I didn’t know everybody who came to the Coffee Shop. We kept an accordion file  of photos from magazines and newspapers, hoping that the person in the photograph might show up. Sometimes I would just be handed a signed photo to be framed and added to the Wall. I was flattered that they wanted to be included. I sift through these photos now and wonder about the person in the photograph. With the internet its just a few clicks and there is the information. Joy Rinaldi seems to have found her niche as an acting couch and owner of the McCadden Place Theatre. For the thousands of actors and actresses, writers, and producers who come to Hollywood each year, one little credit and they are forever remembered on IMDB. But what about the others. I looked up a name the other day and the only information I could find was the date of his death.
