"So in 1964, after 51 straight years in pictures, Walsh quietly folded up his directing chair and faded away, like so many of the movies he had made —"
Leading ladies? Cowboy hats? Money? In this interview, acclaimed director Walter Hill ("Broken Trail," "Geronimo," "48 Hours") recalls advice, both memorable and funny, that he was given in an early meeting with the legendary director Raoul Walsh ("High Sierra," "White Heat").
"Peter Bogdanovich interviewed Walsh twice, the first time in 1970. He remembered: [Walsh] was very friendly, and his wife [Mary] was very hospitable. She made us some great orange juice from oranges they had growing there. It was a sprawling ranch style, but not that big."
"He was not that tall by then, maybe five foot ten or so. Oh, he was attractive, though, still attractive. He was very vital and funny. He was a guy. Men aren’t like that anymore. He was macho but he was gentle, and he liked women. He wasn’t the type of macho guy who doesn’t like women that [we] mostly [have] now. He was kind of courtly". —"Raoul Walsh: The True Adventures of Hollywood's Legendary Director" (2011) by Marilyn Ann Moss

HIS OWN BIGGEST FAN!
A couple of nights ago I read a book review of a biography on Walsh by a lady named Marilyn Moss. I can't find the review or I'd link it. The bio was published in the early 2000s. Quite a story of one of America's best directors. As mentioned, he wore an eye patch after a jackrabbit went through his windshield as he was driving on a backwater hiway in Utah, splintering glass into his eye. When told he could be fitted with an artificial eye, he said it would be too much trouble as he would have to remove it every time he got into a fight, ha.
Directors were sometimes famous as actors then, as now, and Walsh's life story was always embellished by his own imagination. But, like John Huston, it was a life of motion and adventure. Thanks for bringing him up on the forum Joe.
