Promotional poster for the French release of Lonesome Cowboys. The film is often credited as being directed by Andy Warhol, though Paul Morrissey was either co-director or sole director of the film, depending on the source. Interestingly, this French poster correctly credits Morrisey, with Warhol “presenting” the film.
Originally entitled Fuck, then The Glory of the Fuck, Warhol - recovering from Valerie Solanas’ attack - decided to name it Lonesome Cowboys, in part as a reference to the film Midnight Cowboy, which he felt had poached some of the key people of his scene.
