Olé LA

I flew to LA yesterday, the occasion being a film tonight about my college roommate, Richard Zanuck, who died unexpectedly a few months ago. It’s a documentary on him, titled “Don’t Say No Until I Finish Talking.” It was completed just before he passed away.

  I’m staying in the Erwin Hotel in , Venice Beach, a Joie de Vivre hotel, a block from the beach and it’s  warm, blue-sky LA beach weather. Totally.

   I spent yesterday roaming the boardwalk with 2 cameras. It’s LA at its max. Performers, freaks, skaters, artists, babes, hunks, especially on a Sunday, it’s a dizzying array of let-it-all-hang-out SoCal. Click here for photo album from yesterday.
