“Don’t Call Me Max!”

Because Fiona insisted I get some Arnold Moss up on YouTube. Picture Laura Dern saying, “You find me some music on that radio, Sailor Ripley!” Kind of like that.

Moss is Fouché, the louche, and Richard Basehart is “Max” Robespierre. I’m always very interested in Basehart whenever I see him, but what should I see him IN? I have no actual idea what his claim to fame is, I just like the way he transforms his performance style from film to film. Here, he’s awfully good.
