Mailer by the Bay.” Article-interview by David Thomason. California, August, 66–69, 124, 126. Important interview that ranges over all of Mailer’s films through Tough Guys Don’t Dance, as well as his experience going to the movies as an adolescent. He recalls asking Burt Lancaster to play Lt. Hearn in a film version of The Naked and the Dead: “And Burt wanted to do it but the war in Korea started, and there was no way then of making a fairly serious movie of the book.”
