Did You Know?


Record producer Mickie Most originally conceived this as a vehicle for Paul McCartney in the role of Clavius, but he was offered the role during the time of the break-up of The Beatles in 1970 and declined it. When Most met up with McCartney he later described him as "looking a bit like Jim Morrison after a bender". See more »

Sondra Locke's Description of TSCOS
3 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

These quotes are from The Good, The Bad & The Very Ugly; A Hollywood Journey, by Sondra Locke (1997). "The script of his (Barry's) upcoming film had been inspired by Leonard Cohen's haunting song "Suzanne" and was the story of three men- an artist and a director and a newsman- who all love Suzanne and are all changed in some way by her innate goodness and purity. The screenplay was quirky and dreamlike..." (123).

Locke was brave to take part in this abstract vision, and to risk possible injury in the shots captured from a helicopter. She shared her beautiful physical form with the world in two shots with Paul Sand, and these are very special now considering what Locke weathered later on in her personal life.

Instead of simply complaining, do a little research now and then.
