I believe it was founded about the same time that this film was being 
made, in the mid-50's.  Juniors is on the West Side [Westwood and Pico, 
if memory serves] but it did not take long after our relocation in 1966 
for my Brooklynite father to decide it was unworthy of the name and has 
sneered at it ever since.  I snuck in there during college and didn't 
find it as bad as all that, but when you are trying to match a homesick 
memory, what can possibly live up to that?

Many thanks for the Magnificent Cheesecake Recipe.  I am having some 
difficulty envisioning the crust structure with the strips on the 
bottom.  Aren't they obscured by the cheesy goodness?

Yours in turophilia,
