Cast & Crew
Actor Joe Dallesandro turns sixty and looks back on a career as a male sex symbol that spans 40 years. The foundation of this career began with Andy Warhol's film "Flesh" (1968) which was followed by appearances in films by European directors such as Jacques Rivette and Louis Malle. Joe, once dubbed "the underground Valentino," is also mentioned as "Little Joe" in Lou Reed's 1972 song "Walk on the Wild Side" and he posed as the jeans-clad male hips on the cover of the Rolling Stones' album "Sticky Fingers." While Joe broke many barriers and set new standards, he always had an incredible insight into what fame can do for you and to you.
