""My father," Rondeli continued, "had a friend, a prominent actor, Spartak Bargashvili, whom Stalin invited once to the Kremlin. Spartak sat with Stalin late into the night, drinking vodka and speaking in Georgian. Spartak wanted to leave, but Stalin wouldn't let him. Finally Spartak left. At the door, Stalin said, 'Come live with me here. I have no one to talk to.' Stalin, Spartak had told me, was looking at him with the eyes of a child."
