What a great moment! OGTA was having a Premiere of “The Gentleman Next Door,” featuring RAF fighter pilot, John Wilkinson.
Afterwards, there was an autograph session; the line was long but it came to a gobsmacking stop when I realized that among the snaking queue of adults was an 11 year old sprite. When it came to her turn to buy his book, sh stuck out her hand and said, “I am really happy to meet someone like you!”
He gave her the book…autographed it, included a special note and that was that.
A week later, John called me and said it was the highlight of the event. “I had no idea young kids cared about this sort of thing.”
