50 Years Ago Today…

one of my favorite 1960’s movies Model Shop opened. Director Jacques Demy’s sumptuously filmed paean to Los Angeles starring tight jean clad Gary Lockwood as a drafted architect spending his last day of freedom before army duty & the women he encounters. Anouk Aimee (of A Man and a Woman fame) as a mysterious French model he becomes infatuated with. Baby doll blonde Alexandra Hay as his grasping starlet girlfriend. Hilarie Thompson as a hitchhiking hippie. And Anne Randall as the model shop’s receptionist. LA never looked more inviting and Anne talks making the movie in my McFarland book Glamour Girls of Sixties Hollywood.
