Retro Friday: Flying to 1950s Los Angeles
Ahh, the joys of travel during the golden age of air flight. Here's a 1952 film, produced by TWA, that follows a flight to Los Angeles -- and a group of dapper folks enjoying the West Coast. Check out the weird subtext as actor Richard Carlson invites a newlywed couple to his house -- and, with his wife, gets all touchy feely. with them.
According to video commenters, plane seen here is the TWA L1049A Super Constellation; this flight flew from Chicago Midway airport to LAX.
