I saw “The Longest Day” one evening in 1962 with my best friend Jeff Nix, ‘67 and his parents. We’d waited months to see it, and the Fox Fullerton was full. The entire audience enjoyed the thrills and suspense together. That's how movies should be seen and enjoyed. I’ve remembered that evening and that movie vividly ever since. It was one of the most enjoyable times I've ever had. I actually felt I was a part of it all somehow. Sometimes a great movie can make you feel that way.
One moment that stands out for me was when the German soldier in a bunker at Normandy looked in his telescope and saw a panorama of Allied ships and boats approaching in the Channel. His face showed stark terror as he turned to tell his fellow soldiers. An unforgettable moment!
