1974--The Greatest Year for Movies?

Rochester in Northern Kentucky, 1947

Who needs Jack Benny? In 1947, Eddie "Rochester" Anderson took his own act on the road, here appearing in Northern Kentucky at the famous (and probably whites only) Lookout House supper club, literally just up (an admittedly long) hill from where I'm sitting as I type these words! 

Almost every day he was here, he got some coverage in the local papers and he was even held over for a second week!


And look who was playing over in the next county at the same time, a full two years before their first movie!
