It was 'Rodney Dangerfield' , who first discovered'Lenore Andriel' while she was addressing an audience of 3,000 atthe Ritz Theatre, in Elizabeth, New Jersey.
Astonishingly, at the ripe age of 21, Andriel owned and ran the Ritz,where Dangerfield was performing that night. Having come up with theidea of owning a gorgeous showplace, replete with nightly starperformers, Andriel set out to own it and found the funding to do it.
