Robert was brought into my life by our mutual friend Crawford Binion. These two southern boys had gone to Vanderbilt together and in the 80's we were all living in Ten Bungalows, a legendary little spot smack dab in the heart of the Hollywood flats. Two blocks from the old Goldwyn Studios. Walking distance(thank God we never had to DRIVE home) from the famous Formosa Bar where ANYBODY in the world could walk in the door at any hour of the day or night...
Check out Bob in The 1985 CLOCK SERIES.
It was while living at Ten Bungalows that our mutual friend and fellow Bungaloid,Steve Meigs, introduced Bob to the love of his life, Lynn Rose. Their wedding at The Four Seasons in Beverly Hills in 1987 is a wedding I will NEVER forget for a number of reasons. It was wildly fun and a large group of us were up most of the night and I was in the middle of shooting Beetlejuice and playing Fatty Arbuckle in Blake Edwards' SUNSET which was Bruce Willis' film debut. I was suppose to be off the day after the wedding but found a message from a SUNSET A.D. when I got home at 4am that I had a 7am call to be on set. I still do not know how I made it through that day but I knew my lines and hit my marks. That section of the movie never made it to the final cut but it was not because of me. I saw the footage. Nevertheless, it taught me a lesson about going to a wild Southern/Jewish wedding while trying to make two studio movies. Oh how sweet it was when they called "Wrap" on THAT day of shooting.
Bob and Lynn celebrate their 22nd wedding anniversary this year. I have a date to have dinner with the two of them on October 17th while I'm working in Nashville.
