Our pic today revisits Fast-Walking (1982), the prison drama directed by James B. Harris, the co-producer of Paths of Glory (1957) and the man who fired Timothy from that film. Ill-smelling junkie con Bullet appears delighted by the business plan being outlined to him by Wasco (Tim McIntire).
Harris did indeed fire Tim from Paths, after all his major scenes had been shot. His shenanigans on the set had proved too much, the last straw being the faked kidnapping. Harris knew, though, that it was really too late. “You’ve already stolen all the scenes!” he exasperatedly told Tim. Twenty-five years later, here he was working with Tim once again. I can only guess that things went much more smoothly this time.
