Special Movies

The big theaters downtown not only showed movies: they also had real stages where live actors and actresses could give a performance. Myrtle told me that for her birthday one year, her mother gave her special tickets to see a famous actress named Debbie Reynolds sing and dance, as shown in the picture. She went to this show with our cousin Marcia.

Another time, a TV show named Dragnet once was made into a movie, and I went downtown to see the movie and then to see the star of the movie, named Jack Webb, in person. He talked to the people in the theater after we saw the movie. In the TV show, whenever a very important thing happened,there was special music that went DUH DA DUH' DUH. Also, Sargeant Friday, the main police character always said to women: "Just the facts, ma'am."
