As part of the ongoing research for FLotU78, I’m reading When The Going Gets Weird, one of the (many) bios about Hunter. Here is Peter Boyle’s reaction when he met HST while filming Where The Buffalo Roam:
On the coffee-shop patio of Universal Studios, Boyle found the forty-two-year old Thompson finishing lunch . . . Hunter consumed a club sandwich with a couple of beers, and then ordered chocolate cake and a double Wild Turkey. What kind of creature do we have here? was Boyle’s immediate thought.
And my immediate thought was: What’s the problem? Sounds like a pretty damned good lunch.
