In 1984, I went down to the legendary MGM Studios to see an advanced screening of a movie called "Garbo Talks."

15 minutes after the film started, I noticed a tall man and a short portly man coming in late down my row to 2 seats that were available near me. They were just shadows and they were not adjusted yet to the change in lighting perception. The tall man stepped on my foot unintentionally while trying to get through and said "excuse me," I looked up and said "no problem." When I looked up I realized that the tall man was Burt Reynolds and the short man was his best friend Dom DeLuise. I found the situation to be quite a funny surprise. Upon leaving the theater, I went up and talked to him, realizing that we might not meet again. He was very friendly.
