So, I’m here at The Air and Space museam in DC, and it states that in order to be a flight attendant in the 1950s, under the appearance category, one must be attractive, “just below Hollywood standards.” It cracks me up to think that all these starlet rejects went into being a flight attendant as their “back-up plan.”
I’ve heard from a few of our major Hollywood stars today that if they hadn’t made it in Hollywood they would have liked to have become a flight attendant. Hmm….I do believe you’ve inspired a new Galley Gossip post! Thank you!
