FIFTY ON FRIDAYS – December 4, 1979 – NY DAILY NEWS

Today’s edition of Fifty on Fridays we go back to New York City on December 4, 1970, which was a rather warm (for December in NY) 50 F, so I would bet the Christmas shopping was in full swing, and the tired and frustrated husbands might be sneaking away from an hours long marathon spree…

One evening last week I was doing research on a potentially lost film from 1971, and while I was searching for ads in the New York Daily news I came across one for the 42nd Street Playhouse Burlesk (a New Era/Seymor Domoor joint) that caught my eye (as those types of ads a prone to…
