The status of ushers
I’m curious about the status of ushers (and usherettes) in the golden age of movie palaces.
I think I read in Ben Hall that only the best-looking, most pimple-free boys were sought for ushering jobs. But I don’t recall that he said anything else about it.
Was this a high-status, sought-after job? Or was it more like working for McDonalds today?
Would love to see a thread about the job (and memories) if possible.
I was a kid in the mid-50s, in a small town,. We had usherettes, and I don’t know if it was a cool job.
