Summary: This special film presents the first major profile of Andy Warhol's life and work since his death in February 1987 and includes some previously unseen footage of the artist, shot in London shortly before his death. Warhol's was the classic American rags to riches story: he was born in the industrial slums of Pittsburgh - the child of poor Czeh immigrants. He grew up dreaming of Hollywood stars and eventually became a star himself, famous for his Pop Art (his "Campbell's Soup Can" being the most enduring image), his bizarre underground films and for being a celebrity who for 20 years attended every party in town. He was the joker they said who would turn up for the opening of an envelope. This film shows Warhol performing for the media in interviews ranging over 25 years and examines hi artistic achievements in a career which spanned painting, film, publishing rock music and television. It includes extracts from films such as Chelsea Girls, Lonesome Cowboys and Women in Revolt, archive material, newsreel footage and contributions from many of his closest associates and superstars including Ondine, Viva, john Giorno and Bridgit Berlin
