The phenomenon has continued for 15 years and the public’s enthusiasm shows no signs of abating. “They love the older movies because they represent the height of American style,” Muller explained. “In terms of the cinematography, the wardrobe, the automobiles, the nightclubs and music — that was America at its zenith, and it has been downhill ever since.”.

Principal Maria Evans told me that many of the immigrant families that have kids at Washington don’t usually set a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, with an oven-roasted turkey trimmed with stuffing and cranberry sauce. Instead, many of them make batches of turkey tamales for their holiday tables.
