I remember when we were rehearsing the hotel scene, he [Mike Nichols] took me into a corner and said, ‘Do you remember the first time you had any action at all?’ And I said yeah. It was a sweater feel. I was in junior high school, playing the piano, doing Al Jolson in blackface, if you can believe that, and this girl was in the show, and we were waiting to be called. And we’re kind of attracted to each other, but I can’t get too close to her because of the blackface. And somehow, at one point, I put my hand on her breast.

"Mike said, ‘Let’s do that scene again, and do that to Annie. Don’t tell her. Just find a place to do it.’ So I got up behind her, and just as she takes her sweater off, I put my hand on her breast. And she was brilliant. She just looked at it, and then went back to her sweater, taking a stain out or something. And I started to break. I took my hand off her breast and I turned away and thought, I’m gonna get fired, because breaking is the worst thing you can do. I turned my back on her and Nichols and walked over to the wall and started banging my head against it. And he goes into hysterics. He said, ‘That’s in the movie.’

Prince, 1980. Photo by Deborah Feingold.
On shooting Prince:"I was shooting for The Soho Weekly News and I got a call from them saying they wanted me to shoot a concert at The Bottom Line. I loved that venue. The editors said to me, ‘This is this guy from Minneapolis. There’s a lot of buzz on him so get some concert shots. And try to go backstage.’ I was freaking out because no one had arranged it. I was a mess. I kept thinking, ‘Oh my god, I have to ask them [to go backstage]? What if they say "no"?’ So I went backstage and a big guy opened the door and I say in a high-pitched voice, ‘I’m from the Soho Weekly News, can I take a shot of Prince?’ He said, ‘Prince doesn’t do backstage photos.’ So I go back to the pit and later feel a tap on my shoulder and it was the guy, who signaled me with his index finger to go backstage. He said, ‘You were so nice about that, why don’t you come backstage and take a few photos.’ They put us in a tiny room, just me and him. I was very nervous. I get Prince on the couch and shoot him horizontally, vertically, tight shots. We didn’t talk. And then I look at him and go, ‘Why don’t you take a picture of me?’ So now I have a photo of me by Prince."
