“Cinema’s Wild Man: Mailer Movies at Coolidge Corner.” Article-interview by Paul Restuccia. Boston Herald American, 5 November, Sec. B, p. 6. Mailer comments on his films after a showing of Maidstone (71.28) by the Institute of Contemporary Art at Coolidge Corner Theater in Brookline, Mass., and later at a bar. He says: “One reason I started making films was that I was upset about the movies made from my books….I knew ‘An American Dream’ wasn’t going to be very good because the novel[1] took place in New York and they filmed it in L.A. Anybody who could do that doesn’t know lox from tuna salad.” See 82.19a, 82.21.
