“Never On Sunday” Playing at Midwest Theatre in Sept. / Oct. 1960 which featured Melanie Mercouri, playing a Prostitue with the next movie playing was Butterfield 8, starring Elizabeth Taylor, a part time call girl…Was playing when I began as an Usher.. Ironic as the first run followed with high gross features like Cimarron, Longest Day, etc and ended life X rated porn features in the mid 70’s..Sad ending for a grand theatre..See ad pic’s of above in Photo Section.
