Day of the Locust (1975) Directed by John Schlesinger from the novel by Nathanael West. Karen Black as Fay Greener and William Atherton as Tod Hackett (not pictured)
Tod: I love you.
Fay: Don’t say that!
Tod: It’s true.
Fay: Love’s special.
Tod: Yes, it is.
Fay: Don’t make me hurt you. You’re very kind and clever, but I could only let a really rich man love me. I could only love someone criminally handsome. Please try to understand. That’s how I am. I’m sorry.
