Day #21,607

Walk km 6566-6579 (15.028 to go): around Stanley Park

Movie #1575: Hot Rod Girl (1956, Leslie Martinson)

Not a bad picture. The plot is useless but the main attraction here is the California youth culture. This would be the same stuff that the Wilson boys were watching that inspired them to become the Beach Boys. On the soundtrack we have no rock'n'roll: instead we have Bud Shank, Barney Kessel, Maynard Ferguson and other west coast jazzbos. And to top it off, the cop is played by Dodgers second baseman, Chuck Connors.
