Do you remember Sen-Sen?
“And bragging about how they’re going to cover up the tell tale scent with Sen-Sen.”
Music Man Reference
When I taught American history one of the activities I did was have the students watch and dig into the Robert Preston-Shirley Jones version of The Music Man (the more modern version is simply dreadful, avoid it if possible). The movie is literally chock-ablock full of popular culture references of the day, from the changing transportation and the shift to shopping in population centers instead of the general store to the pest house, it paints a full picture of what everyday life was like in an American small town at the beginning of the 1910s. (If you haven’t seen the movie yourself, go and watch it, I’ll wait…… if you have watch it again and really pay attention to every word they are all in there for a reason.)
