Trivia

Horace Cook Jr.'s loose-leaf folder contains four Jai Alai-related items, all authentic. These include a January 1st, 1954 program from the Miami Jai Alai Fronton at N.W. 36th St. and 37th Avenue in Miami, originally sold for 15 cents, and a 1942 photo of the Jai Alai Fronton in Manila, Philippines, shot by the famous photographer and photojournalist Carl Mydans for Life Magazine. There are also two photos of Patxi, also known as Francisco Churruca, a Basque Jai Alai player who retired in 1983.

Designed by American architect Welton Becket, the Manila facility opened in 1940 and was demolished in 2000. Miami Jai Alai, built in 1926 and the world's largest Jai Alai Fronton, was still in operation as of 2014. See more »

Goofs

However, the helmet is the old style Prussian helmet (Pickelhaube) with the spike on top. These helmets were quickly found to be ineffective and by the time the US entered the war, these helmets had been replaced with steel helmets, so it's not something the German soldier would have been wearing.

Peggy Olson: Oh!
Karen Ericson: I just don't get along with women like I do men, but she left to get married, so I must be some kind of good-luck charm. Do you have a steady?
Peggy Olson: No, I- I'm still ...
