Hollywood Date Night
It’s Saturday night—anywhere, with a date set for fun at one of the regular hangouts. Whether you live in a country town, a village or a big city, you head for the neighborhood movie and a super soda afterwards. Or the bowling alley or skating at the local rink. Or maybe you try out some new steps at the place with the hottest band.
Or, if a fellow’s in the chips, it could be a big date at one of the glamour spots.
In Hollywood, the hangouts may have fancier names and the settings may be a little more slick—but they offer the same kind of fun. And romance, of course, is the same everywhere.
Fox Hills Stables, where cowboy actors board their horses, features old-fashioned hay rides, moonlight canters. Lee McGregor, Joan Dixon preferred latter—more romantic
There’s nothing like an ice cream binge at Wil Wright’s, where young players like Barbara Lawrence, Johnny Sands forget calorie counts. As Angel-face says—it’s heavenly!
