Gene at my door
One Sunday afternoon in December, 1989, Gene stopped by my place and suggested we go to a movie. Since I already had plans to see a film that day with my friend and writing partner, Cheryl Blythe, all three of us headed to the recently opened Universal Odeon Cineplex to catch Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner in Danny Devito's black comedy, "The War of the Roses." We all enjoyed the film, but the best part for me was having an unplanned afternoon with Gene -- I always loved it when he found a few hours to get away and pop by!
