Pic of the Day: “Mermaids of Tiburon” revisited

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Dec 8, 2014

Today we take another look at John Lamb‘s Mermaids of Tiburon (1962). Pearl-coveting bad guy Milo Sangster (such a great character name) enjoys lunch while plotting his next nefarious enterprise. The Psychotronica Vol. 3 DVD of Mermaids was apparently supposed to include some commentary by Ro read more

Quote of the Week

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Dec 7, 2014

It’s so easy to recommend Revolt In The Big House. Just the fact that Timothy Carey ends up with a machine gun makes it essential. And it’s got a lot more going for it than that. - Toby Roan, “DVD Review: Revolt In The Big House (1958)”, The Hannibal 8; November 20, 2014 Fill in your read more

Pic of the Day: “Satan, Cyanide and Murder” revisited

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Dec 5, 2014

Whoa, I’ve really been slacking this week! My apologies, folks. I always tend to go into hibernation mode during this time of year. However, let’s remedy that with another look at Kenny the Knife, the reformed criminal of “Satan, Cyanide and Murder”. That was the episode of T read more

Pic of the Day: “The Velvet Jungle” revisited

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Dec 2, 2014

Today’s pic takes another look at the Starsky and Hutch episode “The Velvet Jungle,” first airing on March 5, 1977. Racist diner owner Danny is telling the boys about his “super pancakes,” but Starsky (Paul Michael Glaser) does not appear convinced. Glaser has been a r read more

Quote of the Week

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Nov 30, 2014

Carey’s career as a character actor began with the role of a dead man in Across the Wide Missouri, directed by William Wellman, who, Carey recalled, “was a great director and a tough director. I had two arrows in my back laying in the water. I couldn’t hold still, it was so cold my teeth were read more

Video of the Week: “The Adventure of Caesar’s Last Sleep”

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Nov 26, 2014

This week’s video is another one from the archives. It’s the full-length episode of Ellery Queen known as “The Adventure of Caesar’s Last Sleep”. It first aired on March 14, 1976. It’s brought to you by the good folks at Hulu, so I apologize in advance for the ads read more

Pic of the Day: “He’ll Never See Daylight” revisited

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Nov 25, 2014

Today’s pic takes another look at Matty Trifon, the gangster who enjoys nothing more than taking his friends out to dinner and stuffing them with yummy food. He appeared in the very first Baretta episode, “He’ll Never See Daylight”. It first aired on January 17, 1975 and was read more

Quote of the Week

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Nov 23, 2014

Born in Brooklyn, in 1929, Carey went to acting school and was a full-on believer of always being “in the moment” – a tendency that led to sudden, sometimes enraging improvisation (that beer he throws in Marlon Brando‘s face in “The Wild One” was not planned). But read more

Pic of the Day: “Paths of Glory” revisited

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Nov 21, 2014

To observe the 94th birthday anniversary of the great Ralph Meeker, we present another pic from Stanley Kubrick‘s Paths of Glory (1967). Col. Dax (Kirk Douglas) meets with the scapegoated prisoners (Timothy, Joe Turkel and Meeker). Meeker, born Ralph Rathgeber in Minneapolis, was discouraged read more

Video of the Week: “Nightside”

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Nov 19, 2014

This week’s video is the pilot for the failed proposed television series Nightside. It first aired on June 8, 1980. The quality of the video isn’t so great, and it has the uploader’s contact info plastered all over it, but its rarity if nothing else makes it worth a look. Timothy d read more

Pic of the Day: “Big Jessie” revisited

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Nov 18, 2014

Our pic of the day is another from the Cimarron Strip episode “Big Jessie”, first airing on February 8, 1968. Henchman Lobo sports a nasty scar and an even nastier attitude. At the helm for this episode was Herschel Daugherty. He began his career in feature films as a dialogue director read more

Quote of the Week

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Nov 16, 2014

“You mean you’ve never heard of WORLD’S GREATEST SINNER?” This was a question posed to me not too long ago by a friend; too many drinks and joints in while surveying his collection of rare films and memorabilia. To tell the truth, I didn’t know what the hell he was talking about, and could read more

Pic of the Day: “Unwed Mother” revisited

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Nov 13, 2014

Today’s pic takes another gander at the unnamed but unnerving back-alley abortionist of the low-budget cautionary melodrama Unwed Mother (1958), directed by Walter Doniger. The unfortunate title character (Norma Moore) is definitely wondering what she’s gotten herself into at this point. read more

Video of the Week: “Beach Blanket Bingo”

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Nov 12, 2014

As temperatures plummet across the United States, and here in Portland we’re preparing for the possibility of our first snowstorm of the year, it seems only fitting that we start thinking about summer again. Here, then, is another one from the archives – South Dakota Slim’s big sce read more

Pic of the Day: “The Outfit” revisited

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Nov 11, 2014

We revisited this film quite recently, but as today is the 115th birthday anniversary of the great Robert Ryan, I couldn’t help but showcase it once again. Mobster Mailer (Ryan) is unimpressed by the predicament his freshly injured torpedo Jake Menner has gotten himself into. We have sung Rya read more

Quote of the Week

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Nov 9, 2014

He was expelled from five schools in his native Brooklyn, the Marine Corps and nearly every job he’s tried while hitch-hiking across the country. He’s slept in vacant lots and cellars. Despite the fact he works regularly in Hollywood, he bought a four room house 25 miles away in a poor s read more

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Nov 6, 2014

Quote of the Week

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Nov 2, 2014

In reality, Carey was a restless, completely dedicated performer who counted John Cassavetes among his closest friends, and acted each role “like it’s the last film I’m gonna make, and I want it to be the best” (Carey.) His self-made 1962 masterpiece THE WORLD’S GREATEST SINNER – read more
