Susan Tyrrell 1945 – 2012

I was very saddened to learn of the death yesterday of actor Susan Tyrrell. Like Timothy, she was a free spirit who could not be put in a box. Her only film with Tim was Fast-Walking (1982). Regretfully, they did not appear onscreen together. Our pic of the day nonetheless is from that film and is dedicated to her. Here Timothy’s junkie convict Bullet is being summoned to a meeting with Wasco (Tim McIntire) by Squeeze (John Friedrich).

There is a wonderful interview with Tyrrell in the same issue of Psychotronic Video magazine (#6, Summer 1990) that has the interview with Timothy. She will always be Queen Doris of the Sixth Dimension to me.  Rest well, Susu.
