Drive-Ins

Sunset_Drive_in

I passed the old Drive-In, the one we used to go to when I was a kid, that time we saw ‘Giant’, for instance, on the giant tilted screen, and I wanted to be cool and edgy as James Dean, and how after the movie when we were driving home around midnight, we heard on he radio that a plane had just fallen from the sky during a snowstorm over a corn field in Iowa and a chill filled our car the day the music died.

 

which movie star did you want to be like when you were a kid?

did you watch movies at drive-ins with your folks? do you remember any particular film?

what were you doing when you heard about the deaths of Buddy Holly, the Big Bopper and Richie Valens?

  1. I wanted to be like Hayley Mills. We went to the drive-in quite often, but my clearest memory is from the first time I went without an “adult,” since my neighbor and friend had just gotten her driver’s license. The movie was “Psycho” and I certainly regretted being out there in the dark!
