And three Oscar winners!

And Pam Grier, Valerie Perrine, a former porn star, a lesbian movie star, Michael Pare, and Martine Beswick.

They were all in the same room at the Chiller Theatre autograph show at the Parsippany, New Jersey, Hilton.

And they're all in this week's column.

Yes, I went to the Kevin Clement-produced assemblage of luminaries the other night and came back with a big bag full of proverbial goodies from the annals of showbiz's iconography and all of its footnotes.

Happy to share the magic with y'all.

To paraphrase what Reverend Mother Dolores Hart (above) told me:

"It's my calling!"

My friends and I visit celebrity graves as a hobby.  In September we were allowed to visit the grave of Patricia Neal, who is buried at Mother Dolores Hart's abbey in Connecticut.  Mother Dolores was supposed to take us to the grave but she was sick that day.  We couldn't believe it when it was announced she'd be appearing at Chiller.  We got to meet her after all.  I'm not a believer, but it was almost like ... a miracle.

I stuck my foot in my mouth with Valerie Perrine.  We were talking about how great director Bob Fosse was, and she said, "Also George Roy Hill."  I was starstruck as usual so I wasn't thinking straight.  "George Roy Hill?"  "Oh yes,  "Slaughterhouse-Five" ".  "Oh right!  I forgot you were in that!"  She laughed it off, classy lady that she is.

What Dolores Hart said was so sad. God made her become a nun and she was devastated?? I have no problem telling God "no."

Very zippy column. These people (with exceptions) sound nicer than today's stars.
