Product description

Product Description

Beautiful Darling pays tribute to the short but extraordinary life of actress Candy Darling, Although born a man she was drawn to the feminine from childhood and by the mid-Sixties James had become Candy, a blonde actress and well-known New York character. There she became close to Andy Warhol and starred in two of his movies. Candy used her Warhol fame to land further film roles, but tragically she died of lymphoma at only twenty-nine. The film uses both current and previous interviews, excerpts from Candy's own diaries and letters to explain her life. The films explore the glamorous parties, the famous friends and most of all the strength of will she demonstrated in her remarkable act of self-creation.
