An early adventure on Los Angeles's Angels Flight funicular
30 August 2008 | by (Hollywood, CA) – See all my reviews

Bobby Vernon and Helen Darling are newlywed rubes honeymooning in downtown Los Angeles. While Bobby gets involved with a couple of city slickers hoping to relieve him of his money, Helen discovers Angels Flight, a famous funicular that ran up and down the side of Bunker Hill on Third Street (google Angels Flight to look it up, or simply visit Angels Flight Goes to the Movies at www.electricearl.com/af). For a country girl, the little trolleys are like a giddy carnival ride. She takes a break from the fun by running back to the hotel and leaving her husband a note telling him she's "gone up Angels Flight." When Bobby returns to the hotel, he's heartbroken because he's lost all their money. Seeing his wife's message about Angels Flight, he mistakes it, in his own miserable state, for a suicide note. He rushes out and tries to kill himself, unsuccessfully, until a couple of good Samaritans inform him that Angels Flight is a twin-trolley system, not a stairway to heaven. Elated, he rushes to Third Street, catches one of the trolleys going up, and leaps to the other trolley midway up the hill to join his wife. Overall it's an entertaining experience.
