I just watched Salvador Dali on "WHAT'S MY LINE" on YOUTUBE.
If you have never watched the 50's program, the idea is for a panel of celebrities to guess what your profession is...
No clues are given.
If you are FAMOUS, the panel wears BLINDFOLDS....If you have a famous voice, you must disguise it...
They use a process of elimination...
DALI could not be eliminated.
"ARE you a WRITER?"
"ARE you a LEADING MAN?"
"Are you a MUSICIAN?"
...and on and on.....
When DALI came to New York for the first time, in the early sixties, he was asked where, of all the famous spots that he'd heard of, would he like to go first?
He immediately stated that he wanted to go to the CENTER of all the great ART in America.
He grabbed his hat and walking stick and headed out into the streets with his small group of followers.
Are a long, BRISK walk, he lead them into the offices of MARVEL COMICS....
There is NO ONE on Earth like this MAN anymore....
