So, likes below is a couple of Q&A's between Miss Volpe and Chad 'bout his Dino-experience. To view the entire interview, simply clicks on the tag of this here Dino-report. Hats off to the pallies at "The Suffolk Times" and particularly Miss Gianna Volpe for this totally groovy Dino-remembrance. Keeps lovin' our Dino pallies! Dino-awed, DMP
Q: Sounds like they took you to the cleaners. A: They took everyone to the cleaners. It wasn’t just them. That’s just the way it was because we were kids and didn’t have the faintest idea what we were doing, so that was hopeless. Jeremy’s connected — his father was a movie producer and partner at Douglas Fairbanks studio and his mother, the Lady Ms. Clyde, was pals with the Rat Pack. She was amazing. I came out of nowhere and we ended up as house guests at Dean Martin’s house.
Q: What was that like? A: It was amazing. They had a huge house with two laundresses, a housekeeper and a cook in Beverly Hills. The kids were great, too. They had this huge garden and a tennis court and a swimming pool. I’d never seen anything like it. I’d never seen houses with bug screens on the window. I was in my room with its own bathroom, which is unheard of in England, and I was looking out through the bug screens thinking “Gosh, what are they keeping out?” It was crazy. Uncle Frank [Sinatra] would come over and I remember sitting on a couch talking to him.
