Bob Dobbs’ Diaries: Feb. 17/1936 (Paris)

After the poetry reading, Renè [Bob's father] took Bob to Gurdjieff's home at Fontainebleau-Avon and there he was introduced to T.S. Eliot. Bob would hear Eliot say to Gurdjieff only fifteen minutes later: “You have to consider that any esoteric occult ritual is today socially acted out by the daily publishing and consuming of newspapers.” But an image distracted Bob--a beautiful blonde woman stood over a street grating with her dress billowing. A movie marquee above spelled out SOME LIKE IT HOT.
