Hey, remember when I read three novels in a row with Pernod in them? Wow! I don't think any of us will ever forget that important time in our nation's history. Well, now Theresa and I have watched three movies in a row with Chicago in them. I know what you're thinking: Uncanny! Significant! Yes. First came PARTY GIRL, starring Cyd Charisse (not to be confused with the Parker Posey film of the same name). It's set mostly in Chicago. After that, in HOLLYWOOD OR BUST, starring Dean & Jerry, with a special appearance by Anita Ekberg, the boys drive through Chicago and crack a few jokes about it. In TORRID ZONE, Cagney's plan is to quit the banana plantation and get a nice quiet job in Chicago. Okay, mull that over for awhile. Mull it, I said!
