Two Kinds of Fame

Isn't your father the famous violinist?"

Everybody knew Efrem Zimbalist Jr. from his role in the 1970s TV series _The F.B.I.,_ but not everyone knew that his father was a famous violinist.

I was eating a pizza in Encino, California, and saw the actor sitting by himself. I went up to him and asked, "Isn't your father the famous violinist?" It did catch him off-guard, to say the least.
