I, a Man (1967) is an 1967 American film written, directed and photographed by Andy Warhol. The film depicts the main character, played by Tom Baker, in a series of sexual encounters with eight women. Warhol created the movie as a response to the popular erotic Scandinavian film I, a Woman (1965) which had opened in the United States in October 1966.

  • Ingrid Superstar as Girl on Table

  • Warhol gave Solanas a part in the film for $25 and as compensation for a script she had given to Warhol called Up Your Ass, which he had lost. Solanas later attempted to kill Warhol by shooting him. According to a 2004 biography of Jim Morrison, Morrison agreed to appear in the film opposite Nico, but later backed out of it and instead sent his friend Tom Baker to the production shoot.

    Reception

    Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun Times wrote the film was "not dirty, or even funny, or even anything but a very long and pointless home movie," and described it as "an elaborate, deliberately boring joke." Howard Thompson in his review for the New York Times wrote "The nudity is no match for the bareness of the dialogue's drivel and the dogged tone of waste and ennui that pervade the entire film."
