Frank Hardy Made My Photographs Two

Sanger Theater in the ’50’s …

with 4 comments

This was taken sometime in the mid 1950’s … the movie playing at the time was called ” The Racers “.  Cesar Romero starred in the movie.  I can not recall ever seeing it play on late night television, so that must tell you something about the movie.  The Sanger management must have had some type of tie-in with a car club and had a contest.  I guess my father must have gone down and photographed the winning car and it’s owner, which is pictured below.

The winner was a LT  Peter Lind and he was the owner of this Jaguar that won.  The man on the left was a Rainwater, not sure which one.  Anyone seeing this that has any remembrances of this event or movie, please share it with us.  Thanks for looking …

  1. Brings back memories. In the 50’s, my parents would take me to movies at the Saenger. In the 60’s, my sister got a job as assistant to the manager (glorified secretary) Mr. Floyd Lyle(s). I loved getting into the movies for free, so, shortly after she went back to college, I became an usher there (1962-63). We also got into the Rex theater for free since it was owned by the same company.
