Resolved Question: Does Billie Jean King
I and my brother noticed what looks like a photo of Billie Jean King towards the end of the Johnny Depp/Tim Burton "Dark Shadows" movie. It's the scene where Barnabas Collins is lifting Roger Collins in the area angry at Roger for being a poor father for David Collins. In the background, you can see a photo of what looks like Billie Jean King. They show this photo one more time. Did Tim Burton put a photo of Billie Jean King in this movie? Are my brother and I the only ones who have noticed this?
