Candy Darling you are no Candy Loving that's for sure. But was Slattery the trailblazer for the Transgendered in the 60's, like his fellow compatriots on Gay and Christopher street? Combine Warhol's discarded and rejected, with New York 1970's grit, and add some great songs by Bowie and Reed and you have a very compelling documentary. Fran Lebowitz and Jane County add some of the smarter commentary in the film. If Slattery the actor believed he was Candy, does he convince the audience? I thought he would never make it in Hollywood due to no talent, but one agent said he could have made him famous as Candy, in France and Germany, and that convinces me that when you wish upon a star...well you know the rest. I think we are all inspired and influenced in our behavior by some one in the star maker machinery and Slattery was no different. "You must always be yourself no matter what the price. It's the highest form of morality". Words that hardly ring true in this day and age. This film will be around for a long time whether we like it or not.
