You may recall that I have been mistaken for Chuck Norris – more than once.
And more recently, for Ali Baba, although in a region where he is probably better known than elsewhere.
However, I was taken aback when the cashier at Santini's Deli in McLean told me I looked like Donald Sutherland! Donald Sutherland – I couldn't believe it! And how would such a young woman even know who he was?
Later I realized that my recollections were from many years ago, when we were avid moviegoers.
For example, in the movie version of M.A.S.H., (1970)
and in Klute (1971)
but I hadn't seen any of his recent films.
So when the Capital Grille manager told me the same thing, although that he was older, I asked him where he had seen him. He said "The Italian Job."
When I tracked down a photo I had to admit, another dead ringer!
Although, as he said, older.
