A momentous occasion took place last night at the Northern Lights Theater in the Potawatomi Bingo Casino.

The green room in the theater was renamed the Mr. Warmth Room in honor of comedian Don Rickles. In typical Rickles fashion, Don commented that the jungle he served in during WWII in the Phillipines had better atmosphere.

He did seem genuinely touched by the honor but couldn't resist asking "Does the sign come down the moment I leave?"

Rickles performs another show Wednesday night at the Theater at 8 p.m.

Gino Salomone Special to

Gino Salomone has loved movies and entertainment since he was a boy on Milwaukee's Northwest Side. He squinted from the glare of the movie lights that his family shot as a child, and his proudest high school accomplishment was a 30-minute "feature" he made for John Marshall High School.

He graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with a degree in Mass Communication.

Salomone created a business called Rerun Reunions through which he booked personal appearances for actors from "Gilligan's Island," "The Brady Bunch," "MASH," and from "Saturday Night Live."

Salomone has one screen credit, the Lab Technician in "Naked Gun 2 1/2." He was cut out of two other movies. Hollywood has not called since.

He is also the movie critic for WISN-TV where his feature, "Gino Goes to the Movies" airs on the weekend newscasts. He also reviews movies for the Dave and Carole Show on 96.5 WKLH radio. His interviews have been used by E! as well as the TV Guide Channel.
