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,
