Wow - she looks beautiful but she's so smart too; I loved when she answered Merv about the value of Pop Art, "what we see around us everyday, but then to see it on canvas makes us think" - exactly. What a sweetie, and that smile is just Awwwwwww.

Thanks for posting!

^ Yup- all I could think of was 'If I met her at a party I would fall hopelessly in love with her!!" Andy seemed to almost lean on her- I wonder if we ever did get the real story about what happened between them...

Great Edie footage! She's so sweet! I wonder if Merv was smart enough to buy a Warhol...

^ Yeah- who would have thought!! The gallery owner in LA who put on Andy's first ever show bought 10 of his Campbell's Soup Can paintings for $1,000!!! Seems it was too much trouble to ship them back to New York....can you even imagine what they are worth now!! Andy never did do a painting of Edie, did he?

I had always suspected that he was in love with her. Just the way he looks at her in the pictures i've seen. And i think she just had found him a dear friend and in the end - thats why he couldn't be there for her, he was angry. (My speculations only lol :p)

I think everyone who was at the factory at the time said it was because of money. Edie's parents finally cut her off and she needed money. Andy wouldn't pay her so they had a falling out.

^ I think you may both be right...Andy was notorious for being incredibly cheap and inconsiderate of others needs in the 'real world' (i.e.- outside of The Factory and his well financed reality!) and he may well have been falling in love with her- and that may have shocked him and upset his commitment to a gay lifestyle...There was also the speculation that Andy thought Edie would be his ticket to Hollywood and the movie industry, and when her various sorts of high risk behavior started to get out of control, he realized that wouldn't ever happen with her...

I don't think Andy is to blame for not having paid Edie, considering the fact that Edie benefited a lot more in terms of the publicity she received than Andy did financially from using her in his films.

Absolutely fantastic footage from the Merv Griffin show! In a lot of pictures Edie's features look so colossal but here she appears very petite and delicate. She also seems a little more nervous than I would have expected. Adorable!

Yay! Thanks to xXPinkGoddessxX, I'm now a member of this thread which I've been following forever. I hope this works. I'm just testing it out to make sure and then I'm going to go through my Edie files to see if I have pictures that haven't been posted.
