Does anyone remember being part of the audience in the deep blue light of celluloid night, as the settlers or soldiers talked in hushed tones about the coming battle?
Where, in the day before, terrible losses occurred, and now the remaining survivors in their circled wagon trains or army forts awaited dawn with certain knowledge that worse was sure to come.
For a ten-year-old at the movies in the late 1950's, that blue ‘day for night’ light bathing all of us was viewed with great apprehension of the violence that would be unleashed in the morning sunlight. And the fear was so thick that any remaining popcorn was totally forgotten, as the brave and not so brave whispered to each other.
Those are memories I still have of being twisted with anxiety in a theater seat a long time ago. Anyone else remember Hollywood tricks that took control and advantage of you when your mind was young and gullible?
