Happy Halloween!

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Oct 31, 2014

In what is turning out to be my annual Halloween pic, here once again is Timothy costumed as Frankenstein’s monster for the legendary early 1980s Sambo’s commercial that has apparently disappeared into the ether. It’s become my personal Holy Grail of Careyana. (Many thanks to Romeo read more

Video of the Week: “Most inexplicable line reading of all time” revisited

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Oct 29, 2014

For this week’s video (by hubby’s special request) we revisit Timothy’s infamous “Atta boy Mike” scene from Bob Rafelson‘s Head (1968), the very strange first – and last – feature film from the Monkees. As I’ve said before with regards to this fi read more

Pic of the Day: “Revolt in the Big House” promotional still

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Oct 28, 2014

To celebrate the long-awaited official commercial DVD release of Revolt in the Big House (1958), our pic today is another promotional still from that very film. Lou Gannon (Gene Evans) and Bugsy Kyle confer during said revolt. The Warner Archive Collection is a great source for several of Timothy&# read more

Pic of the Day: “The Outfit” revisited

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Oct 28, 2014

Today’s pic is another one from John Flynn‘s The Outfit (1973). Earl Macklin (Robert Duvall) is about to put the hurt big time on mean thug Jake Menner. Duvall has been one of our most gifted actors since the early 1960s, when he began appearing in series television, anthologies and Wes read more

Quote of the Week

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

But Carey’s genius was the very thing that kept him from ever having a chance at being a famous actor. Famous actors demand love. Carey loved to be hated. You look at him in a scene–take one of his two scenes in Kubrick‘s The Killing–and he’s just the most despicable ba read more

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

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Oct 24, 2014

We’ll be closing out the week by taking another look at Flo, the enigmatic muscle behind a gang of mediocre Hollywood gangsters in John Cassavetes‘ The Killing of a Chinese Bookie (1976). In a film full of great close-ups, this is one of the best. Ara Corbett tells us in the Filmfax art read more

Pic of the Day: “Flight to Hong Kong” revisited

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

Our pic today takes a long-overdue look at Flight to Hong Kong (1956), the low-budget international diamond-smuggling caper directed by Joseph M. Newman. It looks like something inappropriate is going on here, but it’s just Tony Dumont (Rory Calhoun) trying to get thug Lagarto out of the way s read more

Video of the Week: “Bayou” fight scene

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Oct 22, 2014

Another one from the archives! This is Timothy and Peter Graves‘ big fight scene at the end of Bayou (1957), aka Poor White Trash, directed by Harold Daniels. The entire film has been building up to this, and it’s worth the wait. Also appearing are Lita Milan and Jonathan Haze. Enjoy! Fi read more

Pic of the Day: “The Adventure of Caesar’s Last Sleep” revisited

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Oct 20, 2014

Our week begins with another look at the Ellery Queen episode “The Adventure of Caesar’s Last Sleep,” first airing on March 14, 1976. Rent-a-hit-man Bonner is on the phone clearing up some details with his latest client. Also seen in this episode (no scenes with Timothy, unfortuna read more

Quote of the Week

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

That long face, those droopy eyes – Timothy Carey is unmistakable, unpredictable, and electrifying with those lizard features that became both a blessing and a curse. [...] A true maverick known for improvising and getting fired, he’s worked with Roger Corman, Coppola, and Cassavetes, including read more

Video of the Week: “Moonrock Mambo” by Yo La Tengo

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Oct 15, 2014

Thanks to Careyphile Eric Levy over at the Criterion page, I have discovered a contemporary song that name-checks Timothy! Check out “Moonrock Mambo” by Yo La Tengo, and pay close attention at about the 3:02 mark. I knew these guys were cool, but their coolness factor just shot up a thou read more

Pic of the Day: “Ransom for a Dead Man” revisited

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

Columbus Day? Forget that. Here at the TCE it’s Columbo Day. Presenting our first glimpse of Bert, confidant of Lt. Columbo (Peter Falk) and the friendly chili slinger of Barney’s Beanery in the inaugural Columbo episode, “Ransom for a Dead Man”. The date was March 1, 1971. B read more

Quote of the Week

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

Carey is a Brooklyn boy who never went far in high school but has acted in 16 films and six TV shows. He says: “What I really want to do is write. I’ve got a script right here, which I call L.A., that I’d like you to read.” Carey isn’t about to quote Shakespeare but he’s living proof read more

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

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

As I head off this morning for my second 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

Pic of the Day: “I’ll Cry Tomorrow” revisited

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

Today’s pic is another from Timothy’s fleeting, uncredited appearance as the drunken denizen of a tawdry flophouse in Daniel Mann‘s I’ll Cry Tomorrow (1955). He’s sidling over to get a better look at that biopic’s subject, Broadway star Lillian Roth (Susan Hayward read more

Quote of the Week

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

You won’t believe [Carey's] performance [in The World's Greatest Sinner]. He just starts shaking and his hair falls down . . . He must have watched Jerry Lee Lewis or something. He starts rolling around on the stage, he’s just shaking all over. It’s a live performance and he’ read more

Pic of the Day: “The Deadly Quest Affair” revisited

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Oct 3, 2014

Our pic of the day takes another look at “The Deadly Quest Affair,” the episode of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. that first aired on October 30, 1967. Stefan, the strong arm behind deranged bad guy Viktor Karmak (Darren McGavin), is beginning to doubt the wisdom of being employed by a guy like read more

Video of the Week: “Beware! No Trespassing”

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Oct 1, 2014

Our video this week revisits the Cowboy G-Men episode “Beware! No Trespassing”. It was first broadcast on November 1,1952. Timothy and Robert Lowery are stirring up some trouble at a tungsten mine. I’d like to express my gratitude to all the folks who are rescuing these obscure tel read more

Pic of the Day: “Change of Habit” revisited

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

And now for a long-overdue look at the rude and probably racist grocery manager of Change of Habit (1969), Elvis Presley‘s last feature film. He has just realized that the mild-mannered nun he just sold a mop handle to is in fact his crusading nemesis, Sister Barbara (Jane Elliot). Timothy wa read more

Pic of the Day: “Ain’t We Got Fun” revisited

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Sep 29, 2014

Classic cinematic tough guy Ted de Corsia was born in Brooklyn, New York, on this date in either 1903 or 1905. He co-starred with fellow Brooklynite Timothy four times: in Crime Wave (1954), The Killing (1956), the Profiles in Courage episode “Andrew Johnson” (first aired February 28, 19 read more
