Joe Dallesandro

1. – Don Johnson, The Magic Garden of Stanley Sweetheart, 1969. MGM goes Warhol. Or nearly… The New York Times reported the film of Robert T Westbrook’s semi-autobiographical novel would star four Factory stars – Joe, the transexual Candy Darling, Gerard Malanga and Ultra Violet. Never happened! Andy, himself, passed on playing a freaked-out shrink. He later praised Johnson’s debut as “the quintessential, most truthful studio-made film about the ’60s counterculture.” Oh, I must have seen another Stanley Sweetheart… without lines like: “Hi!” “No, but we’re working on it.”
