Send Him on a Pleasant Cruise

Another entry from the Andy Warhol Diaries, this one describing a dinner party.

Saturday, June 18, 1977

Mr. and Mrs. Scorsese, Martin’s parents, were there. They’re taller than he is, which is unusual, because kids are usually taller than their parents…. There was a Negro girl with a baby, too, and the guy with the beard turned out to be Bobby De Niro, and this Negro girl was his wife, Diahnne Abbott….

Roger Moore was wonderful and charming. He showed us what he called his three expressions: “worried,” “eyebrow up,” and “eyebrow down.” He’s been married three times, he’s married to an Italian woman now.

Bobby De Niro came in after dinner with an agent with funny glasses, didn’t say much. Marty’s parents were there really late.

Everybody got really really drunk. They were wanting me to make a toast, and I was so drunk I actually stood up and said something and it came out right I guess because everybody kept saying how moving it was, but I was so drunk I can’t remember what I said. Liza kept saying, “I’ll tell this to my grandchildren–and I’ve forgotten everything else!”

It was the best party. I stole a copy of the record album of New York, New York because Valentine wanted it, and Roger Moore had written backwards on it, and then I felt bad because they saw me do it.
