Rudee Behavior?

Mark, a KUOW listener, writes…


“I vividly remember it reported in the Seattle Times that Rudy Vallee wanted to have his street renamed in his name, but was turned down by his neighbors and the city council. Thank God! He really was a jerk. He visited Seattle once and dined at Ivar’s Acres of Clams restaurant and a guest at another table choked… Rudy got up and administered the Heimlich maneuver thereby saving his life, except it was nothing more than a publicity stunt. I remember all this very well even at 75. Your contestant was mistaken.”

Mark is correct that what was renamed was a driveway (essentially a private road), not a city street. But we didn’t say it was a city street. Arnie said, “You know what the name of his street was in Beverly Hills, right? I mean, this is true. He made it — changed it to Rue de Vallee. True.”
