This week’s quote is from a recent interview with Alice Friedland, who portrayed Sherry, one of Cosmo Vitelli’s “entourage of biscuits,” in John Cassavetes‘ The Killing of a Chinese Bookie (1976). It is presented without comment but with much blushing and uncontrollable giggling. Which I suppose is comment in and of itself.
During our interview I could not remember much about Timothy Carey and then it all started to come back to me. Our scenes did not interact with each other. I was looking at him in a casino scene and then it hit me. I saw some of his old movies; I loved old movies from way back, and while I was watching him on the set I became totally enamored with him. He was so tall and that great sexy voice. He had a sublime sexiness that was so different and I just wanted him to ravage me. His dominant manner was turning me on big time. I wanted him bad.
