Jack Carson and Doris Day head for a cab in the parking lot of Schwab's in "My Dream Is Yours" (1949).I love it when Hollywood movies went out on location, thereby preserving iconic architecture, albeit only on film. This is a screen shot of Jack Carson and Doris Day flagging a cab in the parking lot of Schwab’s in “My Dream Is Yours” (1949.) The two things I like about this is a color shot of Schwab’s (and an even rarer side shot), and across the street we can see a “Glorifried Ham’n’Eggs (“From pan to mouth”). I’m guessing it was the same chain we see in the Tom Breneman building on Vine Street. I love the name “glorifried” – does anyone know if that was just a brand name, or was it a style of cooking ham and eggs?
