Lonesome Cowboys (1968) is a film by American filmmaker Andy Warhol. Written by Paul Morrissey, the film is a satire of Hollywood westerns. The film won the Best Film Award at the San Francisco International Film Festival.

The film was filmed in January 1968 in Old Tucson and Rancho Linda Vista Dude Ranch in Oracle, Arizona. The film features Warhol superstars Viva, Taylor Mead, Eric Emerson, and Joe Dallesandro. The plot is loosely based on Romeo and Juliet, hence the names Julian and Ramona of the two leads. In August 1969, the film was seized by police in Atlanta, Georgia and the theater personnel arrested.[1]
