Mini Biography

Andy Milligan was created in St. Paul, Minnesota on Feb 12, 1929. He was a self-taught film machine, playwright, script article writer and costume developer. He was raised mainly in Minnesota, but he and his family members moved around the united states a whole lot. His dad, Andrew Jackson Milligan Sr. (1895-1985) was a colonel in the U.S. Military. His mom, Marie Gladys Hull (1903-1953), was an over weight, neurotic-bipolar alcoholic who bodily and verbally abused her hubby and kids. She offered as the foundation for ratings of her son’s people when he started making movies. Milligan had a mature half-brother called Harley Hull and a young sister called Louise. After completing grade college, Milligan became a member of the U.S. Navy where he offered four years. After his honorable release, he resolved in NEW YORK in 1951 where he dabbled in functioning on stage and opened up a dress store. Through the 1950s Milligan became mixed up in nascent off-off-Broadway movie theater movement where he installed productions of performs by Lord Dunsany and Jean Genet on the Caffe Cino, a little Greenwich Village coffeehouse that offered being a hothouse for increasing movie theater talent like Lanford Wilson, Tom Eyen and John Guare. Milligan also became associated with directing movie theater productions at Cafe La Ma Ma Experimental Movie theater Club. During this time period he controlled and created for a clothing store named Advertisement Lib and utilized his crude dressmaking abilities to outfit many theatrical productions. In the first 1960s Milligan considered film making being a change of rate. He met a number of the stars for his early movies at Caffe Cino. His initial released film was a 30-minute black-and-white 16 mm brief dilemma entitled Vapors (1965). Occur the notorious homosexual bathhouse St. Mark’s Baths, it had been written by Wish Stansbury, the raven-haired beauty who superstar in his afterwards movies. The film, established on one Fri night time in the St. Mark’s Baths, portrays an psychologically uncomfortable and unconsummated conference between two strangers. Milligan was afterwards employed by manufacturers of exploitation movies, especially William Mishkin, to immediate softcore sexploitation and horror features, many offering stars known through the off-off Broadway movie theater community. Milligan then installed with famed sexploitation manufacturer William Mishkin and made 11 features, all shot with an individual hand-held 16mm Auricon camera on brief ends (snippets of film left from other productions). Some of these consist of Depraved! (1967), Seed products (1968) (“Sown in Incest! Harvested in Hate!”) and Fleshpot on 42nd Street (1973). Several early functions play like bizarre morality stories where sleazy character types get violently repaid for his or her excesses. Milligan setup shop inside a Victorian mansion situated on north Staten Isle, within walking range from the ferry and his own home. The house quickly became “Hollywood central,” where he filmed the majority of his films on budgets which range from $5,000 to $20,000. Milligan was a one-man army–he published, directed, built units and sewed outfits for his splatter epics just like the Ghastly Types (1968). His typical “stock organization” (Stansbury, Neil Flanagan, Hal Borske) was frequently supplemented by Staten Isle locals who have been dragged into carrying out. Milligan even married one of is own actresses, Chocolate Hammond, who starred in several his films, especially while Pussy Johnson in Gutter Garbage (1969). Nobody took the marriage significantly, because Milligan was unabashedly homosexual and an avowed misogynist. The support took place in the Staten Isle house, that was still adorned for a film shoot. That night time, Milligan cruised homosexual pubs to celebrate. In 1968, Milligan started to help to make horror movies featuring gore effects using the Ghastly Ones (1968), his 1st color film that was made by JER and entitled by Sam Sherman. In 1969, he produced his following horror film, Torture Dungeon (1970), and he relocated to London to create films there after having produced a cope with maker Leslie Elliot. After directing Nightbirds (1970) in London, his collaboration with Elliot collapsed as he was focusing on YOUR BODY Beneath (1970). Milligan after that teamed up once again with William Mishkin once again where Mishkin created and Milligan aimed three more English pictures that have been Bloodthirsty Butchers (1970), THE PERSON with Two Mind (1972), as well as the Rats Are Arriving! The Werewolves Are Right here! (1972) (all shot in 1969) before Milligan’s go back to Staten Isle in 1970. On his go back to NY, Milligan directed another middle ages period part titled Guru, the Mad Monk (1970), shot for the very first time having a 35mm Arriflex camera and filmed entirely in the Chelsea, Manhattan church. This film was released on the dual feature with YOUR BODY Beneath. Through another years, Mishkin released Milligan’s British-made photos, some with extra moments shot in NY. The Rats are Arriving! The Werewolves are Right here! was among Mishkin’s films where he previously Milligan insert fresh killer rat moments shot in NY, mainly at his fresh Staten Island home on Corson Road where Milligan resided during that period and filmed another horror period piece there in 1973 that was titled Bloodstream (1973) After directing the 1972 sexploitation drama Fleshpot on 42nd Road (1973), Milligan’s output was limited mainly to gory horror movies as he relocated to the southern tip of Staten Isle in the Tottenville neighborhood where he lived in and owned and operated a dilapidated hotel located by the end of Primary Street best next towards the southern end of Staten Isle Railway. In October 1977, Milligan moved into 335 Western 39th Street in Manhattan (a four-story building bought for $50,000 by Milligan and stockholders), where he founded and ran the Troupe Theater, a seedy but fun Off-Off Broadway venue above which he lived inside a third-floor loft until he remaining NEW YORK once and for all in early 1985. He relocated to LA, California, where he shot three even more horror films in 1987 and 1988 aswell as managed another movie theater which went until 1990. Andy Milligan was heavily into S&M and had hardly any serious relationships (all with men). The few close friends he did have got were just like emotionally stressed and dangerously disturbed as he was. A Vietnam experienced and ex-convict called Dennis Malvasi, who once drifted into and proved helpful at Andy’s Troupe Movie theater in the later 1970s and early 1980s, afterwards made information headlines in March 2001 when he and his wife had been arrested for assisting the air travel of fugitive Adam Kopp, the suspected murderer of a fresh York abortion doctor. One sweetheart, “individual toothpick” B. Wayne Keeton (so-named for his gaunt physical build), was an excellent natured Louisiana hustler who made an appearance in a little function in Monstrosity (1987), among Milligan’s last movies. Keeton’s loss of life from Supports June 1989 strike Milligan hard, and he shortly started having his very own health issues. He learned quickly soon after that he, as well, had contracted Helps, evidently from Keeton. Without insurance, little cash, and the period of exploitation movies over, Andy Milligan proceeded to go right into a reclusive drop until his loss of life on June 3, 1991 at age group 62.

