Today’s “Movie Memory” comes from the slightly twisted and utterly delightful mind of Jill Blake, headmistress of the essential classic film blog Sittin’ on a Backyard Fence. In her hilarious essay, Jill looks back at her childhood and reflects on the movies–both great and not-so-great–that she shared at home with her parents while growing up. This thoughtful look back at the ways in which movies form bonds between parents and children is simply a must-read!
Head on over to the Fence and check out Jill’s memories of “Movies at Home!”
