Unlike FC my first impressions of things filmlike were by hearing. In
1955, I was five and had a 2 year old brother. I was in the afternoon
kindergarten class and didn't have to wake up early for school. We ate
dinner at 7:30 pm and went to bed about 8:15. My parents would then
watch tv and I would listen to the shows until I fell asleep. I
remember listening to "Climax" and being puzzled why stories that I
followed with great interest had nothing to do with a mountain
climber. Of course, I watched the kiddy shows, but that was a
completely different experience.
My first movie was Carmen Jones in 1954 and I went every Saturday
afternoon thereafter with my great aunt. We saw adult movies. You have
no idea how long "Giant" seems when you're six.
