Quote of the Week

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Apr 12, 2015

The crazy actor who was in Paths of Glory with the big bug eyes was Timothy Carey. He was a method actor. Huge overactor. Carey, who was nuts, doesn’t show up one day. They’re shooting on a tight schedule because they don’t have a lot of money to do it. [Stanley] Kubrick and [produ read more

Quote of the Week

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Apr 5, 2015

Here’s one from the archives; I thought it appropriate for Easter Sunday. And hey, I’m back! But I think, actually, Timothy Carey in his movie The World’s Greatest Sinner did that [dealt with the desecration of the Eucharist]. The film was never released, but it’s one of John read more

Quote of the Week

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Mar 15, 2015

Clarence Hilliard (Carey) is a frustrated insurance salesman who quits his meaningless job one day after he’s struck with the revelation that there is no god but man, and every man is a god whose birthright is eternal life.

Happy Friday the 13th!

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

This has pretty much become my default post for Friday the 13th. We actually have three of them this year, and for some reason I missed last month. So just remember, not all good luck charms are lucky, as the unfortunate Nikki learned in The Killing (1956). Let this be a warning – to you.  Al read more

Quote of the Week

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

In the landscape of television, public access has always been the equivalent to the wild, wild west. You will see and hear things that you would never see on “regular” or “for pay” television. It’s a field that many an artist and personality has created and prospered in. One man that fits read more

It’s National Pancake Day! What better way to celebrate than with a nice hot stack of “super pancakes” served up by Danny, the (unfortunately racist) diner dude from the Starsky and Hutch episode “The Velvet Jungle,” first broadcast on March 5, 1977. Here Danny reveals read more

Quote of the Week

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

Of course, the main reason to see THE WORLD’S GREATEST SINNER is to observe Timothy Carey with the brakes removed. He’s mesmerizing in every scene but subtlety is not his specialty. Some critics have accused him of being a total ham and his scene chewing has an excessive, bigger-than-life quality. read more
