Happy Valentine's Day!

Channel 81 is screening, as I write, "My Foolish Heart."

On this day, sixty-seven years ago, I watched this film in an open-air cinema situated at the North end of Sultan Hussein in Ismailia, Egypt. I was accompanied by a khaki-clad (including cute ankle socks!) young lady of the opposite sex.
The 'weepie' climax of the film was ruined as the Port Said-Cairo express roared by less than 100 yards away...

Now it can be told....
