Not screened since 1972, this film demonstrates Warhol’s fascination for the inventor of vinyl light-up mini-dresses and her celebration of all things silver. Filmed in early 1967 at the Teeny Weeny, her plastic space-age boutique, Warhol’s camera work is striking, with many interruptive pans, rapid strobe cuts and focus pulls. The film was shot on jewel-like Ektachrome reversal stock.
During the To Save and Protect festival at New York’s MoMA, the full title used was Andy Warhol’s Tiger Morse (Reel 14 of ****), as this same footage was later inserted in the equally rarely screened 25-hour Warhol epic ****(Four Stars).
The newly preserved print is part of a larger mission: The Films of Andy Warhol Catalogue Raisonné Volume II, an undertaking of The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. Screened together with Interior. Leather Bar.
