Video of the Week: “Fast-Walking”

EDITOR’S NOTE 10/11/12: Has been removed by the user. Sorry about that.

Speaking of Fast-Walking (1982), here it is in its entirety! Not sure how this has managed to stay on YouTube for so long. Enjoy it before it gets taken down! Timothy first appears about 30 minutes in.

Fast-Walking was directed by James B. Harris, the man who fired Tim from Paths of Glory (1957). It also stars the late great Susan Tyrrell, James Woods, Kay Lenz, Tim McIntire, Robert Hooks and M. Emmet Walsh. It’s kind of sleazy but features some great performances. Check it out!

Susan Tyrrell 1945 – 2012

I was very saddened to learn of the death yesterday of actor Susan Tyrrell. Like Timothy, she was a free spirit who could not be put in a box. Her only film with Tim was Fast-Walking (1982). Regretfully, they did not appear onscreen together. Our pic of the day nonetheless is from that film and is dedicated to her. Here Timothy’s junkie convict Bullet is being summoned to a meeting with Wasco (Tim McIntire) by Squeeze (John Friedrich).

There is a wonderful interview with Tyrrell in the same issue of Psychotronic Video magazine (#6, Summer 1990) that has the interview with Timothy. She will always be Queen Doris of the Sixth Dimension to me.  Rest well, Susu.
