Vintage poster for the world premiere of Andy Warhol's seminal films, VINYL and POOR LITTLE RICH GIRL at Jonas Mekas' Filmmakers' Cinematheque. Photo-illustrated with a repeating image of Edie Sedgwick and Gerard Malanga, "[t]he poster's typewrit- ten descriptions of these Warhol films as 'cinema verite,' 'pop art,' and his 'first nonstatic film' denote an attempt to place underground cinema in a more mainstream genre of film. Its childlike drawing of a butterfly is reminiscent of the butterflies Warhol drew in the 1950s when he worked as a commercial illustrator" (MarÈchal p. 29). Variously cited as either Warhol's most or least "entertaining" film, VINYL is an experimental adaptation of Anthony Burgess' A CLOCKWORK ORANGE (for which Warhol legitimately paid $3000 for rights), adapted by regular Factory collaborator Ronald Tavel, and featuring songs by The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Isley Brothers, and others. Shot by Warhol and Malanga in Edie Sedgwickís apartment, POOR LITTLE RICH GIRL was Sedgwickís first speaking and starring role in a Warhol film. Conceived as a day-in-the-life of the Factory superstar and at least conceptually autobiographical, IMDB's description of the story seems to sum up its intentions best: "A young, jobless woman stays in bed, reads, talks on the phone, smokes cigarettes, makes fresh cof- fee, and tries on some clothes from a large wardrobe." [MarÈchal 4].
