Art in Baltimore
I dont have any photos of me with Robert Redford -- but ..... A few years ago I went to a Buddy Deane reunion dance where John Waters was a guest. This picture of me, John, and Evanne Robinson was taken that night. He and Evanne had known each other since high school days when she was a very popular member of the 'committe'. For those of you who may not know, The Buddy Deane Show was the local equivalent of 'American Bandstand' and teenagers all over Baltimore rushed home to catch the show and keep up with their favorite dances and their favorite dancers. Evanne was definitely one of the favorites. John Waters once said in an interview that she was his inspiration for one of the main characters in Hairspray. John Waters never appeared on the show, but he did feature Buddy Deane in a cameo in the Hairspray film.
