- The Graduate. The music, the whole feel is so '60's! I wore my tweed sleeveless reversible dress, with the matching coat.
- Gone With the Wind. Before the advent of VCR's we just waited for old movies to reappear in the theaters. I had to wait about 4 years after I read the book before this one came back around in 1967. My mom had described it in detail and there was a notice in the paper two months before it opened, so I was excited beyond belief. Sher drove her VW and actually flipped a U-ie on Main Street in a snowstorm when we saw a parking spot. We burst out crying in anticipation when the music started, much to the dismay of the viewers around us. I was sobbing out loud when Scarlet vowed, "I'll never be hungry again!" (I had a poster of Rhett Butler in our college dorm, and after I was married I hung it in my bathroom for lots of years. Yikes!)
- West Side Story (I went with a group of 12 and 13-year-old girls and we all bawled loudly during the scene after Tony got shot. Talk about hormonal! It was on a Saturday afternoon at the Southeast Theater in Sugarhouse.)
- The Young Philadelphians (I watched this on TV with my mom when I was 18. We both had the Hong Kong flu, but we stayed up until 2:am to see it. My mom loved Paul Newman and I could see why in this movie.)
- The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (the music, Clint's poncho, stubble and dangling cigarette...c'mon, what's ugly about that? He didn't even have lines! He made my day!)
- To Kill a Mockingbird
- Remains of the Day
- All the President's Men
- Good Morning, Viet Nam
- The Great Escape
Was there a certain time or experience that opened your eyes to the world, and made you think in a bigger way? Has a movie or book given you insight?
In the category of movies I could watch over and over again:
- The Verdict
- 84 Charing Cross Road
- A Few Good Men
- Dead Poet Society
