The Wrath of Fagin

October 31st, 2014

mood2He was such an unassuming little old gentleman, just shy of 90 years of age in fact, that it was hard to believe that this was Ron Moody, who had played the villianous Fagin in the 1968 Oscar winning Best Picture Oliver! His former co-stars Mark Lester and Shani Wallis were sitting nearby, but I had already gotten them earlier in the year at the April Hollywood Show in Los Angeles. I was pleased as punch that Mr. Moody had agreed to do this Hollywood Show in Chicago on September 7, 2013, along with them. Read the rest of this entry »

jon2In this case it was at the Chiller Theatre show in Parsippany, New Jersey on April 27, 2013. I had incorrectly assumed that Larry Wilcox, who played Jonathan “Jon” Baker opposite Erik Estrada as Ponch in the TV motorcycle cop series CHiPs. It would have seemed like a no-brainer that he would have been at a show or two, especially one where Estrada was appearing. But this show just ended up being the first one that he had been asked to – at least according to him. And right away he was clearly in the swing of some rather expensive pricing: $25 for an autograph, $15 for a photo with him. But there was no way that I wasn’t going to complete the set.
