Quote of the Week

This week’s quote is another one not by Timothy, but about him:

Tweet’s is the complete antithesis to Sinner. This is Dad’s version of what he thought was funny. He learned a lot about filming comedy from watching silent movies. It’s really a showcase for my dad’s acting talent. He incorporated silent film-making techniques into his acting. Silent film acting had to be very physical. That plays to one of my dad’s strengths, the sheer physicality of it… Tweet’s is a total change of pace from Sinner. Comparing Tweet’s to Sinner is like comparing Santa Claus to Satan.”

– Romeo Carey, from “Timothy Carey: The World’s Greatest Director!”, Filmfax Plus magazine #102 (April/June 2004), article and interviews by Harvey F. Chartrand
