GREGORY WALCOTT INTERVIEW FOR HIS 87TH BIRTHDAY!

Gregory Walcott, veteran character and member of the Clint Eastwood stock company, recently celebrated his 87th birthday on January 13th. So, for this auspicious occassion, I have taken the liberty of posting my interview with him from Filmfax Magazine. He agreed to the interview as part of my research for Lee Marvin: Point Blank, having worked with the actor in Prime Cut (1972). His colorful anecdotes about working with Marvin all went into the book but I found his career so fascinating, I asked if he would be willing to expand on it for a full magazine article. He readily agreed and, from 1998, I give you the results. Happy birthday Greg, I wish you at least 87 more. Enjoy one and all!

As a postscript to the above article, I can proudly say that Walcott was so enamored with what I wrote, he contacted the magazine and penned the following letter of praise. It was published in the next issue, and what can I say? Talk about a mensch! What a guy!!

  1. When Tom Betts and I met him at a collectibles show we kidded with him about “Plan 9.” Very nice man and he seemed to enjoy our remarks.
