Dear Shaded Viewers,
This really made me smile. My friend Taki just sent me these two images from Ninth Gate, the first time I met Roman Polanski. I was a mere shadow in this film. Just arrived in a car and had my ‘husband’ quite an unfortunate choice I might add, and a valet and me. Still cannot believe he even noticed me in this. I just walked from the car to the villa. We tried so many cars as each time there was another problem with the lights, the door, always something. I was thrilled to meet one of my cinema heros, since then we’ve met, in passing, at les deux abeilles, my neighborhood canteen.
