Video of the Week: “Fast-Walking”

EDITOR’S NOTE 10/11/12: Blocked for copyright infringement. Sorry about that, folks.

Our video for this week features Tim with another Tim – McIntire, that is – in a scene from Fast-Walking (1982), the rather sleazy prison drama directed by James B. Harris, the co-producer of Paths of Glory (1957) and the man who fired Tim from that film (after all his scenes were in the can, I’m happy to add).

In this scene Tim McIntire delivers what is truly one of the greatest monologues in film history. He died four years after this film was made, at the age of 41, drugs and alcohol having taken their toll on his heart.
