When we met Vince in GETTING OFF, he said that his only Hollywood ambition was to drink at ALL THE BARS ON SUNSET. Oh, you poor innocent man.
Single again, Vince is starting to feel he’s aged out of the bar scene, and his favorite dance partner has other fish to fry. Then he stumbles onto a show by the Underground Cabaret, and things start to get interesting again. He agrees to work with one of the Cabaret principals on a number, because there’s really no down-side to dancing.
And then his best friend’s girl tells him to come out to Santa Monica because she’s got someone he needs to meet. And boy, did he ever need to meet this woman.
Kelli was mostly amused by her new friend’s offer to call the guy. Then he actually showed up … and then he turned out to be a great dancer … and then there was that dinner at Morton’s and they both knew this thing was going places.
It was still a bit of a surprise when one of those places was on a stage …!
