Return to Me, Dean Martin, 05-23-09

I received a message from someone on myspace.com, an Italian. (I always ask their nationality before I give an email response back.

But, I sent him this clip from the movie and song, “Return to Me.”  If you watch it you will see it is from Chicago, and I was a background actress in it.

The movie ‘may have been my idea; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eyKlwvS5ZGk

If I told you this story before, just delete, but the most important thing was that “Archie Bunker” the bigot from “All in the Family,” (which was to change the history of the White race forever) but Archie, or Carroll O’Connor the Irishman, actually came up to me to talk to me…. (Something very unusual in the movie industry for most stars stay isolated. Or they don’t talk to the extra help.)

But, a quick reminder. I was in the movie “Kissing a Fool.”  While getting my hair done, the star, Bonnie Hunt was sitting next to me.Since I don’t watch TV or movies, I didn’t know who the stars were. The hairdresses liked ‘my hairdo’ that I fixed better than Bonnie’s so they changed my hairdo into a horrible severe one, (so I wouldn’t be noticed,) and gave the star, Bonnie Hunt my hairdo.)  She came up to me on the movie set and was talking to me.  I therefore went home and baked her some Polish Kolacky, pastry with apricot and almond filling, and took her some.But the hairdresser ‘would not’ let me talk to the star the next day nor take my cookies, so I gave them out to everyone there.

But, before I left the hair and make-up trailer, I heard Bonnie screaming and in a tyrade, (she’d make a great White Patriot.)  She had brought a Dean Martin tape of his famous songs, and when the hairdressers played it they put it on really quiet, while they had the Hip Hop, Rip Rap on really loud.  And That made Bonnie see Red.  Well, I listened and my mind went to work. The next day when I came in I was waiting in the director’s chair, and I could hear the song of this movie above, “Return to Me,” and I started to belt it out really loud. Naturally, she heard, and she invited me to talk with her, and I think it made her feel really good that one person on the set was a big fan of Dean Martin also.

But this “Return to Me,” episode doesn’t stop there.  I was working for George Jewell catering, #1 caterer to the stars in Hollywood and the Director of Human Resources for Human Development. George, although gay, was sick of gays working for him and their performances, and wanted ‘straight White people,’ And worse of all, he couldn’t stand all the blacks and Mexicans the temp agencies were sending him, and legally he had to give good work for these tuxedoed waiters at the galas and balls and good $$$.  So he asked me straight out to go and hire ‘White” people.  I told you that I went to the schools, including the very Aryan school, North Park University, with many Swedes, Norwegians, etc.  And I would actually go up to the White students, cause they were ‘ not’ applying, and hand them applications, and totally ignored the blacks and browns that were filling out applications.

Well, I also went on the movie set.  I was doing ‘hiring’ as well as being a background actress.  It was located at the Marigold Bowling alley hear the St. Valentines Day massacre in Chicago.  I hired a lot of Whites for the company, and hired a total of 267 White people that he added to his staff in one year! And basically all that did was to give the company the ‘proper’ ratio of Whites to blacks and browns, for Chicago was still a white city.  (not anymore.)

Well, while I was at this bowling alley, I was standing by a bowling machine, and there was a sign saying “All balls conditioned for $.25.  I was a little bored from standing around for 14 hours, so I told one of the crew with the headphones, “Hey mister, you got $.25, I’ll give you a good conditioning for your balls. That’s all it will cost ya!”  He laughed so hard, and then it buzzed all around the movie set. Before you know it Jim Belushi from Saturday Night Live came up to me to tell him the joke, and then, lo and behold, the bigot, the racist, and proud to say, my acquaintance in real life, Archie Bunker, Carroll O’Connor came up to me to tell him the joke.  We exchanged nicities, and never did I realize that perhaps 12 years later, I’d be writing espousing White patriotism, and wanting to bring back Archie Bunker from the dead for his love of White values.  (he certainly was outnumbered, but then they ususally do that to us.)

So here is the clip from the movie I was in Chicago, “Return to Me.”  I also think of it, because my Auntie Anna Kotfas lost her husband Benny, and after his death, he was only 42, and she would just sit on the edge of the bed and weep and weep and weep and play this song constantly. It was White Polish Love from the past.
