Andy Warhol filmed more than 400 Screen Tests. According to Gerard Malanga, the Screen Tests were filmed from early 1964 – November 1966 (GM25). They were not referred to as Screen Tests originally – but were more like film portraits. The duration of each Screen Test varies from 2.7 – 4.8 minutes. Some were edited into compilation reels such as The Thirteen Most Beautiful Women and some were compiled into background reels for projection at EPI performances or to accompany a poetry reading event put together by Gerard Malanga. Still images from some of the Screen Tests were also reproduced in the Malanga/Warhol book, Screen Tests/A Diary. The silent Screen Tests lasting less than 5 minutes should not be confused with the full-length films (featuring Warhol’s scriptwriter Ron Tavel as the off-screen voice) with the names of Screen Test #1, Screen Test #2 and Screen Test #3 [aka Suicide].
