Andy Warhol's film, which took on themes of homosexual obsession and aspects of gay lifestyle, which were new to the canon of American film at that time, was shot over an LSD-fueled Labor Day weekend on Fire Island. It is the story of an older man and his "Dial-a-Hustler" companion at the New York City weekend destination. Although the New York Times referred to it as a "fetid beach-boy film" (July 11, 1967), the film proved to be a financial success for Warhol. It premiered in December 1965 at the Film-Makers' Cinematheque, and this poster advertises a screening in the Spring of the following year.
