"PROBABLY THE WORST THING I EVER DID"

"I hate to go out to dinner, period! I had a million excuses.
The food's no good. The food's good, but over-priced. The
food's o.k., but the place is too far. The food and music are
lousy. The service is horrible. Last week I ran out of excuses."

mid-Manhattan is stagger-

by his windows, as if peeking
in to take a furtive look at a
star.
Attired in a red cardigan,
ruddy and ready for another
day of decision-making, he is

ideas and concerns that the
world has taken leave of its
senses.
Articulate and affable,
King peers out the window
and sips from a drink. He
then takes a puff from a
cigarette, the smoke spirall-
ing to the ceiling.
King's reputation is that of
a shrewd businessman; as a
movie producer Wolfen, he
invests in talent that pays
off.

King is in good humor
talking about the script for
the somber Enemies, a Love
Story, a new film based on
an I.B. Singer story about a
Holocaust survivor caught
up in relationships with
three women, two of whom
are his wives. King portrays
a wheeling-dealing rabbi in

King smiles. He has good
memories of both Braverman
(1968) and Enemies, which
recently finished filming in
Montreal. "Look," he says,
