Andy Warhol Chronology

back to SPRING 1971: HOLLY WOODLAWN IS FILMED FOR WOMEN IN REVOLT

During the filming of Women In Revolt, Jackie Curtis refused to perform unless Andy Warhol was actually doing the filming. In preparation for the shoot, Warhol put the film in the camera backwards, but fortunately, Paul Morrissey noticed it before they actually started filming. (UV134)

Holly Woodlawn’s first scene was with Martin Kove who played the boyfriend from whom she wanted independence. Martin Kove would later become part of the cast of the television series, Cagney and Lacey. He had no idea who or what Holly Woodlawn was, having just come out of the military service. Holly had no idea what the film was about, thinking it was about lesbianism - not feminism. (HW184)

During the filming, Holly Woodlawn was intimidated by both Candy Darling and Jackie Curtis who “always dominated the scenes” and Holly began to drink heavily. When Candy told Holly that she was upset by her behaviour and Candy’s manager asked Woodlawn to quit harrassing his client, Holly physically attacked both Candy Darling and her manager. They were eventually pulled apart by Rita Redd and Jackie. (HW187-8)

The filming turned into an “insane folly” of booze and drugs with Jackie, Candy, Rita, Estelle and Baby Betty “piled into a bathroom, downing glasses of wine... and shooting up speed” while doing their hair and faces before filming the scene where Holly ended upside down in a wheelchair having sex with a complete stranger. (HW189)
