Introduction to the Movies

Personal Insights

I don't remember what my first exposure to motion pictures was, but I do have a lot of fond memories of movies from the era of the 1950s and 1960s. While I was growing up, my parents had several good friends in the U.S. Navy who would be stationed on St. Thomas during the winter months while war games took place in the Caribbean. Thanks to these family friends, my father was able to borrow some of the 16mm prints of movies that were played for the Navy guys who were here for the war games. As a result, I grew up seeing many of the big budget musicals, dramas, action adventures, and comedies of that era. This section of Sandcastle V.I. pays tribute to some of my favorite movies -- ranging from the musical magic of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, to the Disney animated classics, to the latest and greatest scifi flixs. I hope you have fun exploring these pages.
