Warhol/Hopper films @Egyptian Theatre
In conjunction with the Tribute to Dennis Hopper and the Dennis Hopper show at MOCA, Filmforum is screening two of Andy Warhol’s films that feature Dennis Hopper. Screen Tests Reel #4 (1964-65, 16mm, app. 40 min, silent, b&w, 18 fps) has ten screen tests including two with Hopper, filmed in 1964. Tarzan and Jane Regained... Sort of (1964, 80 min, 16mm, color, sound), directed by Warhol, featuring Taylor Mead as Tarzan, Naomi Levine as Jane, Dennis Hopper, Irving Blum, Brooke Howard , and Andy Warhol in Warhol’s rarely-seen film shot in Los Angeles in October 1963 while he was in town for his second show at the Ferus Gallery. The end result is a chaotic romp with Taylor Meade and a fantastic portrait of Los Angeles in 1963. 7:30 p.m. @Egyptian Theatre.
