Charles Aberg was the obscure star of Andy Warhol's unreleased 1966 feature Withering Sights, a spoof of the classic novella Wuthering Heights.[1] Aberg played Heathcliff while co-star Ingrid Superstar was Cathy, although his first encounter with Warhol was in February 1966, a few weeks before Sights was filmed. As he did with most of his Screen Test subjects, Warhol shot three rolls of film in one sitting. Aberg was modestly poised in a black turtleneck, seemingly anxious and uncomfortable throughout the filming.[2]

Aberg relocated to Dallas soon afterward, becoming a skilled painter until his death in 1982.
