Of Irish Catholic extraction, Morrissey attended Ampleforth College and Fordham University, both Roman Catholic schools, and later served in the United States Army. A political conservative and self-described "right-winger", who has publicly protested against what he perceives as immorality and "anti-Catholicism", Morrissey's long-term collaboration with the low-keyed, apparently apolitical Warhol was viewed by many as "a successful mismatch", although both men did share some traits, e.g. both were practicing Catholics from "ethnic" backgrounds (Warhol was of Rusyn descent).

Morrissey's bold, avant-garde direction in film making is often attributed to his relationship with Warhol and the Factory, although Morrissey claimed in his memoir, Factory Days, that this is not the case. Morrissey discovered and signed the Velvet Underground.

  • "Andy Warhol never met one of those people before I cast them. They were not his coterie, and they were not hanging out at his gallery. These were selections of mine! I've had this all my life! The horror of it! His celebrityhood, which is an invention of the media, dominating my films!" (Morrissey to Kevin Mahler of The Times)
