I was honored to be asked a while back by Brandie Ashe to be included in the month long series “First Movie Memories” over at True Classics with a host of others sharing their first experiences with the movies. Included are a wide variety of folks from various walks of life including a law professor, a former professional ballroom dancer, a lawyer and some familar bloggers. Reading the stories of each individual has been at times funny, tender, moving and always interesting. Writing my story gave me a chance to explore my own journey. My piece appeared this past Friday so I thought I would link it here to share. Below also are some photos of a few of the films and filmmakers mentioned and who influenced me along the way.
