APPEARING

NEW YEAR'S EVE

out a yarmulka embroidered
with the film's title, "Paul
Mazursky, the film's direc-
tor, gave one to each one of
us in the cast."
King fingers the skullcap
carefully, fondly returning it
to the drawer.
It is harder to put away his
memories of making
Memories of Me, last year's
release that wound up
releasing a mix of pain and
happiness for the
actor/comedian.
The film, about the love-
hate relationship between a
Jewish father and son, faded
quickly from the scene.
King's own memories linger
yet. "It was a tremendous
experience for me," says
King. "At times, it was pain-
ful, sure, more so that people
didn't want to see it."
But King saw something
in the screenplay that had
him eager to play the role of
Abe Polin, a coldhearted lout
who learns to warm up to his
estranged son.
For King, the tension bet-
ween the two characters hit
home. "My oldest son and I
are close now," he says, "but
it took time."
There were so many years,
King concedes, when he just
wasn't there for his oldest
son. (He also has another son
and a daughter.) King the
father has learned a lesson
from the painful past to
become one terrific grand-
w father, however. "Let me
show you some pictures," he
says.
He paints a vivid picture of
his own Williamsburg, N.Y.,
childhood. "My father used
to take care of all the impor-
tant things in the world
—like choosing a secretary of
state, a president — and my
mother took care of the
home, like looking after the
children," says King with a
smile.
It was, says King, the best
of all possible worlds. "My
mother was very caring, the
daughter of an itinerant
rabbi. My father was a so-
cialist, a rabble-rouser, an
athe-ist."
"He was very caring,"
recalls King.
King helped care for his
folks during the years. Both
died in their 90s last year
within weeks of each other —
and within yards of each
other's hospital rooms.
King chuckles at how his
father "would do anything to
aggravate my mother. I got
my sense of humor — very
biting — from him."
And what did King learn
from his mom, a woman
who, King recalls, "used to
hide her money in shoes
because she remembered the
