He was often described as being a lonely man, a kind one, but odd nonetheless. His days were habitually spent hunting for the right shade of British Racing Green or Robin’s Egg Blue for his classic car collection or tracking down a limited edition miniature WWII fighter planes. Eclectic was his love for nostalgia. His studio apartment was filled to the brim with cardboard cut outs of the old greats, Lamarr, Hayworth, West and Grant, all in cohorts with other silver screen mainstays. The mantle atop his fireplace was littered with toys from another era. Monkeys on bicycles, cymbal clapping bears atop patterned pedestals and a slew of tin robots that watched his every move, his adopted family of sorts. Although he was often pegged as a loner, he was only misunderstood. Countless hours were spent unearthing the dearest memorabilia, discovering treasures to display in his shrine. It’s as if he was homesick for a time he was never a part of, longing only for the things that are now out of date, out of fashion and rusty, no matter the cost. [Margaret Johnson]
