we love this story (by the very cool Jennifer Mendelsohn) because it's EXACTLY what our book gets at. That one nagging memory that you slowly, over years, convince yourself you dreamed, or that somehow you were the only one it happened to. And then when you find a kindred spirit who remembers it (or open our book and find it there), it's EUPHORIA! Like finally scratching that out-of-reach itch.
"Winter of the Witch" was a 1969 short that a lot of kids saw in school, and it later haunted their minds for decades. Magic trippy pancakes! Further proof that filmmakers like the Kroffts were far from alone in their unique Sixties craziness.
Did you see it? Or is there another film, maybe seen in school, maybe not, that occasionally seeks out the corners of your mind? Post it here and we'll put our retro community minds to work!
I'll start us off with mine:
In second grade, we had to watch a short about how to use the phone. I don't remember much about it except I can totally visualize the interior of that house in my mind even today, and I think the kids were taught to answer it "Johnson residence, Kim speaking" or whatever their names were. And I wanted to answer OUR phone all fancy that way but no one did it at our house and looking back, why were kids encouraged to tell total strangers and possible pervs their real name anyway? I know, I know, different times. Can anyone find this short online for me? Would love to see it again
