Many years later, my son was a similar age to when I saw Geronimo, and it was coming on tv!! I said, "we have to watch this, it's a great movie!" Well......... Chuck Connors with his blue eyes playing a Native American didn't quite hit the spot this time! Since Geronimo, I had seen movies like Soldier Blue, and Little Big Man. It just wasn't the same........ But, I still have the great memory of coming out of the movie house, running down the street with my friend, shouting Geronimo!!

Q: What would Geronimo yell when jumping from some elevated location?






A: MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

The first movie I remember watching was Halloween.
I was about 9 and my mom thought it was hilarious to scare the crap out of me by jumping out of the dark at the scary parts.
Still one of my favorite movies, though! And spawned a life-long love for horror films.

The first movie I remember seeing in a theater was "Hans Christian Andersen" with Danny Kaye. I was 5 and my father took me to see it in NY. I still love that movie.

Around the World in 80 Days, with my family in the back of the station wagon at a drive-in. I must have been about 5, probably 1957.
