A Day in the Life of Andy Warhol - the short version

Stephen Smith sets out to discover the real Andy Warhol.

In New York, Smith looks up Warhol's close associates, discussing the day-to-day business of silk screen production and the running of the Factory with Warhol's assistant Gerard Malanga. He talks to Joseph Freeman, whose role was to get Warhol to work on time at The Factory.

The story of Warhol as man and artist is told by piecing together the hour-by-hour detail of his daily life.
