Story 326
Dom DeLuise - In 1975 I graduated from high school. My grandmother was a fashion buyer for a chain of stores in West Texas. Twice a year (in New York City and Dallas) the fashion industry has a "market" where the next season's fashions are shown. As my graduation present, my grandmother got permission from her company to take me to New York City as her "Assistant/Junior Fashion Buyer". Miliken Fabrics, as part of their sponsorship during market, used to host a breakfast that not only included a fashion show, but also some entertainment. That year, they incorporated a skit into their fashion show, and that year's guest was Dom Deluise. This was a year after he appeared in the movie "Blazing Saddles" as well as a cancelled TV series called "Lots of Luck". Totally unrehearsed and unplanned, Mr. DeLuise was "chased" off stage (by "gangsters" in the skit) and ran through the audience. Much to my delight, not only did he "hide" behind my chair, but he also slid my chair out and sat in my lap!! Before he got up, he kissed my cheek and thanked me. That was a graduation present to remember.
