Edie Sedgwick, Andy's druggie socialite "muse," and a real girl, wasdead by 1971. Among the "chicks with dicks" who gathered at the second,Union Square version of Andy Warhol's Factory, Candy Darling was themost ethereal and beautiful and pure, it seems from this documentary,which recounts her short life. She died of lymphatic cancer beforereaching the age of thirty, already by then cast off by Andy, who usedHolly Woodlawn and Jackie Curtis in later films. One of the manyphotographers who lensed her, Peter Hujar did a glamorous portrait ofCandy on her hospital deathbed, garlanded with roses and stillperfectly made up.

This documentary's existence is due to the devotion of Candy Darling'sclosest male friend, Jeremiah Newton, prominently featured and also aproducer. He still carries the flame, and Beautiful Darling isbook-ended by his arranging for Candy's ashes to be buried along withhis (Jeremiah's) mother's, under a tombstone for them and, when histime comes, Jeremiah himself. Back in the day, he attached himself toCandy Darling when he was only sixteen and when she had a preferredplace in the Factory and the Factory hangout Max's Kansas City.

Newton approached James Raisin (who's made films about the Beats andwritten stuff about Mapplethorpe and Patti Smith and a screenplay forAbel Ferrara about Warhol) with piles of memorabilia about Candy andinterview tapes he made right after her death with people who knew her.He also had archival film footage. Raisin has woven together all theserecords and his own recent interviews with some germane and oftenpungent talking heads, including Fran Lebowitz, Glenn O'Brien, TaylorMead, Bob Colacello, John Waters, Gerald Malanga, Paul Morrissey, HollyWoodlawn, Pat Hackett, George Abagnalo, and Sam Green, among others, tomake Beautiful Darling an excellent record of the person and thecontext and another valid entry in the collection of cinematicWarholobilia. There is lots of good and appropriate music, and forreadings of letters and statements, Chloe Sevigny does the voice ofCandy Darling.

She was originally Jimmy or James Slattery, and as we're told in LouReed's famous song "Walk on the Wild Side," which describes the "chickwith dicks" Andy used and threw away, "Candy came from out on theIsland," Long Island, that is, from a flat monotonous development inForest Hills.

Candy came from out on the Island/In the backroom she was everybody'sdarlin'/But she never lost her head/Even when she was giving head/Shesays, Hey babe/Take a walk on the wild side/I Said, Hey baby/Take awalk on the wild side/And the coloured girls go/Doo do doo do doo do dodoo...' While Edie Sedgwick was born a real girl, Holly Woodlawn, CandyDarling, and Jackie Curtis were among the various trannies who gatheredat the Factory. 'Take a walk on the wild side' was a come-on toprospective johns, meaning, Have sex with a transvestite prostitute.But what we learn from Beautiful Darling is that the Warhol Factorygirls weren't all alike.

No one worked harder at being a girl than Candy, but not just at beinga girl -- at being glamorous and beautiful, inspired by memories ofForties screen divas seen in TV movies and dreams of Hollywood fame.She didn't always necessarily say much, except when performingsomebody's lines, always in that special breathy feminine voice of thedrag queen (or Marilyn). She was in Warhol's Flesh and Women in Revolt.Candy used her Warhol film fame to land other screen appearances, andTennessee Williams, who was among her admirers, cast her in his play,Small Craft Warnings. (Warhol, in one of the clips, says he was makingmovies because it was easier than painting.) It was not only hard workbut dangerous work. Back in the Sixties it was illegal in New York fora man to be on the street dressed as a woman. They could be hauled offby the cops just for wearing heavy mascara, so the trannies carriedtheir dresses in shopping bags and slipped their gear on slowly tillnight came, and it was safer. (Agosto Machado tells us about this.)Beautiful Darling shows us hints of Candy's Jimmy Slattery origins,including a still of the then boy of 14 or so stretched on a chaiselongue in shorts, showing long, sleek ivory gams. It's strange to seeJeremiah, who like not a few of the former Warhol beauties, is a biglimping blob of a person now, as a wraith-like androgynous beautyhimself, when with Candy. But in a self-penned obit, Candy mentionspoor Jeremiah way down in her list of people she loved and owed it allto.

John Waters is always a sharp voice, but Fran Lebowitz, is the treasurehere. Not just she but Andy himself says Candy should not lose thepenis. She just wouldn't be the same. Apparently she and Newton werenot a couple and she had no man in her life. The film ends with theline that to be true to yourself is the greatest morality. But asLebowitz points out, a transsexual who becomes female never had agirlhood. And so Candy, though wonderfully successful at being aglamorous mirage, found it terribly hard work. Fran points out realwomen don't work so hard all the time. And so it is artificial, andexhausting, and Candy was ready to die of cancer. When the tumor wasfound, it ushered in one of her greatest roles, that of a tragic earlydeath.

Beautiful Darling had its world premiere at the Berlinale in February2010, showed at the BFI Lesbian and Gay Film Festival in London inMarch, and will be presented as part of the New Directors/New Filmsseries of the Film Society of Lincoln Center and the Museum of ModernArt, April 2, 2010 at MoMA and April 3 at the Walter Reade Theater.
