  • Gordon Scott - I have met Mr. Scott several times. He lived a few blocks from where I work. One day in 2005 he came into the store I work at and he introduced himself after I helped him with his purchase. It took a few minutes before I realized he was Tarzan. He always had a kind word for me, and always said hello when he'd see me on the street.

  • Jon Lovitz - I was driving on Central Park South in New York City, a very busy street with multiple lanes of traffic going one way. A jaywalker jumped in front of my car and I almost hit him. I honked my horn and looked back in my rear view mirror and saw it was Jon Lovitz...yeah, that's the ticket!

  • Harvey Fierstein - I had just gotten off an Amtrak Metroliner from Baltimore and was walking across the main floor of the Pennsylvania Train station in New York City on a busy Friday night. At the time, like most I was in my own little world, head down, no really paying any attention to where I was going with my suit case in tow. Then, I ran, head-first right into someone. I looked up and said, "I'm sorry." In a deep respy voice, the person said, "That's alright". I passed and got about 10 feet before I turned and realized, I had run head-first into Harvey Fierstein...and he was gone.

  • George Lindsey - In 2004 I heard that George Lindsey was going to be at a mall in Marion, Illinois. I just had to go see "Goober" as I'm a huge fan of the Andy Griffith Show, he talked for awile and when they announced he would sign autographs I was about 10th in line. I took his autobiography for him to sign plus a couple trading cards. He was so surprised to see the book he was showing people around him, he signed the book and the cards and even came from behind the table and told a security guard to take our picture. He was truly friendly and nice and really appreciated that people loved his character.

  • Mr. & Mrs. Burl Ives - On one of my many visits to Montreal's Expo '67, I was on the blue monorail (which pretty much covered the entire site). I was just sitting there, 'rubbernecking' when an elderly couple sitting in the car across from me, caught my attention. I then leaned forward and asked the gentleman, "Has anyone ever told you, that you look like Burl Ives?" He began to laugh at length, and said "My wife tells me that everyday!

  • Bob Hope - My mom let me skip school so we could watch Bob play golf in Cincinnati, Ohio. We knew nothing of the game. Mr Hope was walking by us going to the next hole. Being such a cool guy, he looked at my Mom and said, "How are you?" For years after, my Mom told people "Mr. Hope was worried about her health!!"

  • Don Knotts - I was playing the slots at Caesar's Palace in my lovely evening gown just before a night on the town. I didn't even see him coming but a man in a hurry ran right into me and knocked me down to the floor... hit and run. My date ran over, picked me up and said, "That was Don Knotts!" I ran after him. Don Knotts gave me a sheepish grin when he saw me coming and stopped to give me his autograph. His son was with him. They smiled an got in the limo and left.

  • James Carville - I was chilling at the Sheetz gas station in Haymarket, VA one day. I see this big, black Escalade parked a few feet away. I think it may be a doctor and I want to congratulate him for driving a car the liberals hate. I walk up to the door, the window rolls down and I see it's him, with that toothy grin. I say "You're James Carville!" He says "Hi! How you doin'?" I say "I've seen you on TV and I have wanted to wring your neck so many times, you make me so mad with what you say." He just grinned even bigger. Wife Mary Matalin was with him and their two little girls were in the back. I told Mary she was the best Republican commentary out there. They had to split right then, so I let it go. But I will never forget that toothy grin, that drawl in his voice and that bald head...
