Dine and Dash
Not all of Moon's pranks were destructive, offensive or at someone else's expense. During the filming of Stardust, a 1974 rock flick in which Moon had a small part, the generous-to-a-fault drummer made a big show of paying for everything whenever the cast went out on the town together. Karl Howman, a young actor on the film who Moon had taken under his wing, finally insisted upon covering an evening's revel himself – only to discover to his horror at the end of the night that the final bill was going to cost him a month's wages. Moon, seeing his distress, suggested that they "do a runner"; and Howman, though utterly mortified about leaving the check unpaid, dashed with the rest of the actors to a waiting limo. The next day, Moon took Howman aside and informed him that he'd quietly paid the bill while the actor wasn't looking; the mad dash from the club was just his way of capping the evening with a bit of extra excitement.
