NOTES

"It does not detract from Davis' talent to note that the roles he played had an odd resonance in his life. Nevertheless the impresssion he gave was of a thoughtful, generous person, without the edge his drug experience or his illness might have given him.

He seemed to specialize in playing brooding hotheads--such a role in an early '70s play called "Naomi Court" brought him to Hollywood's attention. But Davis himself had a vulnerability, a solicitude for the concerns of the playwright and director not typical of actors."--Howard Kissel in an appreciation of Davis's career (NEW YORK POST, September 12, 1991)

"I make my money in an industry that professes to care very much about he fight against AIDS--that gives umpteen benefits and charity affairs with proceeds going to research and care. But in actual fact, if an actor is even rumored to have HIV he gets no support on an individual basis. He does not work."--Brad Davis (excerpted from a proposal for a book he planned to write on his experience of living with AIDS for six years; quoted in LOS ANGELES TIMES, September 11, 1991)
