A Moment with Melanie Griffith. . .

_MG_0005 -2 _ppWell, not exactly folks. Bear with me for another adventure in movie-land. Picture this: The scene is Bellview Hospital on the East side of NY. I’m sitting with my fellow background artists in a large chapel, dressed as a patient in a pink robe and fuzzy slippers, a shower cap on my head–don’t ask. All of a sudden, the famous director Sidney Lumet, a hands on man, beckoned me with a crook of his finger. “You.” Words to live by. Shuffling behind him fast as I can, he points to a spot against the wall where actors–designated Hasid’s–are already lined up. I stand ready to serve and obey. Little did I know the fun had just begun. A box appeared for me to stand on. I climbed up. Lights adjusted. Listening carefully, I heard I was standing in for Melanie Griffith. Okay. More money. Then an assistant plunked a black hat on my head. Now I looked like a Hasid. Stifling a giggle, I stood– tall black hat, pink robe, fuzzy slippers, little me standing on a box. Here it comes. A tall handsome actor dressed like the other men, obviously the co-star, stood next to me. Mr. Lumet checked out his side curls and called for make-up. Waving a hot curling iron, said curls were set to perfection. Lighting adjusted and finally I was dismissed. They grabbed the hat, the robe and the slippers but the no one could ever take the laugh that remains to this day. Show business. A sweet time.
