Robert Stack - Growing up in Southern California, I have encountered a fair number of celebrities in my life. The first encounter, however, sticks in my mind like it happened yesterday, even though it was over 40 years ago. I was 10 years old, and my family had moved to Southern California just a few months before. We were visiting Palm Springs for a weekend, and on Sunday stopped for breakfast in a Denny's. During breakfast, my parents were whispering back and forth and sneakily pointing to someone behind me. When I asked who it was, they said Robert Stack of the "Untouchables". He was there with his family, also having breakfast. I wasn't sure who that was, and I was dying to look. When I heard the people behind me start getting ready to leave, I turned around to look and came face to face with Mr. Stack. Without smiling, he looked at me and asked "How you doing?" A bit shy, I responded "Fine". He said "Good" and walked away. Brief, but it was the first one for me.
