I never told Roderick Mann I turned down everything after "Harold and Maude" (Quibbles & Bits, July 5). What I said was I turned down all film offers for a five-year period following the films completion in an attempt to avoid typecasting. Obviously, I have worked since, some very good films ("Why Shoot the Teacher?," "She Dances Alone") and some stinkers (two of which you so kindly mentioned).
Personally, I prefer to concentrate on the positive aspects of my career. And the reason for doing the interview in the first place was to publicize a TV movie, not to list my credits.
For the record, I also never said to Mr. Mann that I was sick of being thought of as Bud ("Harold and Maude") Cort. I love that film and am very proud to have been a part of it.
