Message: I stumbled across this (CarsWeDrove.htm
) cool site about the cars of the '50s and '60s. Except for the lack of HHS in it, I'd swear it was a Cougartown Production. It's relative to what Cougartown started out to be. The "Early Sixties". Although I was just a little kid in this era, I remember watching with awe from the back seat of my Dad's '55 Buick Special, all the rods and cruisers going round and round through the parking lot. Enjoy!

Message: So sorry to read that Tom Fragale has passed. Tom, Leroy Frye and I grew up on the same block and were "certified" Alter Boys from St. Joe's. The memories of Tom and the whole block of friends on 134 St. growing up will last a lifetime. I know Tom lived a full life, condolences to The Fragale family and Tom's friends.

Message: Excuse me JB, I know this is probably not the place to address this issue, but if you wouldn't mind....I have received many calls from fellow Cougars regarding the well being of my twin daughters. Many of you know they attend the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. They are both fine and in fact, left this morning for the Grand Cayman Islands having finished the summer classes yesterday. By the grace of God, Brandi had been on that freeway bridge one hour before the collapse, as she decided to go home early (whew!!!). Mandy was at work 10 minutes away....Thank you all for your calls and for those of you who haven't yet, I wanted to allay your fears here...Thanks again.

City & State: La Palma, Ca
Message: Speaking of the old movie theaters, when I was working in Fullerton, a group of people got together and took up a petition and had it signed by people to restore the old Fox theater in 2004. They got enough signatures and proceeded to remodel it and have old movies featured every week or so. That can be done in Inglewood, but it would take some effort. Just my 2 cents!

Message: JB, I?m so glad you finally obtained a copy of my sister, Debbie Miles? good picture. That would be the one with the mustache. It looks so much more like her than her graduation picture you have been using.
Name: Debbie ~~~~~~~~~~ Wed-Aug 1, 2007, 2:05 pm - HHS Time
City & State: Del Aire, CA
Message: I can remember one of the Westchester theatres that had a cry room. My strongest memory of the Imperial was when they were no longer a first run theatre and my mom would take us to the oldie horror movies for fifty cents! Never did get to see "House of Wax". We used to watch Seymour and Elvira on KHJ (now KCAL), too.
Name: Keith D Jones ~~~~~~~~~~ Wed-Aug 1, 2007, 11:21 am - HHS Time

Message: I remember the crying room with my girlfriend. I have to admit that is one of the best ideas in a theater I ever heard of. No crying going on, but still a great room.

Message: Tim ,Bob and Mike Bryant aren't Carls sons they are his brother Wayne Bryant's class of 64 I think. Wayne is the coach of the Sacramento Capitals and was just pictured on the front page of the Sacramento Bee sports page along with a very nice story about him, it also talked about him attending HHS.
Name: jessie ~~~~~~~~~~ Wed-Aug 1, 2007, 8:45 am - HHS Time
City & State: los angeles, CA
Message: My dad worked at the Fox for almost 30 years...the balcony was great. The theater is still there, but in a shambles. It breaks my heart to drive by it. So I haven't for years. I really wish the city would do something wonderful with it. I think it's one of the few old theaters left around town.

Message: Jerry Miles has a new video. "We Didn't Start the Fire" by Billy Joel. Don't miss it. For those of us born in the late '40s - early '50s, it is a "fast" history of the times we lived. I'm proud to say that Jerry was inspired by our recent reunion audio CD.
Name: Tim Helble ~~~~~~~~~~ Tue-Jul 31, 2007, 7:11 pm - HHS Time
City & State: Columbia, MD
Message: Hi all - I haven't posted anything in years, but I still check out the feedback page once in a while. I had a Cougar sighting of sorts back here in Washington D.C. - I was getting off the bus last Friday at the Silver Spring Metro Station and saw this banner for the Legg Mason Tennis Tournament attached to the fence. As I recall, the Bryan brothers - Bob and Mike - are sons of Carl Bryan (1966). They won the doubles event last year's tournament, so that's why they're holding the championship cup. I understand they are on quite a tear lately - they've won something like three tournaments in a row. In addition to being good students and leaders, all the Bryans were pretty good athletes - Mary Allice (1970) was in GSA and John (1973) was on the tennis team. Carl was at HHS before my time, but I wouldn't be surprised if he was on the tennis team plus some other sports too.
Name: Glenn Crist ~~~~~~~~~~ Tue-Jul 31, 2007, 6:28 pm - HHS Time
City & State: Sonoma, Calif.
Message: O.K., here I go with my big ideas again. We all bemoan the loss of Senior Square [I didn't visit it as a frosh or as a senior (although now after numerous invites from AARP, I suddenly feel the urge)]. If "they" could sell bricks to pay for the BB memorial, why couldn't we sell other bricks in the wall (or the square) to rebuild "hallowed ground." Any excess could pay for beautification projects, trees, study nooks, movies at Nyman Hall. Any other seniors want to join me?

Message: No cry rooms in any of the Inglewood theaters, Paco. I guess they only allowed happy babies. The only two that I remember in the area was Westchester and the Imperial.
Name: Paco ~~~~~~~~~~ Tue-Jul 31, 2007, 5:42 pm - HHS Time

Message: Didn't the Inglewood Fox have a crying room? I know they had a balcony. Butch Morris had a cousin, Roxie, boy did we have a time up there..

City & State: Murrieta, Ca.
Message: Clark, let me 2nd John's comments and thank you for your thoughts about the Imperial. As a York School alum, the Collins' spent alot of time at that theatre & the Crenshaw stores. I remember a coin operated, rifle shooting gallery game that rocked! Might have been at Woolworth's or one of the other "Five & Dime" stores.

Message: The very first job I had was at the Imperial Theater. It allowed me to buy my first car (a 46 ford) and insurance. I thought it was big money at 75 cents an hour. Yes it had a crying room in the back under the loge section. We called it "the makeout room". There was more of that than crying babies. I also worked at the Ritz Theater in Inglewood, they were owned by the same person. When my sister and I were little our Mom worked at J.C. Penneys in Inglewood. We would ride the bus to Inglewood, meet Mom for a couple dollars and then hit the Fox or United Artist, across the street. Kids couldn't do that in this day and age. Hope the Reunion for class of 77 is doing better than last reported, Bob is really looking forward to it.

Message: There was a crying room at the Imperial. It was the first one I ever saw. We used to think it was great fun to sneak into the crying room (the ushers didn't -- they would make us leave it). The first movie I remember seeing there was 'The Man From Planet X' in 1951.

Message: Does anyone remember "Kiddie Shows" at the Fox in Inglewood? They use to have them during the summer when the kids were out of school. Charms suckers, dots, jujubes, milk duds, abba zabbas, big hunks...I loved them all!
Name: Gary Bickers ~~~~~~~~~~ Tue-Jul 31, 2007, 10:11 am - HHS Time
City & State: pve cal
Message: The crying room was at the Paradise in Westchester. I never remember it being used but it was there for the 10-12 years my family went. Snickers Bars were $0.15 across the street at the Savon Drug Store. Watching HONDO with a Snickers in a place with no crying kids, what could be better.
