A Fan Story
This "snapshot" was written by Audrey in her book, Love, Alice.
Fan mail is one thing, but fans you meet in person are
a different matter entirely. Everyone in show business has had the experience of the
fan who is so excited at recognizing their favorite star, they say, "Oh my gosh,
you're my biggest fan!"
But then there is the one who seems to have a hard time separating the actor's work
from reality. Jackie had this experience at Toots Shor's restaurant with Peter
Lorre. A very excited lady spying them came rushing to their table, Peter
Lorre graciously stood up and she exclaimed, "Are you really this short?"
"No indeed," Jackie put in. "We only rushed out for a quick
bite, so he left the rest of himself back at the hotel."
