  1. It used to be that studios would re-release their popular movies into the theaters every few years. My mom took me to see “The Sound of Music”. Loved it! We got the record, and I sang and made up dance routines with my little sister. (I always begged my mom to skip “Climb Every Mountain” – boring song!) It wasn’t until I was older that I understood the whole Nazi thing, or even later, how intensely romantic the story is! Now I just sympathize with Baroness Shrader – an older wealthy woman who just wants a safe companion to grow old with, yet has to compete with the cute young thing in the house.

    • Very cool memories Tonya. Thanks for sharing! Funny how we realize all the things we missed in those movies we saw as kids when we see them again as adults.

  2. My favorite childhood movie is definitely Star Wars. I came across it at a local library when I was five and was instantly struck by the menacing cover showing off Vader’s shiny helmet. While I had been watching Disney classics for as long as I can remember (Bambi, The Jungle Book, and my favorite, Tarzan) I have Star Wars to thank for my passion for movies. 🙂

  3. Brave Little Toaster terrified me, and I’ve heard that from other people as well. Star Wars is the best…but for childhood – I would probably say Aladdin as well. I wanted a magic carpet so badly!
