Poor Little Rich Girl was originally conceived as part of a series of films featuring Edie Sedgwick which Warhol started shooting in March 1965 called The Poor Little Rich Girl Saga. It included Restaurant, Face, and Afternoon, as well as this film. The title is the same as a 1936 movie starring Shirley Temple who Andy idolized in his childhood. (FAW20)
The film takes place in Edie’s apartment. Andy and Gerard Malanga shot two rolls (approx. 70 mins) of Edie as “she lay on her bed, talked on the phone and walked around her room, showing off her clothes and describing how she had spent her entire inheritance in six months.” (L&D221)
Nice review of Poor Little Rich Girl by Richard Foreman found on the amazing Warhol Film Ads website. I thought Culture of Scarcity vs Culture of Abundance was a 21st c. concept, but in his review Foreman dives into all that in 1966!
That’s as much of the review as they had on the Warhol Film Ads website. Has anyone ever seen the rest of it?
