I won an award... It's on the wall in my office

The wonderful British character actor Victor Spinetti passed away on Monday at the age of 82. You'll see several stories about Victor on Beatles News today. This is my personal remembrance of him.

Over the years, because of a mutual friend, I got the chance to spend many hours one on one with Victor.

One time, I was helping coordinate logistics at a screening of A Hard Day's Night that Victor had flown in to Los Angeles to attend in July, 2007. During the screening we spent most of the time in a small restaurant across the street, but for a while we went back to the theater, and I got to sit next to him as we sat in the back row to watch part of the film. This is my best memory of him, sitting in that theater, watching Victor watch the film, smiling and enjoying it with the rest of the audience.

There's no wonder why the Beatles liked him and put him in every one of their movies. He was the warmest, kindest, most wonderful soul I ever met on this planet. The time I got to spend with him was a wonderful gift which I will never forget. I will miss Victor Spinetti greatly.
