1967–68. USA. Directed by Andy Warhol. Cinematography by Paul Morrissey. With Viva, Joe Dallesandro. A Western comedy/drama shot on location in Tucson, Arizona. This small town's population consists of a transvestite sheriff, a rich lady rancher named Ramona Alvarez, her male nurse who expertly dances the twist, and five lonesome cowboys who fixate on their hair, practice ballet on a hitching post, engage in amorous activities, and discuss the loneliness that makes them "love themselves more than anyone else." 109 min.
