In conjunction with the exhibition Andy Warhol: My Perfect Body, the museum screens daily Hedy (1966, 66 minutes), directed by Andy Warhol with scenario by Ronald Tavel and music by John Cale and Lou Reed. A satirical farce, Hedy portrays the story of faded Hollywood actress Hedy Lamarr. Once celebrated as one of the most beautiful women alive, Lamarr was famously arrested for shop lifting in a Los Angeles department store. Fact and fiction collide as celebrity gossip is used to present a darker side of fame, one in which beauty and pain become synonymous.
