In the heyday of Andy Warhol's legendary hub of art, subculture, and insanity known as the Factory, one performer made his mark like no other: Jackie Curtis. A wildly creative, avant-garde performer, poet, playwright, and longtime friend and collaborator of Warhol's, Curtis was well known as a cross-dressing phenom whose personal life went even further and was even wilder than anything onstage and onscreen. In this loving, dazzling, and, above all else, shocking memorial to Curtis--who died tragically of a drug overdose in 1985--filmmaker Craig Highberger delivers a fascinating oral biography of the drag queen, including interviews with such counterculture luminaries as Holly Woodlawn, Joe Dallesandro, Paul Morrissey, and Michael Musto. DVD includes producer/director Highberger's award-winning documentary film Superstar in a Housedress, narrated by Lily Tomlin.--Publisher description (of book).
