“Mailer Ebullient About His Movie.” Article-interview by Bonnie Barber. Provincetown Advocate, 25 December, 1, 30. Mailer explained that the novel, Tough Guys Don’t Dance was partly about Provincetown: “The movie’s not. The movie could have been shot somewhere else. We would’ve lost a lot of things. We would’ve lost the beauty of Provincetown, but we wouldn’t have lost the essential story.”
