Andy Warhol Chronology

back to SUMMER 1974: PAUL AMERICA VISITS THE FACTORY

Bob Colacello:

"Paul America had been a silver-Factory Superstar. Tall, blond, and handsome, he had appeared in a single movie (like Valerie Solanas), playing the title role in My Hustler, shot on Fire Island in the summer of 1965. Now, nine summers later, he was back, pressing the buzzer at 33 Union Square West, an alumnus coming to to call. He was buzzed in on the strength of his name, but the minute he came through the bullet proof door we knew it was a mistake. He was unrecognizable: huge, bearded, beer-bellied,in overalls and faded flannel shirt, wild eyes roving until they met Andy's and locked into a terrrifying stare. 'Oh, hi,' said Andy, 'gee.' Paul America stood there, staring. 'Oh,' said Andy gently, 'I'll tell Pat you're here.' He walked toward the back room as quickly as he could without running. Paul America stood there, staring at Andy's back, like a ticking time bomb. And then he turned and left. And Vincent [Fremont] shouted, 'You can come out now, Andy.' " (BC233)
