Suddenly, the bartender from the saloon, Lloyd (Turkel), appears and gives him whiskey, even though Torrance has no money. “I like you, Lloyd, I’ve always liked you,” Torrence says. “You were always the best of them. Best damn bartender from Timbuktu to Portland, Maine, to Portland, Oregon for that matter.”

When Torrence returns to the room, Lloyd’s is still behind the bar, but it is now filled with party guests from the 1920s. Turkel speaks a total of 96 words in his two scenes. In 2014, he noted that rehearsals lasted six weeks as “Stanley discovered the perfect shot” and that he was on set one day from 9 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. “I went to my dressing room, took off my shirt, took off my T-shirt and passed out (sweating).

thanks for doing flashScott cast him as Dr. Alden Tyrell blade Runner (1982). “Jo had such a waxy make-up or quality to her skin,” says the director in the DVD commentary for the film, “and Joe was so clean-shaven that he almost resembled polished ivory.”

Tyrell, who lives in a giant pyramid, runs a corporation that makes replicas with a lifespan of four years: “Human more than human,” says his company’s slogan.

At the end of the film, while dressed in thick white robes and oversized glasses, Tyrell is visited by his most prized and advanced replica, Roy Batty (Rutger Hauer), who demands an expiring life extension. Tyrell tells him that “a light that burns twice as bright lasts half the time, and you’ve lit very, very brightly, Roy.”

In one of the film’s most jaw-dropping moments, Batty, unable to satisfy his wish to his producer, kisses Tyrell on the lips before gnawing his head and eyes with his bare hands.

For a bloody effect, tubes were placed behind Turkel’s ears, and when Hauer (his first day on set) began squeezing her face, makeup artist Marvin G. Westmore pumped fake blood through the tubes. The team created a fictional prosthetic head for Turkel, but it was never used on screen. This would find a home in the office of visual effects master Douglas Trumbull.
