Today in Madonna History: September 12, 1984

On September 12 1984, Madonna attended Dallas Boesendahl’s party for the Orion Pictures movie release of Amadeus at the Limelight club in New York.

In 2003, photographer Patrick McMullan released a coffee table book called: So80’s: A Photographic Diary of a Decade. In the book he said this of Madonna:

I was at this Dallas Boesendahl party for Amadeus at Limelight, and a publicist named Reid Rosefelt said to me, “You should come meet this girl Madonna.” I said, “Sure, I’m very happy to meet her,” but I didn’t know who she was. So I met her and took a few pictures of her. She couldn’t have been sweeter. It was just a very simple, unguarded moment.
