Something for Everybody

Every phase of the biz was represented at the memorial service for Freddie Fields. He had been a part of them all. Tearful emotions ran high when Ryan O’Neal delivered his farewell. There wasn’t the proverbial dry eye in the house when granddaughter  Natalie Lander sang Charlie Chaplin’s memorable “Smile,” as did a letter from Iraq by grandnephew  Zachary Zimmerman. Sidney Poitier praised  Freddies’  kindnesses.  But it remained to Paul Maslansky and Mel Brooks to relate the fun in Freddies’ life and times — and there were many. Maslansky told of working with Peter Sellers. And Mel Brooks praised Freddie for setting his career off by ordering him:  “Be outrageous!” He was. Brooks wondered “If Freddie Fields couldn’t out-negotiate  death — how can we?” Everyone later spun their own tales as his beautiful wife Corinna welcomed them back to the Fields’ home where he had been a gracious host for many years.
