Good 50's Movie
2 June 2000 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie when I was about 10 years old in the Studio before it had even been released... since my cousin (Sandra Giles) was in it. She is a very beautiful and kind person and would take time to talk to us children like we were adults. I live in Texas so the only time I got to see her was when we went on vacation to California. I remember her taking me for a ride in her 1959 T-Bird that was covered inside and out with pink fur. I bet she caused lots of confusion on the California Freeways back then. I wish the movie was on VHS so I could keep a copy for my son. If anyone has a copy for sale please let me know. Thanks Carmen
