A 70s musical midnight movie starring Trash Tgirl-superstar Holly Woodlawn is finally restored! Never released on video and not screened since, Woodlawn proves herself to be far more than a Warhol superstar.
Woodlawn delights as Eve Harrington, a cis girl trying to make it big, alongside cult legend, Tally Brown. Featuring cameos from Lily Tomlin to Bette Midler, this counterculture gem is restored and ready for reappraisal.
Scarecrow in a Garden of Cucumbers | dir. Robert J. Kaplan | USA 1972 | 82’