Quotes

#Quote
1Once Fleshpot on 42nd Street was finished, that's when I got out of exploitation. I got out when the hardcore sex films really began appearing in the theaters. I just couldn't compete against that. That was it. Lewis Mishkin once told me: "You are the most moral person I've met doing immoral films." I consider myself very conservative. I don't mind filming real sex, but showing all the details... I find that sleazy. Why put together a film with dialogue if they can go see a hardcore sex film? Why do dialogue? To enjoy a sex film is when's it's all sex and no story or dialogue, but when you try to put in a plot and dialogue, it's just plain bad.
2[on actor Dennis Malvasi] Dennis would die for you. He died a million times in Vietnam. He had all this stupidity wrapped up with all this brilliance. He knows opera, knows all classical music. He's a self-taught man, like me. He amazed me. He's a raw, unpolished gem. We were very close. He was like a little brother to me nearly the whole time I ran the Troupe Theater. He used to send bibles to kids all over the world. Bibles to underprivileged kids. He used to be a street kid. Came from the worst section of Brooklyn. He doesn't let anyone know in Brooklyn that he's an actor. He's got knife wounds on his back from a past mugging as well as Vietnam battle scars. If he only had a dollar on him and if a bum would walk up and ask him for any spare change, he would give that bum 50 cents of that dollar, yet he would later go help a Mafia friend of his bury somebody they've killed. He's a real Jekyll and Hyde character.
3I don't think any acting teacher is any good. You can't teach acting. All you can do is guide somebody. For one thing, the word 'acting' is wrong. It means to act, it means that you're acting. Just word 'acting' is terrible. "Oh, I'm an actor, I act out things." It should be 'being'.
4During the 60's I would go to see one of my double bills on 42nd Street. It was interesting. You see glossy million-dollar Hollywood productions and they're boring. None of my films are. They may be tacky or crudely made, but they're never dull. Theatrical... very theatrical. Like filmed stage plays. They look like cinema verite because of the blowup grain and mobility of the camera. A lot of hand-held stuff. They looked like newsreels.
5When a man is weak in the family and his wife rules the household, you'll find those men have homosexual tendencies or lean in that direction. Most of the guys that you meet that are gay have very strong mothers. The mother's idolized, the father's hated... or usually taught to be hated by the mother. And the girl who sees her mother beaten by her father will turn out lesbian. These are the basics. Standard patterns.
6I'm an old disciplinarian. People respected me because I put on a good production. Anybody who didn't do the whole drug-and-drink devil-may-care thing at Cino was sort of ostracized. The third show at the Cino... they'd all be pie-eyed as Royal Roost, Mona's place. If they drank after just one of my shows they wouldn't be in another. I just don't like alcohol.
7[on Russ Meyer] Russ Meyer? Too glossy for me. I was always asked "why can't you turn out a film like Russ Meyer?" I said, "I wouldn't want to turn out a film like Russ Meyer." He's into beautiful, big-breasted broads and beautiful photography, but there's nothing there. No substance. All exploitation films are woman hating films. What is exploitation but?
8Do you come from a happy home? I don't. I really didn't have a pleasant childhood... but you don't turn into an artist if you have a happy home life. I only write about what I know. I just remember the bad things.
9The answer is to go back to the basics of religion - try to be as nice as you can daily. That's what it comes down to. But if you get crass, nasty people, you can't turn the other cheek to them, you have to kick them in the other cheek. You have to be as low and depraved as they are. They don't understand anything else.
10Let's face it, life is a vale of tears.
