1971 favorites II

When it comes to detailed knowledge of vintage films, we call on New Orleans resident Jessie Watkins who built and manages one of the largest up to date databases on American movies that exists. She lives and works in town for a group of New Orleans maritime attorneys as a paralegal and general manager, often tasked with updating their site. When not assisting injured seamen, she’s writing for websites or looking up information for other writers – the demand for legacy movie data never ceases.
