Re: RARA-AVIS: Cockfighter

Yes, the film is quite good and I'm glad to hear it's being reissued. Willeford started out playing a small role in it, but as budgetary and other matters intruded, his role grew into a significant one. He's quite a good actor (of course, he had quite a bit of experience doing theater, radio broadcasts, and commercials before acting in this film). I'd recommend borrowing a copy of Willeford's COCKFIGHTER JOURNAL (they're pretty expensive to buy these days). It's a gem of a book, recounting his experiences working with Roger Corman (whom he liked), Warren Oates and Harry Dean Stanton (whom he loved), and Monte Hellman (whom he disliked).
