What was your earliest film-related memory?
After wracking my brain, I think the earliest I have is when I was eight, and we were on my DadÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s first sabbatical, in England.

On said TV played ROBINSON CRUSOE ON MARS, which at the time, I felt was the acme of American film-making. (This can be attributed to the fact that I was eight, and that Dad brought us a few rounds of cider, not realizing it was alcoholic in England.
