The Timothy Carey Experience wishes a very happy 82nd birthday anniversary to the lovely and supremely talented Gena Rowlands! She was married to John Cassavetes from 1954 until his death in 1989. It is safe to say that she was his muse. The following delightful photographs are from Cassavetes on Cassavetes by Ray Carney (Faber and Faber, 2001). When Rowlands was nominated for an Oscar for her terrific performance in Gloria (1980), Timothy threw her an “anti-Academy Awards party.” Cassavetes is examining a flier for The World’s Greatest Sinner (1962) in the bottom picture.
Happy birthday, Gena!
