In 1966, screen legend Hedy Lamarr was arrested in Los Angeles for shoplifting $21.48 worth of laxative tablets and eye drops. That same year, Andy Warhol, screenwriter Ronald Tavel and an amazing ensemble cast created the 66-minute Hedy, a camp reenactment, including arrest, interrogation, trial, execution and plastic surgical transformation. Representing the pinnacle of Warhol’s “superstar” phase of filmmaking, Hedy features the gloriously oblivious Mario Montez in the starring role with Mary Woronov as the fabulously antagonistic sadomasochistic store detective. Gerard Malanga, Jack Smith, Ingrid Superstar and Ronald Tavel also appear. Soundtrack composed by John Cale and Lou Reed.
