(Andy Warhol, 1966).
The Warhol factory version of a Hollywood Babylon scandal, loosely based on a Ronald Tavel script, stars Mario Montez as Imitation of Life star Lana Turner, with Richard Schmidt playing her 14-year-old daughter Cheryl—who took the rap for fatally stabbing Lana’s lover, gangster Johnny Stompanato. Of course, this being a Warhol film, the camera is static and the action largely verbal.
