Warhol Screen Test :: Dennis Hopper 1964

In 1964, Hopper did three screen tests at the Factory: ST153, ST154 & ST155. In his screen tests, Hopper doesn’t sit still and is found smoking a cigar at the end of the video, but in each it is clear how Warhol manipulated light during his screen tests and tried to show the individuality of Hopper.

Hopper on his screen tests: “I was in another film that Andy did called The 13 Most Beautiful Boys in the World… Andy just told me the title and turned on the camera and walked away… Being the egomaniac that I am, I sat there and did a Strasbergian emotional memory”.
