Billy Wilder on 'Some Like It Hot'; Dodger stars pay a visit, November 4, 1958

Billy Wilder discusses the strengths of typecasting in "Some Like It Hot," a movie that was filmed in 1958.


Movie note: Ernest Hemingway makes a cameo appearance in "The Old Man and the Sea."

Add this story to the list of things from the 1950s you'd rarely see today.

Don Drysdale and Carl Furillo visited The Times and The Mirror to kick off the Dodgers' tour of local businesses. What a smart, easy way to meet some fans and keep the team in the newspaper during football and basketball seasons.

"We want them to meet as many fans as possible at handshaking range and we believe that the best way to do this will be to have them visit plants where our Dodger fans work," General Manager Buzzie Bavasi said.

Hard to imagine seeing Manny Ramirez at the office.
