A quick, previously unpublished memory about Robert Forster during his much-hyped film debut by a certain co-star -- himself a tough-guy actor and now dearly departed.
"I remember Forster on the set of REFLECTIONS IN A GOLDEN EYE. He was very shy. I felt that everybody was watching him to see how he'd perform. Forster was well aware what a great opportunity he had been given by [John] Huston. These are just my feelings. I never really socialized with him, and we didn't really have any scenes together."
