But of course. He always, always helped. I was going to say he had time to help young people. But of course he was much younger than I was, so he even had time to help old people. Then we got friendly. In fact, mutual friends were making a film in which I was acting and Sydney had—he’d written the script from a story into film dialogue. _____wasn’t enough. He liked art and other things. So I said I would help make the film. In fact, they had a babysitter for me. They must find someone to baby-sit. I had a five-year old son. They found Sydney Brenner as a good babysitter who taught my son to play chess in the evenings while I was making the film. Then of course we got much more friendly, started going out on Sunday picnics with my little boy.
