    I have a happy connection with two things about the BB movie. Almost every Sunday, I go through the intersection of Cumberland and Talcott in Park Ridge on my way to church, and every once in a while I think about the movie. The second is that my husband and I (who celebrate our 25th anniversary in two days) got married at 118 N. Clark St. As Cook County residents, we could have been married at any of the county’s courthouses, but we just had to go downtown. Thankfully our car did not self-destruct on reaching the building.
