Video of the Week: “Chesty Anderson U.S. Navy”

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Dec 30, 2015

OH MY GOD. Shield your eyes, folks, it’s Chesty Anderson U.S. Navy (1976) in its entirety. Horrible print, horrible film, and Timothy’s most over-the-top, unhinged performance ever. Well, maybe tied with The World’s Greatest Sinner (1962). Co-star Rosanne Katon told Shock Cinema m read more

Quote of the Week

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Dec 27, 2015

Carey directed a 1962 film, The World’s Greatest Sinner. It’s a low, low, low budget movie, scored by a young, pre-Mothers Frank Zappa. It offended 1962 audiences so bad, it was not theatrically released. It’s so rare and obscure, I’ve never seen it. Any way for your pleasur read more

Quote of the Week

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Dec 20, 2015

My other favorite memory [of filming The Killing of a Chinese Bookie (1976)] is the image of Timothy Carey (a great character actor) who brought to the set with him a dwarf valet.  Mr.  Carey wore white gloves and before every shot he was a part of, he would take off the gloves and hand them to his read more

Quote of the Week

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Dec 13, 2015

This week’s quote is from an independently published memoir by and about Robert Austin Brady, acting coach and former member of the American Mime Theater. He was briefly employed as assistant and driver to Stanley Kubrick, just before Kubrick started shooting 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968). Appa read more

Videos of the Week: “Paths of Glory”and “Minnie & Moskowitz”

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Dec 9, 2015

Today is the birthday anniversary of not one but two great men who played important roles in Timothy’s career. After wondering why I never noticed this before, I thought it fitting to pay tribute to both of them at once. First up is Kirk Douglas, who turns an incredible 99 years old today. He read more

Quote of the Week

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Dec 6, 2015

Timothy Carey is a maverick actor, a perfectionist, and according to one film critic, “the world’s greatest ham.” […] Carey claims that director Stanley Kubrick once cautioned him to control his performance as Private Ferol in the 1957 Paths to [sic] Glory. “‘Make read more

Robert Loggia 1930 – 2015

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Dec 4, 2015

Well this is not how I wanted to end “Timothy in Color Week,” I can assure you. Robert Loggia, character actor and tough guy extraordinaire, passed away today at the age of 85. He and Timothy only made one film together, the drive-in classic Speedtrap (1975). To mark his passing, letR read more

Pic of the Day: “Peeper” revisited

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Dec 3, 2015

Today’s pic brings us around once again to Peeper (1975), the amiable homage to 1940s detective yarns directed by Peter Hyams and written by Keith Laumer and W.D. Richter. Bad guys Sid and Rosie (Don Calfa) take care of some business while Ellen Prendergast (Natalie Wood) looks on and another read more

Video of the Week: “One-Eyed Jacks”

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Dec 2, 2015

Our video for “Timothy In Color Week” is the full-length feature film directed by (his only effort) and starring Marlon Brando, One-Eyed Jacks (1961). Tim absconds with his scenes as Howard Tetley, town drunk, bully and lech. Several of Tim’s scenes, such as the one where he fight read more

Pic of the Day: “Across the Wide Missouri” revisited

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Dec 1, 2015

Our “Timothy in color” theme this week continues with another look at his first verifiable film role (the jury is still out regarding his supposed appearance in Billy Wilder‘s Ace in the Hole, aka The Big Carnival), that of a corpse in William Wellman‘s Across the Wide Missou read more

Pic of the Day: “Ambush” revisited

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Nov 30, 2015

We have a theme this week, and it’s “Timothy in color.” So let’s get the ball rolling with “Ambush,” the episode of Kung Fu that was first aired on April 4, 1975. Grumpy outlaw Bix Courtney is, well, grumpy. This episode was one of the earliest instances in which read more

Quote of the Week

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Nov 29, 2015

Modern hipsters didn’t invent the cult actor. Oh, we might all feel really cool raving about icons like Christopher Walken or newcomers like Michael Shannon. There’s still a long history of weirdo artists infiltrating our movie theaters and living rooms. Just consider the epic strangeness of Timothy read more

Video of the Week: “The Blackbirder” revisited

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Nov 25, 2015

Two weeks without posting – yikes! My apologies, folks. Well, as tomorrow’s Thanksgiving here in the US, I thought I would make our Video of the Week something that we can all be extremely thankful for. We’ve shown it before, but here it is again – Timothy’s performance read more

Video of the Week: “Song for Lilly Christine” by Big Rude Jake revisited

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Nov 11, 2015

As I head off this morning for my third BurlyCon experience, I leave you with this video that I’ve shared before (but I have a feeling you won’t mind too much). Timothy arrived in LaFitte, Louisiana in the fall of 1956 to begin filming Bayou. He had an unusual assignment from the film’s read more

Quote of the Week

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Nov 8, 2015

The first day I visited Universal Pictures in 1978, I met a legendary actor at the studio commissary. Timothy Carey. I went up to talk with him. He didn’t look as he did in the movies, but I sure recognized him. Whatever quality he had on the screen floated around him like a wraith. You know w read more

Pic of the Day: “The Killing of a Chinese Bookie” revisited

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Nov 6, 2015

A shot of Timothy as Flo, the garrulous gangster of John Cassavetes‘ The Killing of a Chinese Bookie (1976), can make any day better. “There’s hope, there’s hope, there’s hope!” Fill in your details below or click an icon to log in: You are commenting using your read more

Charles Herbert 1948 – 2015

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Nov 4, 2015

We were very sad to learn today of the sudden death on Halloween of Charles Herbert, child star of the 1950s and ’60s and Timothy’s nemesis in Bert I. Gordon‘s The Boy and the Pirates (1960). As it’s Video of the Week Wednesday, we dug into the archives and are re-posting thi read more

Quote of the Week

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Nov 1, 2015

I apologize for not posting anything last week. It was a rough week for me – I lost both my cat and my father the previous weekend. I promise to get back on track this week! The third of the four titular convicts was Timothy Carey, an oddball supporting actor usually cast as a psychopath. Care read more

Quote of the Week

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Oct 25, 2015

The greatness of Timothy Carey, and indeed his essence, is the man as a symbol. It is not so much what he has done for others, but what others have done and will do because of his example. This is the true measure of the man. What has come out of his artistic work, his life and examples, is the kind read more

Video of the Week: “The World’s Greatest Sinner” revisited

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Oct 21, 2015

The late, great, legendary Lux Interior of The Cramps would have been 69 years old today. He was a huge fan of Timothy and The World’s Greatest Sinner (1962). In his honor and memory, I am re-posting this video that features God Hilliard working his voodoo magic, accompanied by Frank ZappaR read more
