Jackie Curtis (L) and Candy Darling giggling. Darling died on March 21, 1974 at the age of 29. According to ex-Interview editor, Bob Colacello, Candy had "leukemia and a malignant tumor in her stomach." When he told Andy Warhol about Candy's condition, Bob recalls "for the first and only time in the seventeen years I knew him, I saw him cry." #superstar
