Robert Calhoun, Farley Granger and Carrie Rickey , Inquirer Movie Critic during the Q&A part of the program. Carrie later told me that she, Farley and Susan Sontag all went to North Hollywood High, but of course graduated in different years.
Gail Kamenish greets Farley warmly, telling him how much she loved all his films, and what a great honor it was to meet him. It really was a special moment. Especially since people in our field (photographers) meet celebrities all the time. Its nice when you meet someone that you really admire and have been touched by through their art.
