Photo of Paul Morrissey and Joe Dallesandro on the set of "Flesh"
New York: Factory Films, 1968. Vintage black-and-white double weight still photograph of director Paul Morrissey and actor Joe Dallesandro, shot during the making of Andy Warhol's 1968 film "Flesh." Photographer Werner Bokelberg's rubber stamp and holograph pencil annotations to the verso.
Morrissey's first production for Warhol, Dallesandro's second leading role, and an intentionally envelope-pushing film, Dallesandro plays a bisexual prostitute who tricks in order to fund his wife's lover's abortion. "Flesh" was considered so explicit that it was confiscated by the police in 1970 during one of its early screenings, and features an overabundance of scenes that depict our main character's genitalia.
The two would work together on five more Warhol films following "Flesh," including "Lonesome Cowboys," and "Heat."
