Promo clip pitching the notorious action comedy-mind blower, circa 1969 film from legendary film genius, Timothy Carey.
The idea of adapting TWEET’S LADIES OF PASADENA as an animated series is brilliant… one can only imagine the back-story?
We are currently looking for animators who are interested in helping to create the animation pilot to pitch to Netflix.
Well, I’ve just heard from Romeo Carey that an animator has been found for this project! An Emmy-winning animator. That’s all I know at this point. More as it becomes available! Is this exciting or what?
The hubby requested another shot of Timothy from Alaska Seas (1954), directed by Jerry Hopper. Here he is as marine repairman Wycoff, confronting rogue fisherman Matt Kelly (Robert Ryan) about the money he owes Wycoff for services rendered (not to put too fine a point on it, $920.60).
This one used to be streaming on Netflix, but not anymore. It is available on Amazon Instant Video, and you should be able to find a copy on sites such as iOffer. It’s worth your time – check it out!
Today we take another look at Alaska Seas (1954), the nautical adventure directed by Jerry Hopper. Fisherman Matt Kelly (Robert Ryan) has come to claim his boat from repairman Wycoff, who claims that Kelly owes him $920.60 and is very unhappy when Kelly offers him a fraction of that.
Wycoff comes across as quite a bit older than the 24 Timothy was when he made the film. He and Ryan worked together again in The Outfit (1973). Tim told Grover Lewis, “I did a show with Bob Ryan once – he was great, but he wouldn’t allow a lot of takes. ‘This is it,’ he’d say.” Alaska Seas is still available on Netflix Streaming, so give it a gander.
Today’s pic revisits Jerry Hopper‘s maritime adventure Alaska Seas (1954). Marine repairman Wycoff is in pursuit of rascally rogue Matt Kelly (Robert Ryan), who owes him a pile of money ($920.60, to be exact). Nicky Jackson (Jan Sterling), girlfriend of fisherman Jim Kimmerly (Brian Keith), has just advised him as to Kelly’s whereabouts.
I also wanted to let you all know that the blog will be going on hiatus for the rest of the week. We’ll be back on September 30, my wedding anniversary and the anniversary of the death of James Dean. So stay tuned!
Starting off the work week is another look at Flight to Hong Kong (1956), directed by Joseph M. Newman. Timothy’s sleazy thug-for-hire Lagarto and his pal Cappy (Bob Hopkins) are eager to open what Tony Dumont (Rory Calhoun) wants them to think is a suitcase full of diamonds. It isn’t.
Not much else to say about this one. Tim’s appearance is, as usual, brief but memorable. You can catch this one on Netflix Instant; it’s worth a look.
EDITOR’S NOTE 11/21/12: The video is no longer there, but go listen to the podcast anyway, OK?
IT’S FINALLY HERE! Episode 37 of The Projection Booth, in which I subject the unfortunate listener to my annoying voice as I blather on about Tim and The World’s Greatest Sinner (1962), is now available for your listening and downloading pleasure. Tim’s son Romeo provides the exciting news that Sinner will soon be enjoying a proper DVD release, and will also be coming to Netflix! Let the celebrations begin!
Here at The TC Experience, we’re celebrating by making God Hilliard’s revelatory moment our Video of the Week. Enjoy, and remember – let’s be different. Let’s not hate anyone.
