Blue Movie (1969), a.k.a. Fuck., is a film by Andy Warhol starring Viva and Louis Waldon.

Warhol describes the film, "in October '68 I shot a movie of Viva having sex with Louis Waldon. I called it just Fuck." While it is true that the movie does involve sexual intercourse, this is framed by dialog about the Vietnam War and various mundane tasks.[1] [2] [3] [4]

While initially shown at The Factory, it was not shown to a wider audience at the Warhol Garrick Theatre until 1969. On July 31, the staff of the theater was arrested, and the film confiscated. The manager was eventually fined $250.
