As for memories, the first one that came to mind, was a 1950’s Van Nuys Democratic Club production of “My Fair Candidate” (a take-off on My Fair Lady) starring Annette Baran, a self-assured politico who brags she can transform any bum into a winning candidate.. Her companion challenges: “Even that filthy drunk there in the gutter?”  The filfthy drunk, Annette’s co-star, was Fred Rochlin.  Instead of singing, Annette, effectively spoke her lines. Fred attempted song. With those two totally natural actors starring, it was a smash. Doris Silverton and I wrote the script.
Submitted by Harriet Rochlin who adds: “Annette and I knew each for sixty-one years; our husbands architectural partners for thirty-three of them. With our mates, at our women’s winter solstice birthday celebration, and alone we spent innumerable illuminating and enjoyable hours together.
Thanks for the opportunity to recall one of our most enjoyable experiences together.
