    I'm gettin' heartburn just looking at this picture! Notice the expressions change as you go down the counter? Bet the guys at this end got their food first. :eek:

    Severals days ago i saw some 50s/60s monster movies scenes posted here so I dug out these old trading cards. Maybe a bit off topic but they sure do not make movies like these anymore.

    I am no expert, but as I understand it, Beauchamp and one of the
    Dobryea bothers had a hand in inventing this "resonating" type
    about 1927 when with National (remember Paul Simon and Willie
    Nelson singing the praises of a National guitar on "Graceland"?).
    The goal in that pre-electric era was a guitar loud enough to be
    heard when played in concert with other instruments, particularly
    brass. Dobryea soon left National and set up the Dobro (Dobryea
    Brothers) company to make competing instruments, though he still
    held interest in the National company. The better models are prized
    by acoustics artists the way a Fender Stratocaster is cherished by
    electric guitar fans and artists. "Dobro" slipped into generic use
    until Gibson acquired rights and pledged to protect it.

    Dang! Don't you love those '50s/'60s teen flicks where they threw
    the kitchen sink in there to get about 80 minutes' worth of final-cut?
    I'm talking gratuitous hotrods and fainting dames who don't even fit
    the plot, as well as a far-fetched script and p----poor production values! LOL


    "EEGAH!" was just such a movie, back in 1962.


    [​IMG]

    Both images are THANKS to Wikipedia and are presented
    here under fair-use rationale to illustrate a point. Not
    for commercial re-use nor gain.




    Born in 1939, 7', 1" Richard Kiel got his break-through film role
    in the 1962 dog, "EEGAH, the Name Written in Blood," a teen flick
    about a rejuvenated, formerly freeze-dried caveman who falls in
    love with a modern-day teenage girl. OK, ok. Suffice it to say
    that the movie is today celebrated as ONE OF THE 50 WORST
    movies ever made! But, like "Plan 9," it gets points for at least
    providing some laughs and, thus, exercise. If not ENTERTAIN-
    MENT, then, maybe that would qualify as at least "redeeming
    social value" ??? LOL

    Anyway, Kiel is one of the good guys of Hollywood, even though
    he's usually been cast as a BIG baddie in movies. Once he got
    his foot in Movieland's door with "EEGAH!" Kiel went on to well-
    remembered and numerous roles, including the unforgettable
    character Jaws in two Bond films, a ga-zillian TV roles, the role
    of football player Samson ("I think I broke his fu--ing neck!") in
    the Burt Reynolds hit, "The Longest Yard," as well as support
    roles in "Pale Rider," "Happy Gilmore" and "Inspector Gadget,"
    among the many. Kiel, incidentally, is affected by acromegaly,
    the same genetic condition that caused Abe Lincoln to be tall,
    as well as fellow actor Rhondo Hatton, World Heavyweight
    Boxing Champ Primo Carnera and many other well-known
    tall folk.

    Zone" episode, "To Serve

    Do you have any more of these truck photos? I worked for the company in the first photo Lombard Bros.from Waterbury,CT. I work there from 1979 to 83. They were bought out by North Penn Transfer of Lansdale, PA. All the great old trucking companies of the past have all but disappeared.
     
  11. So you're assuming that most of us went to the Drive-Ins to watch those GREAT movies with such great plots and top-notch actors/actresses?

    I always brought other means of entertainment with me, just in case the show wasn't all that good. . . :rolleyes: :rolleyes: But I do remember that Twilight Zone episode you mentioned - that old show was a good one.

    Noted economist Milton Friedman said the supermarket one one of the most significant developments of the 20th century.
    It freed an enormous number of hours for people to engage in other persuits.
    Maybe build a hot rod rather than bale hay?

    From Tulsa TV. The caption on this picture says..."Bob Mills on "Sun-Up" in San Diego with weather girl Raquel Tejada, later known as Raquel Welch." Who would have thought it?

    On another note, I just read on MSN that Johnny Preston died. His best known song was "Running Bear."
