Worked on “The Smith Family” today. Stupid part but no sweat. Finished early. Leon came out + we ate at the commissary [crossed out letter] with a very pretty little girl he was taking around. We all left about two/thirty + I went back to the hotel Decided to nap + discovered the Thanksgiving Christmas parade was tonight. [crossed out word] Put my car in the parking lot. Dick’s plane went to Ontario + he had to rent a car + drive in in pouring rain. The Parade starting + he couldn’t get near the hotel. Was fit to be tied. He came in around 8:00 exhausted. Had a drink. Saw Benito Prezia in front of the Roosevelt – all smiles. Drove to Leon’s + collapsed there. Nice evening – home + bed _ just missed Scotty but probably just as well.
