I have decided to join in the discussion of "the top movies of all time" with my own top twenty movie list. I've based my list on my love of specific movies, and the role they've played in my life's journey. The movies span over eight decades. I call them "signposts."
I have previously posted my #1 through #5 signposts, here is my #6 signpost.
#6 – Scarecrow – 1973
The practice of going by myself, to a matinee showing of a movie that I knew nothing about began in 1973 with the movie Scarecrow. While on the road as a musician, just to kill time, I entered the old Union Theater around noon in downtown Union, New Jersey with no expectations of what I was about to see. Maybe there were three or four other people there for the matinee, nevertheless, I had the feeling that I was about to take this movie discovery journey absolutely all alone.
