Baker's recent take on Something Wild
I just saw a screening of Something Wild at the Palm Springs Film Noir Film Festival. Miss Baker attended, was interviewed afterwards and answered questions.
She said and her husband both wanted to make this film, and they did it the way they wanted. Arron Copland saw it (without music) and expressed interest in writing a film score to it. Baker is very proud of his involvement. In addition to this she basically paid his high fee herself: she said she had to "Do a few westerns" afterwards to pay his fee. <G>
She asked the audience if they could see why her character stayed with Meeker's at the end of the film. Very few people said they did. "Well, there you have it." she said.
She added that she was very happy that her colleagues (all from the Actor's Studio, as she was) in the film went on to become stars.
She also looked very good, by the way. <G>
