Here is Sean Connery in Dr. No, which technically came out in 1962, but was shot in 1961. Nothing said fashionable gentleman in the 60’s like James Bond/Sean Connery. Here you see him in his Picking Up Girls At The Beach Ensemble. I think we all know the Tuxedo look. What else could a guy need to know about clothes in 1961?
The Selectric was quite the innovation in typewriters. Instead of each letter on an individual arm that struck the paper they were all on a ball that pivoted and the ball moved the length of the paper rather than having the paper move from side to side. Also you could change out the ball for different fonts!
As they said on Mad Men when one secretary was showing a new girl The typewriter “Don’t be overwhelmed by all the technology, the men who designed it made it simple enough for a woman”.
Stay tuned for the behind-the-scenes shots of the Transformation, coming tomorrow!

The Absent-Minded Professor was such a big success at the Box Office for Disney in 1961 that it became the first Disney movie to have spawned a sequel: 1963’s Son of Flubber.
This is the famous “bouncing” scene from the film (funny, but a little long…):
Get out your combs ladies and start back ratting. What is that? Think back to your mother or your grandmother. Take portions of your hair, hold it straight up in the air, then take a comb and brush each section backward. Once your entire head is a total “rats nest” Shape it into the above.
This movie was a big hit for Disney, grossing over $6 Million when it was released in 1961.
