LUPE (1965)—the last feature Edie Sedgwick shot for Andy Warhol—features his most notorious superstar playing herself in an art-meets-life portrayal of Lupe Vélez, the stage and screen actress known as the “Mexican Spitfire” who died at age 36 after an overdose of Seconal and brandy. (Edie made it to age 28.)
The film—a double-screen projection—co-stars Factory regular Billy Name and will screen this week at USC.
