Menace II Society?

Shortly after the filming of From Hell (starring Johnny Depp), Albert Hughes (who directed the film with his brother Allen), was approached by "a major woman producer" outside The Ivy, a restaurant in Hollywood.

The producer handed Albert a piece of paper. Was she interested in working with him in the future? Yes, in a manner of speaking: she had handed him... her valet slip!

["This has happened a couple of times," Allen later explained, "but it's like, just because we're dark-complexioned..." As black-Armenian biracial kids, the Hughes once recalled, "we weren't accepted by white people when we were growing up, and we weren't accepted by a lot of black people either.. We've been outsiders our whole lives."]
