Pop An Exponent Andy Warhol Writes Novel, TV Commercial BASS IITTITl TTTTf1 like Ultra Violet, International Velvet, and Ingrid Superstar. He made 150 to 200 movies of which he says: "All were experimental: we never completed one. We were in movies working toward TV. We have finally started working in videotape. We want to go into something like underground television cable. "We want to do more family kind of movies for TV. Say, a story about a dog, maybe.

NfcW YORK (UPH-Anrl ill, Warhol, the, uh, pop artist and, uh, naughty-word underground movie, well, uh, pioneer he talks up a hesitation waltz of a sentence, whpn he eloigns to talk at all. He Is, however, a man who drags his feet only in his speech. In artistic breakthrough, Warhol Is full speed ahead. This month's Warholic output: A first novel and a first television commercial. Hp also is working at making I hp novel into a play and has plans for a second novel, and a soap tompany Is after him to make a second television ad. The Warhol in Disneyland, or maybe vice versa, is a rather arresting concept but a novelist? Andy Warhol? Certainly, and let's get this straight. Jlis idea seems to be that the best way to produce a novel is eliminate the author, just as his paintings failed to comment and were eecutcd impersonally. He has hogtied the mystique of reality. Why bother with a plot, or your own words, when life itself can be taped (with a rr-corder), typed (on paper), and tabbed (at $10 a book. Grove Press, New York, publication due around Nov. 20)? black palrnt leather .shoes, and a blue shirt open at the neck under a prominent, Sand-burgian nose lit with blue veins. He Is a very serious, hollowly handsome man. Whpn-Warhol deserted pop art for the motion picture, one critic gave him credit for "energizing the underground cinema movement." He once to-cussed a camera for six hours on the navel of a sleeping man. Another film had the Umpire Stale Building as its star and entire cast. Nudity, lewdness, bellies and bosoms were not shunned.

As everybody knows who lived through the early 10's, when Warhol does stuff about life, he's like real, man. His pop art paintings of soup cans and his sculpted soap pad boxes make Campbell and Brlllo look rcaler than they do i your shelf. "Absence of comment on the subject," is (he way the art critics put it. His retailer says his paintings have sold for $5,000 lo 920,000 and the mod boxes for $400 to $500. But he's through with all that. Stopped three or four years ago. Why? "Objects on walls seem to have all been done. I like empty walls better than putting things on them." The studio that Warhol calls "The Factory" is big, white, bare-walled with old-fashioned, swing-glass windows opening onto Union Square In a building hard by the former longtime home of another pop realist.Tammany Hall. A current book on the New York art scene notes that "The ofactory" doubled as "a film itudlo and an exhibition hall of miscellaneous eccentrics, many of whom appear at all hours, uninvited." One of these appeared with a gun In hand a tew years ago, when Warhol was on a movie atar painting kick, and blew a hole through a pile of Marilyn Monroe canvases. Another, more recently, claimed to have founded the Society for Cutting Up Men (SCUM), whose manifesto calls males "a biological accident." SCUM'i program would "eliminate through sabotage ail aspects of society not relevant to women, bring about the complete female takeover, eliminate the male sex and begin a twinging, groovy, out-f sight female world." The SCUM founder got a small part In a Warhol movie. On June 3, she appeared at the factory. Warhol got a bullet through his lungs, esophagus, liver, and spleen. After a five-hour operation, he hovered between life and death for days, finally recovering and leaving the hospital July 28. In August, the SCUM founder was Judged incompetent to stand trial and aent to a mental Institution. Warhol now Is his old, fit, pale-skinned, dark-spectacled, seldom-smiling, untalkative elf. But he did talk up the other day at the factory about his plans a skinny figure with silver-streaked hair that's eomsllk-stringy at the ends, dressed in a black leather jacket, black velvet pants. I!
