Which Is Hotter?

One of my last In Theater Experiences before all this shit went down was in February seeing a collection of short films called "Queer Before Stonewall" at MoMA, which included Andy Warhol's 1965 flick My Hustler, which isn't technically a short at 76 minutes... but in spirit it is, since per Andy's usual nothing really happens. The plot description is short! Two homosexual men and one straight woman leer at Paul America (seen above) for a long time on the beach, and then they leer at him inside, the end. 

He's worth the time spent leering! Anyway since today would have been Andy Warhol's 92nd birthday it seemed an opportune moment to revisit that and drag Joe Dallesandro into the mess while we're at it because I don't know about you but I can't talk about Andy without also wanting to talk about (or leer at anyway) Little Joe...
