“Mailer’s Minuet: ‘Tough Guys’ Two Left Feet.” Article-interview by Karen Jaehne. Film Comment 23 (November-December), 11–17. Mailer says more on filmmaking, and says it well, in this interview than in any other, and dissipates, to some extent, Jaehne’s initial skepticism about his abilities. He also discusses his resistance to “categories” which are “just critics’ attempt to bring order to a complex aesthetic universe.” “Forms,” he says should “be explored, not obeyed.” Tom Luddy, Wings Hauser and Frances Fisher are also quoted.
