Topic: Holly Woodlawn


  
  Holly Woodlawn - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Holly Woodlawn (born October 26, 1946) was a Warhol superstar, who appeared in his movies Trash (1970) and Women in Revolt (1972).
Holly Woodlawn continued to make cameo appearances in plays and movies throughout the 1980s and after Warhol's death was a frequently requested commentator on his life and influence.
Woodlawn began performing in cabaret shows, incorporating stories of her life with songs that she felt reflected her life, in sold-out New York and Los Angeles performances, in the early 2000s.

Curtis' influence on a number of people, friends and associates such as Holly Woodlawn, Joe Dallesandro and Penny Arcade, and observers such as David Bowie, is noted in the film.
However, it was perhaps her bravery in gender transgressions, unfamiliar territory to most until recent academics such as Judith Butler began writing on the topic, that is Jackie Curtis' legacy.

Darling is a willowy blonde with a breathless voice; Curtis is a sassy brunette straight from the Bronx; and Woodlawn is an outrageous raven-haired vixen almost nominated for an Oscar the year before for "Trash".

In her memoir, Woodlawn wrote that she felt intimidated by Darling and Curtis who just dominated every scene and thus she handed the movie over to them.
