CANDY DARLING (1944 – 1974) CANDY DARLING was – and remains – best known for her roles in two films produced by Andy Warhol and directed by Paul Morrissey, “Flesh” (1968), and “Women in Revolt” (1972). She was, however, in a number of other noteworthy independent films, including “Brand X” (Win Chamberlain, 1970), “Some of My Best Friends Are” (Mervyn Nelson, 1971) and “The Death of Maria Malibran” (Werner Schroeter, 1972). Known for her beauty, wit, and talent, Darling was also a sought-after actress in off and off-off Broadway productions of the sixties and seventies, best known for her work in plays by Jackie Curtis and Tom Eyen, and for appearing in the role of Violet in Tennessee Williams’ “Small Craft Warnings.” Born a male, and having lived the latter part of her life as a woman, Darling is now celebrated as a pioneer among transgendered communities worldwide. She is the subject of the documentary “Beautiful Darling” (2010), produced by Jeremiah Newton and directed by James Rasin.

Clayton Patterson has created a series of five Sunday Salons for the BMW Guggenheim Lab. This week, join Jeremiah Newton, playwright and executor of the estate of Candy Darling—one of Andy Warhol’s superstars—as he shares anecdotes about Warhol’s Factory and its legacy. A native New Yorker, for the past 20 years Mr. Newton has served as the film industry liaison for New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. In 2009 he produced the feature-length documentary Beautiful Darling, which premiered at the Berlinale and at New Directors/New Films at Lincoln Center and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. He was also a writer of the 1996 indie I Shot Andy Warhol. His new play, StarDusk, is based on his experiences with Candy Darling, and takes place on closing night of a production of Tennessee Williams’ Small Craft Warnings. Newton is the recipient of the Hamptons International Film Festival’s 2010 Golden Starfish Award, and the prize for Best Documentary at the 2010 Chicago International Film Festival.
