MY HUSTLER

1965 / 67min / 16mm

DIRECTOR: ANDY WARHOL AND CHUCK WEIN

CAST: PAUL AMERICA, JOSEPH CAMPBELL, GENEVIEVE CHARBON

Warhol’s camp tour de force concerns an idle competition on an empty summer day between tartly monologuing middle-aged queen Ed Weiner, his female Fire Island neighbor, and aging male prostitute, “The Sugar Plum Fairy,” for the attentions of peroxide-blonde “Dial-a-Hustler” hunk Paul America, ogled from the veranda. Bitchy, bitter, and among the flat-out funniest of Warhol productions.
