Tarzan and Jane Regained... Sort of (1964)
This road movie represents Warhol's first attempt at making a narrative film, and bears very little resemblance to his subsequent films. The most striking aesthetic anomaly of this film-when compared to the rest of his work-is the constantly moving camera, which would end up on the tripod and rarely move in his later films. Starring Taylor Mead as Tarzan and Naomi Levine as Jane, the film demonstrates both Warhol's excitement with the medium and with Hollywood itself as he travels to Los Angeles (hcl.harvard.edu.com)
