Today’s pic is my latest eBay find! It’s a publicity still for Waterhole #3 (1967), the rollicking Western comedy directed by William A. Graham. Paramount Pictures is more than happy to tell us that it features Roy Jenson, Harry Davis and Timothy, digging a tunnel in search of gold.
Davis was a familiar character actor who appeared mostly on television throughout the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s, with the occasional film role coming his way. One of the most memorable of these was in Elia Kazan‘s America America (1963). His wife, Dorothy Salisbury Davis, was one of the best of a handful of women writing and publishing hard-boiled crime fiction in the 1940s and ’50s (and beyond).
Today’s pic revisits Nightside (1980), the failed television series pilot directed by Bernard L. Kowalski. Timothy appears near the end as Slowboy, the coked-out pimp. He’s only on-screen about two minutes, but it’s worth the wait.
Today we take another look at John Flynn‘s The Outfit (1973). Ill-tempered thug Jake Menner is not too happy about Earl Macklin (Robert Duvall) interrupting his card game. I am not 100% certain who the actor sitting next to Timothy is.
Our pic for this Friday revisits Waterhole #3 (1967), the irreverent Western comedy starring James Coburn. Claude Akins is doing his best to avoid an altercation between Timothy and Roy Jenson.
“This was really demanding as I had to play a part-goat, part-human type,” Tim once said of his role as Hilb. “I would react by making the sound of a goat to reflect different moods. There was a simplicity about that role that I liked.” He and Jenson would later both appear in The Outfit (1973) and Nightside (1980).
