JIM: 'Annie' was two years old when Adair Drive In opened

Jim writes:
The Adair Drive In opened the same day the first ad appeared, May 21, 1952. "Annie Get Your Gun" had been released almost exactly two years earlier, but drive in theaters rarely showed first-run A-list movies. And too, "Annie," with several awards, great music by Irving Berlin, and blond bombshell Betty Hutton in the lead role, was a proven moneymaker, suitable for young and old alike. (The back story of the making of the movie reads like the script for a story arc of "As the Stomach Churns.") --Jim
