David Codikow invited us to dinner. Robbie Robertson and Al Pacino hadn’t seen each other in a long time and so this was a special event to be at. One of the things they share, besides talent, is working with Martin Scorsese. Robbie has done music on many of Martin’s movies and, of course, Al has been in a number of his films. I have seen Al many times over the years but never have seen him so happy.

Another special part of the dinner for me was seeing Diane Warren again. I first met her at the unveiling of Whitney Houston’s new album which Diane wrote a song for. Diane is perhaps one of the most successful song writers in the business. Richard produced her song, “Rhythm of the Night,” with her many moons ago.

Don't know the name of the man on the far left, but the raven haired beauty is Karen, next to our host, David Codikow. Standing is Andrea Neuman and then far right his wife, Khadija

Not in the photos because she left early is PR maven and true original, Kelly Cutrone. Kelly has also been a poet and musician and I have heard her songs many times cause Richard helped her out early on and has included her stuff in some of his compilations. (He does his compilations to suit different moods and settings. His Santa Fe comp is my favorite) I gave my mug shot clutch to Diane Warren and Kelly flipped for it and said she wanted to promote it…which would be great for my Non-Profit.

P.S. The mug shot swag make good Xmas gifts—just a thought and you’d be doing good!!

See you next time.

  1. Happy Birthday Jane. I hope you are doing something special and fun today.


  2. Dear Jane,

    Just wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday. Was watching Barefoot in the Park on TCM. What a great film and your performance was so much fun. Everyone in the film was great and Neil Simon’s writing is still hysterical. Thank you for bringing a smile to my face on this cold and windy day in New York. I still cannot believe we received two feet of snow.



    PS so glad to hear you are making a new film. I cant wait to see a new Jane Fonda film.

  3. Happy Birthday!!!
    Beloved Jane,

    As the years pass you by, I see your legacy so clearly. When I grow up, I want to be just like you.

    You are truly a remarkable being.

    Que Dios te Bendiga!

    love, love, always love.
    Diana Isabel Pando

  8. Love these photos & Al Pacino too!…yes, he does look so happy!

  9. I love Robbie and Di’s music. She writes some of the best ballads ever written. Big fan of The Band. The Last Waltz dvd is one that I have played over and over again….Martin directed that, I am sure. I had the video and it wore out, so I bought the dvd!

  10. Love Brigit and Danny’s creative Christmas party with the Cuban beat. Cate Blanchett also one of my favorites, always superb, gifted and truly loves her work. We have snow in New York City!
    Happy solstice birthday and of course, many, many, many more. Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy, exciting but peaceful 2010 to all. 🙂

    Jane on a poor ranch which hated oil men want.
    What a super-wonderful actress !!
    I just HAD to comment.

    Health and Happiness
    from me and mine to you and yours,

    Night Knight

    • Thanks. That was “Comes a Horseman” with James Caan.

  15. Excuse me, but you say that Al Pacino has been in many Martin Scorsese movies?? This is incorrect. As a longtime fan, I’ve never seen a Scorsese movie that Pacino has been in. Perhaps you are thinking of Robert DeNiro, who has been in many Scorsese movies and works with him all the time. As far as I know, Scorsese & Pacino have never worked together on a project. I’ve often asked, why not?, as they’d probably be wonderful working together, but as of this date, they have not. You may know Al Pacino, but you certainly aren’t familiar with his filmography! Best wishes.

    • You’re correct, Joanie. I just found out my error. They were talking so much about Scorsese and Alis so That director’s type I made a mistake. Thanks for pointing it out.

      • You’re a classy lady, Jane, and also one of the greatest actresses of your generation! I love your Blog. Have followed all your work, and remember how knocked-out I was seeing your performance in “Klute”. Use your influence and get Pacino & Scorsese together for a project,one that includes you, too!
        All best to you.
