77 Sunset Stripped

Legs scissored in feminine grace
there's women all over the place
In line, they sit queued
Diagon'lly viewed
the women recede into space

From IMDb: I Love Trouble (S. Sylvan Simon, 1948) was
based on a magazine story by Roy Huggins, who also wrote the
screenplay. The movie provided the round-about genesis
of the TV series 77 Sunset Strip (also created by
Huggins). In this movie, Franchot Tone plays LA detective
Stuart Bailey, which is same name of detective played ten
years later by Ephrem Zimbalist Jr. in the 1958 movie Girl
on the Run
(1958), which, in turn, was spun off into the 77
Sunset Strip TV series that same year.
