Memories of Sunset & Gower

Isn't it funny how certain things can trigger a memory? When I smell Aramis cologne, it reminds me of a high school boyfriend. When I smell Shalimar, it reminds me of watching my mom get dressed up to go out. Well a friend posted this photo on Facebook today, & memories came flooding back. This is the corner of Sunset & Gower in the 1960's. We filmed Bewitched right here at Screen Gems & I used to eat at the Copper Skillet all the time. One day, Johnnie Whitaker took me on my first date here. To be fair, I don't think he considered it a date, since I think I was only 5 years old & he was probably 10. It was while we were filming the Jack & the Beanstalk episode of Bewitched. I ordered breaded veal cutlet & he paid with a check. Awwww, memories!!

That corner is now a Denny's and the "Gower Gulch" strip mall.

Thanks for the info, Brent. That's sad that the original restaurant isn't there.
