Along with Edie Sedgwick, Candy Darling, Holly Woodlawn and Nico, Joe Dallesandro was one of Andy Warhol‘s greatest Superstars. A male hustler by trade, Dallesandro rose to stardom portraying just that in Warhol’s 1968 production, Flesh, directed by Paul Morrisey. In 1971 he not only graced the cover of Rolling Stone but also provided the infamous bulge for The Rolling Stones‘ classic Sticky Fingers LP. Warhol later remarked that ”In my movies, everyone’s in love with Joe Dallesandro,” so this Male Model Humpday, and in celebration of our month of Art & Design, feel free to fall.
And for an added treat, the trailer from Dallesandro’s star-making vehicle, Flesh.
