the swingin' 60s
Watched the decidedly odd Come Blow Your Horn, featuring Frank Sinatra.
Just the title alone sets off titters in our advanced, perverse age.
Someone has blogged with screencaps way better than I could, so check it out.
Exquisitely Bored in Nacogdoches - Come Blow Your Horn
Part 1 of 3
Part 2 of 3
Part 3 of 3
My main thoughts:
* The montage slash rather metro song number where the 21-year-old gets his "square" (yes, Frank said "square") threads updated is awesome. Apparently: casual shirt and pants that are way better put together than any 21-year-old in the 21st century = square, but brown suit + rather extravagant overcoat + hat = swingin' baby
* He has a phone IN HIS CAR? In 1963? What is he, President of the United States?
