  • Paul Morrissey began making underground short films in the early 1960s, and soon became a production assistant for Andy Warhol. He was the cameraman on several Warhol films, including Lonesome Cowboys; the two co-directed the transvestite comedy Women in Revolt and L'Amour (1973). With Warhol as producer, Morrissey made several outstanding films starring Joe Dallesandro, most notably his early comedies Flesh (1968), Trash (1970), and Heat (1972), and the stylish horror films Andy Warhol's Frankenstein (aka Flesh For Frankenstein [1974]) and Andy Warhol's Dracula (aka Blood For Dracula [1974]). Morrissey's major works on his own include his offbeat tales of teenage hustlers (Forty Deuce [1982]) and drug pushers (Mixed Blood [1984]), the historical drama Beethoven's Nephew (1985), and the comedy Spike of Bensonhurst (1988).
