I was a friend of Joni Mitchell and stayed at her house in Bel Air when she went on the road with her band L.A. Express. Alfred's house was on the way to her house. I saw him a couple of times coming into his driveway in a limo that was dark green in color. He was coming from Universal Studios where I worked on Kojak, Alias Smith and Jones and Emergency. It was really exciting to see him in person. I loved his movies as a child and was raised in Los Gatos, Calif. below Scott's Valley. He lives in my heart still.
