Two New York thespians in town and starring opposite each other in an autumn release were spotted at Bristol Farms in West Hollywood by an ardent fan.

Responding to the chirp of a telephone text the wife located the phone in the sheets of his bed and was astonished to see a nude portrait of the other New York thespian preening in front of a mirror in a vaguely familiar marble lined bath – as it turned out in the adjoining suite.
The concierge returned the shattered iPhone (it looked like it had been stomped with a stiletto heel) to the actor in question and the wife initiated divorce proceedings within the hour.
Also running in the background of Double Indemnity was writer Raymond Chandler, who’s cameo appearance was only noticed recently. I’m not sure if he was ever spotted at Bristol Farms.

As soon as I saw the headline, the Blondie cover version of the song by the same name popped into my head. That’s a good thing! Thanks.
The Blondie version was a cover? I never knew!
Yeah, it was composed by Jack Lee of The Nerves, who recorded it first.
Listening to an interview of his now, thank you.
You are most welcome!
