Andy Warhol’s Screen Test of Bob Dylan

Between 1964 and 1966, Andy Warhol conducted what he called “screen tests” of some of the people who dropped into The Factory, his freak-out art headquarters on East 47th in New York.  There are some 472 of these films, some of which include some rather famous people.

Here’s a clip of what happened when Bob Dylan paid a visit.
