What was the first movie you remember watching?


Recommended Posts

I was quite young, but I remember seeing Jimmy Stewart in "Shenandoah" in the theater. "Spencer's Mountain" and "101 Dalmations" stick with me also! My parents used to take us to the local drive in quite often, there was even a playground for us to burn off energy before it got dark!

I'm sure others came before it, but the first I remember is Ferris Beuller's Day Off. (I was born in 1982.) My older brother and I thought it was the funniest thing we'd ever seen, and my mom rented it for us quite often over the course of a year or so. She would have saved money by just buying it for us. Saw it on TV again a few years ago and it wasn't as great as I remembered it. :P As for the first classic film I saw, it was probably either The Wizard of Oz or Singin' in the Rain.

The only other movies I remember at an early age were Disney movies like, Escape From Witch Mountain, No Deposit No Return, Super Dad, The Apple Dumpling Gang, One of Our Dinosaurs is Missing, The Cat From Outer Space, The Shaggy D.A., etc. The best drive-in memory was a double feature of Star Wars and The Island of Dr. Moreau.

At the age of three my older brother took me to see Fantasia. My mom was shopping for Christmas presents. I was totally into the movie. I made my brother

sit through three shows till I got sleepy. I was so totally into the music that I

ended up taking piano lessons. Still love classical music.

This truly dates me, but the very first movie I remember seeing-as a VERY small child, I might add, was " Annie Get Yor Gun" starring that blonde firecracker, Betty Hutton. I fell in love with her then and there. I'd see her in ANYTHING!! When Carol Burnett was on vacation during the Broadway run of " Fade Out, Fade In", I saw her replacement-Betty! I would lovel to have seen Carol, but I adored seeing Betty. She was a bit past her prime in this role, but what the hell! Old love affairs die hard. By the way, there's an excellent Robert Osborne interview with Betty which ran several years ago. If you haven't seen it, don't miss it. If you HAVE seen it, watch it again!
