Barbara Billingsley Speaks Jive

I didn’t know that the late Barbara Billingsley was the “I speak jive” lady from the 1980 comedy Airplane.

That scene might not make the grade these days, but I do love the moment after “cut me some slack, jack” where they all start arguing at once. Billingsley was born in 1915, so she was about 65 at the time.

Good night, Mrs. Cleaver, wherever you are.
