“Butterfield 8” revisited

um hi

um hi


The movie “Butterfield 8” was made and set in the sixties, with call girl Liz Taylor driving a T-Bird –just like mom! (Did someone from the movie studio spot my mom driving around the San Fernando Valley back then?)

Calling Butterfield 8

Oh! the novel upon which the movie was based took place during the great depression!

I have always been facinated by the 1930s. Things were so real then.
Go into the CCC until the war, then either into the Armed Forces or if physically unable, to work in a defense plant or ship yard.

Also, several movies in the seventies were based on events from the thirties:

“Paper Moon,” “Bonnie and Clyde,” “Day of the Locusts,” “Hard Times,” “Boxcar Bertha,” and my favorite “They Shoot Horses Don’t They?” Plus many more.
