Like the Lou Reed song, "Walk on the Wild Side," goes, 'Candy came from Long Island ...'
Born James Lawrence Slattery in 1944, as a boy, young Jimmy lost himself in movies and television. His life began to change when he met Andy Warhol. By then, Jimmy had transformed into glamorous Candy Darling, who worked alongside Sophia Loren, Jane Fonda, Tennessee Williams and became a star on the Off-Off Broadway stage, before succumbing to cancer in NYC in March of 1974.
James Rasin is a New York City writer and filmmaker. His short film, "The Burning Ghat," was screened at the Venice Biennale and won the Gold Plaque at the Chicago International Film Festival. His short documentary, "Gregory Cordo" Reads from the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights, was included in the Whitney Museum's 'Beat Culture and the New America' and was also in the Venice Biennale.
