Flashback: Childhood Movie Favorites


When I was a kid the local channel for awesome weekend movies was KPLR Channel 11 St. Louis. Fantastic Voyage was one I looked forward to. VHS wasn’t available at our home until 1983, channel 11 was my friend.

Another good one is Tora! Tora! Tora! It’s now available on Netflix. My Dad and I would always watch it together beginning when I was about 8 years old. I hadn’t seen it for years and I didn’t realize it was made in 1970. Honolulu/1970, my first thought was that there would be several character actors from Hawaii Five-O since it was in production at that time on Oahu. Boy was I right, many is an understatement.
