Susan Tyrell (1945-2012)

MEMORIAL TO SUSAN TYRELL

Susan  Tyrell was my first choice for narration on Wizards because her performance in Fat City was a breakthrough === after she did the narration (I think in one or two takes) I was stunned == she did not believe that I thought it was perfect since she was used to multiple takes from directors == we became close friends === I always  told everyone I could how brilliant,  funny, and talented was Susan Tyrell. She’ll be missed.  She was 100 percent professional all the way. Ralph Bakshi
