Edie Sedgwick was the true "It Girl" of the Pop Art age; a woman who famously said she wanted to turn the world on just for a moment. Part of Andy Warhol's Factory for a year in the mid-60s, she is widely believed to have inspired The Velvet Underground's Femme Fatale as well as Bob Dylan's Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat and Just Like A Woman.
1973's Ciao! Manhattan, the model and actor's final film, gave some indication of why she inspired such devotion. Written and directed by Factory affiliates John Palmer and David Weisman, the movie tells a quasi-fictionalised account a chronicle à clef in Weisman's words of Sedgewick's journey from New York to Santa Barbara.
In the film, Sedgwick is Susan Superstar, a New Yorker who winds up living in a drained Santa Barbara swimming pool in a narcotic daze, life and art just a hair away from each other. Shot over a five year period, Sedgwick died of a barbiturate overdose at the age of 28 before filming wrapped in 1971.
