I'm sitting here watching Dr Strangelove on TCM and it brought me back to a fond memory of meeting Slim Pickens on a flight from Tampa to Springfield MO back in the 80s. The guy was absolutely as funny in person as he was on screen. We sat behind him and Mrs51 asked him if he had fun shooting Blazing Saddles. He laughed so hard and said working with Mel Brooks was the most fun he had in his entire life. Just wondered if anybody else might have an interesting story about meeting a celebrity.
