This article is about the film by Andy Warhol. For other uses, see Blue movie (disambiguation).
Blue Movie (stylized as blue movie) is a 1969 American film directed, produced, written and cinematographed by American producer Andy Warhol. The film stars Viva and Louis Waldon.
Warhol describes the film: "In October '68 I shot a movie of Viva having sex with Louis Waldon. I called it just Fuck." While it is true that the movie does involve sexual intercourse, this is framed by dialog about the Vietnam War and various mundane tasks.
While initially shown at The Factory, it was not shown to a wider audience at the Warhol Garrick Theatre until 1969. On July 31, the staff of the theater was arrested, and the film confiscated. The manager was eventually fined $250.
