Awesome fly-on-the-wall footage from 1970, featuring TOUT LE Warhol crowd in the back room of the legendary Max’s Kansas City (which was across the street from the Union Square Factory). In it, we see a clearly-out-of-her-mind Brigid Polk toddling around with her shirt off, titties waving in the wind, lipstick smeared, yelling at the camera – before she plants the most unwanted kiss EVER on a random socialite. Then the camera pans the room and we see factory regulars/underground celebrities Gerard Malanga (at the :40 mark), Taylor Mead (at 1:34), Candy Darling (1:35), and Robert Mapplethorpe with his bestie Patti Smith. It’s literally like taking a time machine back to a more fabulous era. I could watch this all day.
