Like The Seventh Bullet, The Bodyguard is an example of the "Red Western," set again during the Basmachi Revolt of the 1920s. This time, however, the primary reference point is not Sergio Leone, but the classic Hollywood westerns of Budd Boetticher and Anthony Mann. When a Basmachi leader is captured, the Red Army enlists a veteran local hunter to escort the prisoner, accompanied by his servant and daughter, across difficult terrain, pursued every step of the way by a relentless Basmachi usurper and his soothsayer wife.

Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests

Between 1963 and 1966 Andy Warhol worked at making film portraits of all sorts of characters linked to New York art circles. Famous people and anonymous people were filmed by Andy Warhol’s 16 mm camera, for almost four minutes, without any instructions other than ‘to get in front of the camera’.
