Took a wee break from setting up next week's sale. We were invited to Galeria Sparta on the Sunset Strip for the opening of an art showing by Richard Grieco. A wonderful event. For the second time in my life, I had the opportunity to meet and chat with Mickey Rooney (the first time was over 20 years ago when Mr. Rooney accidentally walked into my PR office on Sunset. He was offered some coffee and stayed for over an hour relating some stories of Patton, Bugsy Siegel, Ava Gardner, Judy Garland, etc). This guy's a true legend whose life spans film's history.
On the business side, the gallery owner was infinitely pleasant and there may be a strong opportunity to effect more fine arts appraisals in the West Hollywood/Beverly Hills region. I will keep you posted on what transpires
