Jan. 13, 1959: Horseracing, Al Capone, a poem, a couple of funny stories, and we have another Matt Weinstock column. Weinstock perfected the art of the light touch. Rarely anything controversial and he never swung for the fence, like Coates did. A perfect way to end another day in Los Angeles, 1959..
And a double feature of “Screaming Skull” and “The Brain Eaters.”
The column originally appeared in the L.A. Mirror in 1959 and was republished in 2009 on latimes.com. It is available at Archive.org.
