Blue Movie (stylized as blue movie) is a 1969 American film directed, produced, written and cinematographed by American producer Andy Warhol, and is a seminal film in the Golden Age of Porn. The film stars Louis Waldon and Viva.
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.
The film itself acquired a blue/green tint because Warhol used the wrong kind of film during production. He used film meant for filming night-scenes, and the sun coming through the apartment window turned the film blue.
While initially shown at The Factory, it was not shown to a wider audience at the Warhol Garrick Theatre until 1969. On July 31, 1969, the staff of the theater was arrested, and the film confiscated. The manager was eventually fined $250. (NOTE: More Citations Here)
