Warhol/Hopper Films by Andy Warhol featuring Dennis Hopper
Screen Tests Reel #4 (1964-65, 16mm, app. 40 min, silent, b&w, 18 fps) ten screen tests including two with Hopper, filmed in 1964
Tarzan and Jane Regained... Sort of (1964, 80 min, 16mm, color, sound), directed by Warhol, featuring Taylor Mead as Tarzan, Naomi Levine as Jane, Dennis Hopper, IrvinG Blum, Brooke Howard , and Andy Warhol in Warhol's rarely-seen film shot in Los Angeles in October 1963 while he was in town for his second show at the Ferus Gallery.
Warhol and his entourage (including Wynn Chamberlain, Taylor Mead and Gerard Malanga) drove to L.A. to see his second exhibition at the Ferus Gallery.
As Andy and Gerard did not know how to drive, Taylor and Wynn shared the driving. Although Andy had been around the world once in the fifties, he'd never been west of Pennsylvania in the U.S. (POP35)
While in Los Angeles, they were joined by Warhol's first superstar Naomi Levine and shot scenes for TARZAN AND JANE REGAINED, SORT OF... including around the bathtub of their suite at the Beverly Hills Hotel. -- http://www.warholstars.org/chron/1963.html#tarzan
