Happy National Drive-in Day!

The first movie ever screened at a drive-in, 84 years ago tonight in Camden, New Jersey, was a 1932 Adolphe Menjou picture called Wives Beware.

Except that wasn’t the original name of the movie; it was originally titled Two White Arms. The name was changed for the reissue.

So on National Drive-in Day, we share with you a recording of Menjou performing the title song from that movie. Warning: Menjou was a much better actor than a singer. But unless and until the movie, long considered a lost film, is found, this recording is as close as drive-in fans will get to experiencing it.

Longtime readers probably know that we’re huge devotees of drive-in movie theatres, so we perked right up recently when we watched a Richard Karn-hosted edition of Family Feud that included a question about ozoners.

The question was, “Name a rule at a drive-in theatre”; six answers were posted on the board, and the two families combined to name three of them.

Wondering how many you might be able to guess? Just watch the video below to test your Drive-in Theatre Etiquette I.Q.
