And they really did fall on my feet. I was barefoot, having shed my red shoes to cavort in the wild orchids with other husbands on opening night. We’d just murdered my Asian bookie and I wanted another event to record in my diary.
I bet my toes throb for like nine and a half weeks (two moons’ worth).
When I was 16 the hardest sexual material I had access to was cable soft core. Zalman had good taste in women. I will give him that. The way he shot Sherilynn Fenn in Two Moon Junction made her look like a sex bomb. But then again, whoever shot The Wraith and Meridien made her look like a sex bomb, too, so maybe that has to do more with Sherilynn just being Sherilynn, but still, Zalman was able to create an erotic atmosphere, and not many directors are able to do that as well as he did, even though one could argue that creating an erotic atmosphere was really all he was good at. But it’s something. Which is better than nothing. Right now I’m working on nothing.
