Mae West: Timothy Bonded

MAE WEST was the primary topic of conversation when one of her leading men was interviewed.
• • Timothy Dalton on Penny Dreadful, serenading Mae West, being James Bond • •
• • Sextette (1978) — — “Sir Michael Barrington” • •
• • Timothy Dalton: Ah. Well. Well, well, well. Now, then. Let’s see how we can dance around this one…
• • AV Club: You can dance while “Love Will Keep Us Together” plays in the background, if you like.
• • TD: Yesssssss. I tried singing that, you know.
• • AVC: Oh, I know. The clip is on YouTube.
• • TD: Well then, you know I’m not a good singer. [Laughs.] But I don’t think that’s me doing the singing! I don’t think it is, anyway. Anyway, as you can imagine, it was one of the remarkable, interesting, and extraordinary pieces of work that I have ever been in. Well, for me, it’s more notable for meeting Mae West and getting to know her.
