Thanks for posting.
Has the picture been taken before or after Schroeder had rented the black & decker?

Their faces would seem to indicate it was taken after that. Those are some check-cashing faces.
 
how blind I was not seeing the link. Thanks.

Why is Schroeder hiding his right arm? Did anything happen during the black&decker-incident we don't know of? - sorry. just joking.

Wasn't there a scene in 'Hollywood', whereSchroeder/Pinchot plans to do a photo together with Hank in front of a 'Cannon'-poster or 'Cannon'-ad? Could it be this one?

You may be right.
Notice the text on the poster in the backgrund:
There's no stopping us!

Hank here looks like an ogre, brrr.

I won't say it's a funny photo, just a highly frightening one, as if he was going to devour us all...
And I find his hands scaring as well.

I've flipped through 'Hollywood' and didn't find the scene, where they make this photo.

But still I'm more sure than ever, I've read about it somewhere!
Hank and Schroeder posing in front of a Cannon-poster, getting into the same pose and aiming at a subtitle that accues them or persiflating the original subtitle.

Anyone?
 
okay, sorry.
it's "accuses" and "making a persiflage out of".
or something similar.
What I'm looking for, is that passage.

This is indeed described in Hollywood, I just read it. Slightly past the halfway point. Jon Pinchot /Barbet Schroeder's plan to sabotage Cannon/Firepower by taking a picture with Hank to mock the Cannon picture for use as an anti-Cannon ad in Variety, pending delivery from Cannon of non-rubber checks to Barbet and Hank. Taken during the filming of Barfly, just before the bathtub scene was filmed.
 
Ah! Thanks for finding that! I knew it must be there!


Jon sat in a chair.
"Are you behind me?"
"Yes."
"Now give a big phoney smile."
I did.
[...]
"Friedman and Fishman had a photo just like that taken last week, Friedman in the chair, Fishman standing behind him, both of them smiling. The photo appeared as a full page ad in Variety. And under it were the words, Firepower will win!"
.....


(Hollywood, chapt. 31)

Shoot me if this has already been discussed but that photo appears in the recent issue of Playboy along with an appreciation of Bukowski written by Schroeder. There's also a piece from the upcoming City Lights book.

See...I DO read the articles.
 
I'm glad to tell you, that we won't need to shoot you, nymark, since the post by David didn't mention this particular photo.

Zombie Bukowski!!! :D

(Btw, people do celebrate dates of death, that is nothing odd or morbid. In France, one celebrated Camus' 50th death anniversary in January. I am myself going to do something special for Ian Curtis' 30th death anniversary on May 18th. Even on Buk.net, people do this :https://bukowskiforum.com/showthread.php?t=138 ;) )

I have some morbid and odd tastes but don't worry Bruder, I won't hang myself after watching Stroszek on May 18th.

I find him frightening because when I see him here, I can't help thinking to a golem in a tv cartoon which terrified me as a child.

Indeed, Roni! My sentence was clumsy; I meant that death anniversaries are an occasion to celebrate a man/woman and his/her work (and not to rejoice at his/her past death!), as it was done in France with Camus in January through exhibitions, readings, lectures and the release of a bunch of books on him.

Appreciate your friends
There is a difference
between "celebrating" ones day of death
and commemorating him on that occasion.
I just attended a celebration of life this afternoon. An old friend and boss died of leukemia on Monday they got together at a little bar to celebrate his life. He would have liked that.
 

Thanks Gerard
It is there but also where I said on "buk tapes" pg and on "barfly" pg
I just posted some other good Buk photos...Buk on the Barfly set...that Barbet found recently in his archives. Check them out:
http://www.barbetschroeder.com/movies/barfly-1987/

BTW, I asked Barbet details about that famous photo of them laughing. Yes, it was staged specifically to mimic that Variety ad in the background of Menahem and Golan Globus of Cannon. Barbet and Buk are posing just like them in the ad in the same positions. It was taken by a photographer named Sophie Calle.
 
All,
FYI The "Black and Decker" incident from HOLLYWOOD is online with the photo; Barbet's commented:

According to Schroeder:
"It is 80% true but:
1) It was never my intention to cut more than the end of the left little finger. I just did not have the time to go to a lawyer, that is why I had to chose the firm Black & Decker.
2) My plan was to do eventually do a press conference holding the finger and then go to the hospital to try to have it sewn up again."
