A remarkable double portrait of Tally Brown – a bohemian cabaret artiste associated with New York’s underground art scene and Warhol’s Factory.

A Julliard-trained blues singer and gifted raconteur, Brown is shown in performance – covering Kurt Weill, Johnny Mercer, the Rolling Stones and David Bowie – and in lively conversation with the director Rosa von Praunheim (off camera) and assorted friends, including John Waters favourite Divine (for whom Tally was often mistaken), and Warhol superstar Holly Woodlawn.

Just as fascinating are the glimpses of various bygone gay Manhattan hang-outs – the Continental Baths, and West Village cabaret-revival club Reno Sweeney – and the gritty street life around Times Square.

US 1979 Dir Rosa von Praunheim 93 min 16mm presentation 16mm courtesy of the Reserve Film and Video Collection of The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts
