Pic of the Day: “Fast-Walking” revisited

Our pic today takes another look at Fast-Walking (1982), directed by James B. Harris, the producer of Paths of Glory (1957) and the man who fired Timothy from that film (“You’ve already stolen all the scenes!”). Here junkie con Bullet is mulling over the business proposal just outlined to him by fellow con Wasco (Tim McIntire).


McIntire was born into a Hollywood family, the son of character actors John McIntire and Jeanette Nolan. His promising career was cut short only four years after this film was made, when he lost his battle with substance abuse at the age of 41.
