Throughout his career Warhol made numerous films, many of which were experimental and pushed the boundaries of what was considered acceptable in cinema. `Chelsea Girls? however, was the art-house film which stepped into the mainstream with incredible success. It consists of twelve reels of unedited conversations and monologues with Warhol?s `superstars? captured for the most part at New York?s famous Chelsea Hotel. The film was then projected two reels at a time, combining separate, often contrasting stories. This poster is an example of the effective use of Warhol?s celebrity as a tool to help promote the film. It is branded as `Andy Warhol?s The Chelsea Girls?, with a stylised image of him instantly recognisable in the design.
