Robert Duvall

This could be a "Brush With Greatness" deal, but I don't have the actual proof that I met him, so be it. Charlie Brennan interviewed Robert Duvall this morning. There was great commotion. My sales bud Sherman and I tried to corral him in the building but couldn't. We thought he went out the back way. I had an appointment (that I postponed becasue of Charlie's great interview), so I left via the front door. As I am leaving the building, someone has stopped Mr. Duvall to get a picture, right in front of me. Me, not being shy, I walk up to him and I say, "Mr. Duvall, I just want to say thank you." "No, thank you", he replied. "Uh, no sir, thank you for your body of work", I said. "Well, thanks", he said and that was that. It's a mystery world, ain't it? How fun. Robert Duvall. Damn.

His role as Tom Hagen in "The Godfather" is but one of MANY well-performed roles in his prolific career. You could have said, "Thank you for the dinner and a very pleasant evening. If your car could take me to the airport...Mr. Corleone is a man who insists on hearing bad news immediately."

Great blog! I'm anxious to read more about your all-time top albums.
