Suzy Falk in If It’s Tuesday, This must be Belgium (Donovan)


If It’s Tuesday, This Must Be Belgium is a 1969 romantic comedy film made by Wolper Pictures and released by United Artists. It was directed by Mel Stuart, filmed on location throughout Europe, and features many cameo appearances from various stars.

The title, also used by a 1965 documentary on CBS television that filmed one such tour, was taken from a magazine cartoon caption, humorously depicting the whirlwind nature of European tour schedules, which formed the premise of the film’s plot.

Bojoura-If It’s Tuesday It Must Be Belgium (“Wordless Wednesday Treat” or “Breaking all rules”)


Bojoura, born Raina Cleuver van Melzen (April 15, 1947), is a folk and pop vocalist, whose greatest success came in the late 1960s and 1970s.

Born in The Hague, The Netherlands, Bojoura was discovered by George Kooymans of the rock band Golden Earring, who went on to write and produce many of her songs. Bojoura scored her first hit in 1967 with the Kooymans ballad “Everybody’s Day,” and in 1969 charted once more in Europe with her version of the song “Frank Mills” from the Broadway musical Hair. Through the mid 1970s she remained one of the most popular singers in Holland. Bojoura is married to the Dutch drummer Hans Cleuver, who was a founding member of the progressive rock band Focus.

High Unemployment Expected Through 2012, Reports Congressional Budget Office

 
 The Congressional Budget Office is predicting sluggish growth for the U.S. economy over the next year. Speaking before the congressional “super committee” on the deficit, CBO Director Douglas Elmendorf said the official unemployment rate will remain above nine percent through next year’s elections.

Douglas Elmendorf: “Incoming data and other developments since early July suggest that the economic recovery will continue but at a weaker pace than we had anticipated. With output growing at only a modest rate, CBO expects employment to expand very slowly, leaving the unemployment rate, as depicted by the dots in the figure, close to nine percent through the end of next year.”
