View Full Version : Silly Reference in "Hairspray"

I just saw Hairspray this morning. There is a scene when Tracy is making her debut on the Corny Collins show. Penny runs home to tell Tracy's parents to turn on the television. At this point, Edna makes a remark about not wanting to see John Glenn on television because he was just in some Hollywood studio! Okay, it made me laugh.

Oh, and they also had instant on televisions back it the early 1960's...no television needed to warm up :)
