Automat: A Run for Your Money (1949)

Horn & Hardart Automat

In this our fourth in a series of Food Flicks that celebrate Horn & Hardart‘s Automat, we see a scene from the 1949 Ealing Studios comedy A Run for Your Money. In this post-WWII flick, David ‘Dai Number 9’ Jones (Donald Houston) and Thomas ‘Twm’ Jones (Meredith Edwards) dine at an Automat-like eatery.

Enjoy — with coffee and a slice of pie.
