We’ll let George Hamilton take a curtain call after yesterdays post. It is Spring Break for the college kids, after all, and yesterday on Twitter I shared the above image of what things were like — at least in the mythologized Hollywood version — before twerking contests and chugging beer from a callipygian vessel.
The image comes from the 1960 film “Where The Boys Are,” which is set over Spring Break in Ft. Lauderdale. We’ve posted about it before. Hamilton plays a rich guy whose parents may or may not have bribed his way into Brown. The most hilarious plotline involves the gang of protagonists spending one evening during their week of revelry politely listening to avant-garde jazz. This being a comedy, however, their evening ends up at the police station:
A couple more shots of Hamilton at the time of the film:
And here’s the trailer. By the way, there are hints of spring weather this weekend where I am, and hope there’s sun where you are, too. Try and do something outside; it tends to have beneficial effects. — CC
