Car 54 Where Are You? - Joan Crawford Didn't Say No

Car 54 Where Are You? - Joan Crawford Didn't Say No

What can an early 1960’s TV program, “Car 54” tell us about life today?

Set in the Bronx, a fast talking influential Jewish “Bubbi” sets herself up as a “Matchmaker” to connect the average Bronx NY citizen to a Hollywood Star. 

False narratives and hope comes in all sizes and shapes throughout all generations. They want us to believe them for their own “bottom line”, which can be for money or control, with enticing words to tickle our senses to grab onto their “sales pitch”.  Buyer Beware.
