Timothy Carey

Having just watched Killing of A Chinese Bookie, I can't get Timothy Carey out of my mind. What an actor. What else should I see with him in it?


  1. He is really great in Paths of Glory. Like, super nuts good.

  2. Carey is REALLY creepy in a couple of Beach Party movies... In one [HOW TO STUFF A WILD BIKINI, I think?], he ties a gal to a log in a sawmill! He calls everybody "boobie" and keeps intoning that he's gonna "take [the gal] to my boobie house"... This comes across as pretty much ad-libbed in feel, but from a pretty unhinged mind...

    Also, I have a great MUNSTERS episode where Carey recites beatnik poetry!! [You've probably already seen THE WORLD'S GREATEST SINNER, Carey's magnum opus?]
