1969-70: I'm taken to THE VALLEY OF GWANGI and spend most of my time under the chair. Later, I ask my father how they did the dinosaurs and he tells me they were giant robots.

I'm still hoping you'll answer my question from last week about OWEN MEANY.

Sorry, I'd missed that post. Owen Meany was one of those strange works that managed to be heavy-handed yet obscure at the same time, exemplified by the fact that all of Owen's dialogue is written IN CAPITAL LETTERS. Literally. It's as if the book is actually yelling at you, and the story seemed contrived and unbelievable even by Irving standards.

I didn't hate the loosely adapted film version, Simon Birch.

In 1977 'The Spy Who Loved Me' rocked my 10-yr old world faster and harder than 'Star Wars'.
I think Star Trek reruns had already twined themselves in my DNA by then.
