This is the second interview by Joe Hyams of Stephen Boyd. Apparently Joe Hyams found Stephen to be “a bore” in this interview, which only happened two years after the first one (see https://stephenboydblog.wordpress.com/2017/01/08/good-at-research-stephen-boyd-serious-in-romantic-ventures-by-joe-hyams-interview-from-1960/). In my opinion, however, Boyd hasn’t changed, as Joe Hyams seems to think. By this point in his career, Stephen has more to lose, and so obviously he’s taking things very seriously. Or maybe Stephen didn’t feel like turning up the Irish charm for this conversation or giving any tabloid fodder to Hyams! Anyway, in this interview Stephen talks about his financial security, and praises the acting ability (and figure) of his most recent co-star Doris Day. Stephen had also just completed filming “Imperial Venus” in Italy with Gina Lollobrigida and was just about to start the filming of “The Fall of the Roman Empire” in Spain.
