Saw Hitchcock’s “The Birds” at a private screening at the Lakeside in 1963 for theater operator’s. Film Row’s Screening room’s were not large enough to accomodate the growing number of prospective bidder’s and screenings were utilized in and out of hours of various theater’s from time to time. The Birds became a huge hit in 1963 with record earnings.

Back a number of years my old treasure hunting club obtained permission from the land owners to metal detect the Wizbang town site. The only visible remains were a few decayed foundations. About 15 of us searched the site and did find a number of early 1900’s coins. My find was a 1907 well worn penny..Anyway the land owners did provide some of the history to our group and yes, the name was just as it says as there were a number of the ladies in red that provided oil workers with entertainment..Interesting area.
