This past week, while doing a trainer workout, I was watching "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly".<br>
It was released in 1966, I was born in 68.<br>
I remember watching it when I was 5 - 6 years old. Clint Eastwood was my first movie hero. I even had my mom buy a brown towl and cut a hole in it so I could have a poncho just like Clint.<br>
It's one of my all time favorite movies.<br>
The soundtrack is a classic.<br>
There is no dialogue for the first 10 minutes.<br>
The 3 way duel at the end is just awesome.<br><br>
So what's your favorite movie that was released before you were born?

Easiest question EVER.<br><br>
The Wizard of Oz. I am so happy my kids are old enough to watch it now. It just never gets old and one of the very very few movies to stand the test of time. Seventy years after this movie was made, little girls all over the country are still dressing like Dorothy for Halloween.<br><br><img alt="" src="http://i115.photobucket.com/albums/n312/kristineklo/IMG_0542.jpg" style="border:0px solid;">

There were a lot of good movies released before I was born.<br>
I guess I'll go with Star Wars. no, no...<br><b>Terminator</b>. I love that movie, somehow. And my lifelong (since I was like 6) crush on Arnold isn't the only reason.

Good God! People born after The Terminator was released can read and write?<br><br>
Oh man, I'm old. I'm so, so old.

I was thinking the same thing!! I also remember waiting in line for hours at the movie theatre (not the video store!!) to see Star Wars.

Das Boat! - I think that came out before I was born. Maybe not. Regardless, I have fond memories watching that with my father, someone born and raised in German. We'd watch the version with subtitles. It was fun.

I even have learned my multiplication tables, too. <img alt="razz.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/razz.gif"><br><br><i>It was 24 years ago Terminator was released. I'm married and expecting a child!</i>

Stop it! Just stop it.<br><br>
I just had to resist the urge to arrange pre-paid funeral services. I can feel the lumbago coming on.
