RADIO // Beyond the Subtitles60th Berlin Film Festival: James Rasin, Beautiful Darling
Hosted by Stephen Schaefer
Originally aired 2/26/10
Beautiful Darling, James Rasin's revealing, affectionate documentary on Candy Darling, the Warhol superstar who modeled herself on Hollywood's iconic blondes Kim Novak and Marilyn Monroe, boasts archival footage with Candy--born James Slattery--as well as Warhol, Tennessee Williams and Dennis Hopper. It was Lou Reed who toasted her in his Walk on the Wild Side. Darling was 29 when she died in 1974, with a deathbed scene that evoked Novak's in The Eddy Duchin Story, the 1956 movie that inspired a young boy to grow up and become someone fabulous (27 minutes).
