"I worked for Peckinpah," Mike says.
"About six or seven guys with Bill Holden. I said, 'What are you trying to
prove, Sam? I've worked on pictures where there was a lot of fighting, but no stabbing
and cutting guts and poking your eyes out and things
like that. It's uncalled for.' I walked out on him." "The same thing with
sex," Abie wheezes, maybe
recalling how Al and Bugsy got all the girls. Mike only laughs at the
thought of too much sex. "Sex is not you, Mike," says Vince. "No. Not my
type. I'm supposed to be a big he-man, although I don't approve or
disapprove of it. I can take sex or leave it. It's like drinking. You ask
if I'm a teetotaler, I say, 'No. I enjoy a drink. I'll drink with you.'
But I don't have to go overboard.""What about Anita Ekberg?" "What
the hell," Mike mutters. "I got along
with all my leading ladies. I got along fine--Gene Tierney, Maureen
O'Hara. Gosh. Anita." "The big bazoom girl," Vince chuckles. "What's
that?" Abie asks. "Bazooms," Mike says, matter-of-factly. "Gee, she was
beautiful. I used to take her out to dinner over in San Francisco. We shot
Blood Alley in San Rafael, so I took her to San Francisco twice, three
week. Restaurants. Piano bars. Things like that. We got along real
wonderful.""Bazooms?" asks Abie again. "Bazooms," Vince echoes
flatly. "You never heard that expression? She had a 350 bazoom?" "Did you
ever see the picture, Four from Texas?" Mike asks Abie. "I was
right-hand man. I had a couple of scenes where I'm doin' his nails and
Anita's giving him a shave. She's stooping over and you see her bazooms."
He gives Abie a knowing look. "Get it, Abie?"
