Judy and Mabel in New York City

"Judy and Mabel" is the amazing tale of two middle-aged spinster sisters, Judy and Mabel Jones from New Bern, North Carolina, who venture to New York City for a week's vacation in the summer of 1969. This is their first time ever traveling that far north so they have no experience of being in "The Big City of Manhattan." After timidly approaching their aging parents with their grand vacation idea, they soon found themselves being warned again and again, “do not talk to strangers, keep your money hidden in your garter belts, say your daily prayers, and above all else, behave like nice, respectable, Southern church going ladies!” And these warnings came not only from their folks but also from all over their small town. more
