Beloved Marlo was in LA on one leg of her enormous book tour to promote "Growing Up Laughing." The book is the story of her childhood with all the comics, plus interviews with today's comedians about what makes them really laugh. Marlo, her sister, Terre, plus her nephew Jason and a few other close friends had dinner to celebrate.
I was thrilled when Lesley Ann Warren invited me to accompany her to the Blake Edwards evening at the Academy. I was her manager when she got "Victor, Victoria," and that generates many happy memories. It was fantastic seeing Blake interviewed by Walter Mirisch on stage. What respect they commanded. One was just in awe of the Hollywood history. It was a great night.
Here are Blake and his entire family, Lesley Ann with Frank Gehry, Blake and Julie.
When I met Frank Gehry I was so surprised to meet him that I blurted out, "I like your buildings." Not one of my finer moments, but he was very sweet!
