Edie Sedgwick's screen test for Andy Warhol

Shot in 1965, six years before her death by drug overdose at 28 in 1971.

Much better MOS, the way Warhol made it.

According to Ken Johnson's December 24, 2010 New York Times story, "he shot them [his screen tests] on 16-millimeter film and showed them slightly slowed down so that they had a languid, meditative mood."

Didn't know much about her, so I read her story:
So sad, down to the lyrics of "Like a Rolling Stone". Makes one wonder about the truth behind the Warhol story...I'd love to see some of those films, or see an epic film made about her.
