I got an e-mail today notifying me that there is in fact a movie in production on the life of Candy Darling. The e-mail came from a member of the production team and a friend of Candy Darling, Jeremiah Newton.
"Hello: You mentioned in your FACTORY GIRL review that someone should do something about Candy Darling. Well, we are. The documentary is called BEAUTIFUL DARLING/The Life and Times of Andy Warhol Superstar Candy Darling. We have been in production for 6 months now, and along with me, the producer is Gill Holland and the exec prod is Paul Morrissey."
