I was just watching the 100 AFI best films and a story popped into my head I have always hoped was true . Kirk Douglas appeared in a Spartacus excerpt and it was then that it came back to me …..
Joel Douglas, or at any rate one of the unsuccessful sprigs of this Hollywood dynasty , found his napkin was the wrong colour or something in a London Restaurant .He made the sort of embarrassing complaint Z list celebrities often do and ended up with the iconic arsehole tag line , “ Do you know who I am ….I `m Joel Douglas! “
Hearing this nearby diner upon who Joel had inflicted the pitiful display stood up and said
“No I`m Joel Douglas “
In the back of the restaurant to other chaps followed suit chorusing “ I `m Joel Douglas “ until the entire place was on its feet claiming to be Joel Douglas and congratulating itself for being so jolly funny
As I say I hope its true
