Carol's family income bracket
« on: April 24, 2012, 11:02:19 PM »
This short was made somewhere in Los Angeles.  More like, somewhere in Bel Air or Brentwood, egads.  Did you notice the size of that back yard? Carol looks like she's a fairly spoiled little girl.  Giant backyard, her own duck hutch, pond in the middle of the lawn, great big canopied yard swing.  Jeepers.  The affluent days of the 1970s - how I miss them.

Or maybe I just miss being a spoiled little girl myself.  I grew up in LA too (in a suburb that used to be considered part of it but is now called Santa Clarita) and we had a fairly large yard (half the size of Carol's tho') and a small fish pond and garden swing too.

But ducks would have bored me.  Instead, I had a wall-to-wall 8-compartment reptile enclosure full of things that slither in my bedroom. I would take the garter snakes out to the fish pool and let them feed on the zillions of little goldfish and tadpoles in it.


OK, nostalgia break over.

Why does everything filmed in the late sixties/early seventies make people look jaundiced?

The sun was yellower then? Ozone layer depletion? Don't know, I missed all but the last 4 months of the 70's
