In this episode of Movies Are Magic, host Jennifer puts the spotlight on everyone's favorite caricature of a flapper, celebrating a birthday in August: Miss Betty Boop! Jennifer talks with Kami & Chris aka the "Classic Couple," who are Betty Boop aficionados. And rounds out the hour with some Betty-Boop-inspired musical selections, namely a couple of songs sung by Mae Questel, who provided the voice of Betty Boop for many years, as well as the voice of Popeye's animated love interest Olive Oyl. Mae started out in vaudeville, and the last role I saw her in was as Aunt Bethany in the film "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" in 1989. This episode aired in its entirety live on Sunday, August 7, at 7 p.m. PST, on the dial in Sonoma and streaming at ksvy.org.
