Snakes !!

Snakes for the Memory

When I managed the Woods Theater in downtown Chicago, we premiered a classic film titled "Stanley". It involved a deranged person named Tim who gained revenge on his adversaries by use of a snake named "Stanley"!

On the premiere day (May 26, 1972) the Woods lobby was filled with cages of snakes! The co-star of the film, Susan Carroll, was on hand to promote this epic film. Seeking more paying customers than were coming through the doors, Susan wound a huge snake around her neck and walked outside the theater onto the sidewalk in front of the Woods. It was amazing to see the crowded mid-morning traffic on the sidewalk in front of the Woods diminish as passersby spotted the coiled reptile and decided they were needed elsewhere!
