'I wasn't attracted to Jack Lemmon. He was a sweetheart. He didn't have that dangerous, complicated sexual thing that I liked helping the man I was attracted to figure out.Authentically dangerous... is too much. Presumably, Lemmon wasn't even inauthentically dangerous. It's so hard for a fellow to get into exactly the right zone.
"Jack Nicholson had too much of it. He is authentically dangerous."
I had quite a relationship with Robert Mitchum. And Yves Montand...So there you have it. That's the zone. Robert Mitchum. (And Yves Montand...)
Song lyric evoked:
Can I have your autograph?
He said to the fat blonde actress
You know, I've seen every movie you've been in
From "Paths of Pain" to "Jewels of Glory"
And when you kissed Robert Mitchum
Gee, but I thought you'd never catch him
You're over the hill right now, and you're looking for love...
