    “The Apartment” is great, Shirley MacLaine is cute as a bug’s ear and Lemmon is always first class. However, “Macumba Love” has va-va-voom June Wilkinson. No contest. How bad can “Macumba Love” be?

    Snigger all you like, but I’ve been using the Chemex that my mother bought in the early fifties & it brews up a mighty fine cuppa joe! The secret? The double-fold filter that screens out all the impurities in the ground beans. Yum!

    Ya know… The Chemex is still considered today to be the BEST way to brew coffee:
    Also, interesting to note that half the theaters that were playing Macumba Love were Drive-In theaters (about half I went to in the 1970s.) None left today. Olympic -on Bundy, now a Cadillac dealer (soon to be something else); Edwards in Arcadia / El Monte -now condos; Edgewood in Baldwin Park -now Kaiser Permanente; Pickwick in Burbank -now a Pavilions shopping center. If only I had some voodoo potions to bring them back.

    Definitely, Macumba Love.
