The older one gets, the more we look back and remember the work we have done. I worked on this TV movie. My scene was during the prom. I was in my 20s and was cast as a prom waiter.

ON A PERSONAL NOTE: This TV movie was filmed at the Ambassador Hotel (since demolished) in Los Angeles. This is the location where Robert F. Kennedy was shot. Since I am fascinated by RFK, JFK etc., it was a bit eerie for me to be so near to where Bobby was shot. At least the prom scenes were not held in that particular ballroom. There is a great deal of down time when filming, so I went to the Embassy ballroom to check it out. It was empty at the time, so I went to where the podium was located when Bobby gave his speech. I even stood there and said, "Now, it is on to Chicago and let's win there." I then turned around, and took the route he took into the hallway going into the kitchen. Yes, they could have taken a different way, but it was too crowded, they noted at the time. I ended up in the kitchen pantry, where shots rang out in June of 1968. Again, an eerie feeling took over me. I looked all over carefully, and that included the door panels, etc. I was wearing my waiter outfit, which I had filming. And, if you remember, it was a waiter who was by RFK's side after he was shot.
TV items will go here. The vast ways of watching shows now is not a good thing, in my opinion. It has watered down entertainment. There is too much product. So, I will not delve into all the ways to watch, but rather concentrate on the way I covered it for years. Nostalgia will be a theme and if something deserves attention, I may report it.
