“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 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.
