Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Ending the Season 5 finale of "Mad Men" with Nancy Sinatra singing "You Only Live Twice" was sheer genius!; #YOLT


You know why that's so if you know about Don Draper's true identity.

The iconic song was composed by John Barry and Leslie Bricusse. 


Earlier in the episode in what is now 1967, Don Draper goes to a Manhattan movie theater to see a matinee performance of the the new 007 spoof, "Casino Royale," starring Peter SellersDavid Niven Orson Welles, Ursula Andress and Woody Allen.
On an island of millions, whom do you think Don finds already sitting there in the theater by her lonesome as the film's score is playing, when she ought to be in her office at her new job at another advertising agency working on the women's cigarette account she was just assigned?
Yes, none other than Don Draper protégé Peggy Olson.
