Paul Morrissey Biography


Paul Morrissey was born in 1938 in New York City. (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0607407/) He went to school at Fordham University where he studied Literature. He was introduced to Andy Warhol in 1965 and they started to make films together. At first these films were billed with both as directors but later they became mostly credited to Morrissey, starting with Lonesome Cowboys up until 1975 when they decided to part ways. Morrissey then decided to continue his filmmaking career and make it completely independent of all American film companies. He has since been unable to raise funds for films without going to film companies thus forcing him to halt future production on any films. (http://www.paulmorrissey.org/bio)
