  1. I has to be nylon stockings. I thought it interesting that Lady Hallam in UP/Down got involved with a producer of Nylons, I wonder if it was suppose to be a Dupont. They would have been friends of the Kennedys social station.

    1. Nylons is correct. I have yet to fathom the intense devotion people had to nylon stockings, although I suppose they were far superior to the alternative.

  2. Just sneaked a peak at the answer. I read somewhere that the alternative to stockings was something akin to today's sunless tanning lotion...that streaked back then too.

    1. Yes! Isn't that part about the painted-on stockings a little crazy?
