For the Chosen Few
Oh the hair! Fantabulous!
Insight into just how fabulous:"Holiday Inn" is, of course, from the Movie of the same name in which Bing Crosby sang "White Christmas".The original inn, where the movie was filmed, was the Village Inn in Monte Rio, California--on the Russian River just north of San Francisco. The area around Monte Rio and Geurneville became a well-known gay resort, and the Village Inn's clientele was primarily gay. I've never understood why the Village Inn doesn't make more of its fabulous connection--as the original Holiday Inn--but I suppose part of Savoir Faire is sotto voce nonchalance.
