Blue Movie (stylized as blue movie) is a 1969 American film directed, produced, written and cinematographed by American producer Andy Warhol,[1][2] and is a seminal film in the Golden Age of Porn. The film stars Louis Waldon and Viva.[3][4]

Warhol describes the film: "In October '68 I shot a movie of Viva having sex with Louis Waldon. I called it just Fuck."[3][5] While it is true that the movie does involve sexual intercourse, this is framed by dialog about the Vietnam War and various mundane tasks.[1][2]

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.[6][7]

While initially shown at The Factory, it was not shown to a wider audience at the Warhol Garrick Theatre until 1969.[1][2] On July 31, 1969, the staff of the theater was arrested, and the film confiscated.[2][3] The manager was eventually fined $250.[2][3] (NOTE: More Citations Here)
