 It was interesting viewing the Warholic celebration of Esso under the umbrellas of cherbourg.                                                                                                                                                             I wonder if the French film shared a symbiotic relationship with the ye-ye culture.....                                                                                                                                                                                     Indeed, one its stars - Catherine Deneuve, was a generation peer of the switched-on ingenue of Francoise Hardy and  Sylvie Vartan.

 The live television scene at the beginning of THE GAZEBO (1959) reminded me of the story about Rod Serling, suffering from a bad case of the "Madison Avenue heebie-jeebies" during a live broadcast of one of his teleplays, being ordered out of the control room by director John Frankenheimer.

Never heard of that story before. Interesting.

 If I correctly recall, TopBilled, it was a story recounted by John Frankenheimer himself.                                                                                                                                                                               It presumably occurred during the evening of June 19, 1958, as sponsorship had already given Rod Serling an Excedrin headache over the following:
