I was nominated for an Oscar.
Wow that was
thrilling. My wife and I arrived at the red carpet. Our driver opened
the Cadillac doors. The photographers took
already pictures of us (with
the old flashlights; you had to change them after each picture). All
these flashes. It was already dark.
I waved to the crowd, which was
applauding. It was so exciting. And it took place in the Warner Brother
Studios over 20 years ago.
They chose me and a nice lady as my
wife. I supposed to be either Stanley Kubrick or Karl Malden, even
though I don’t have such
a nose as Karl Malden. It was the movie
“Dorothy Dandridge”. Halle Berry played Dorothy Dandridge, who was the
American actress nominated for an Oscar in the nineteen
fifties. And they took more takes. So I could enjoy again and again the
awesome atmosphere. I’ll never forget that.
Actually they didn’t use this scene in the movie, but that doesn’t matter. The experience itself was just worth it.
one day before this great shot for me I had the honor to hold Halle
Berry on her feet when she just lied in Bikini in front of me.
didn’t use this scene either.
