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
