stars. Films like HEDY (1965), HARLOT (1964), LUPE (1965), and MORE MILK EVETTE (1965) showed us what it was like to be these stars out of the limelight, lounging around at home.
'More milk Evette' is about Lana Turner, played by a notorious drag queen named Mario Montez, need I say more?
This film was made before Chelsea girls and does not have any of the great characters in it that make a Warhol film watchable. This film originally premiered at the factory but was projected on the wall with another film. This was done during a time when Warhol was experimenting with multi-projections of his films. A number of Warhol's films were shown sometimes in single projections, sometimes in double, sometimes superimposition's; or to confuse the matter even more he would take two 30 min films and play them side by side to create one 60 min film.
