Message: Amazimg! I finally found the Wizard of Oz back in Kansas and got some brains so I realized a Hawthorne boy does not belong in the Midwest and hotfooted it home. Immediately had a Cougar sighting on return...Had breakfast at Good Stuff in Hermosa and met Antonio VBillegas ('99). My timing was good though because fellow Cougar Pauline (Potisha ) Jeffers '74 left Wichita at the same time.
Welcome home Clark and thanks for the sighting

Message: Andy Devine .. He is from Kingman Az, and they have "Andy Devine" Day and a parade. Also a street named after him . Someone wanted to change the name of the street and the town folk said No No No. In regard to "Invaders from Mars" ... I really thought it was a cool flick but whats always bugged me was seeing the zippers on the back of those Martians LOL. But their leader was cool he was the dude in the class ball. The last flick i remeber @ the Plazza was "The three stooges go to Mars"! But one of my all time favs was "War of the worlds" and Godzilla! CLASSIC!

When he heeled, after a long rehab, he was left with the raspy voice, he was lucky he could talk at all Jorge

Message: Message; Back in 1955 I saw this movie at the plaza theater in 3-D revenge of the creature, Clint Eastwood had his first screen role as a lab technician, Clint played Rowdy Yates on the t.v show Rawhide , from 1959 t0 1966, at the end of each show they would say Head-em up move them out. Rifle-man Chuck Connors played baseball for the chicago cubs also for the cubs minor league team the los angels angels in 1952. Gene Autry was my favorite cowboy, gene was the first singer to have a million seller record called that silver haired daddy of mine. Robert Mitchum appeared in a number of Hopalong Cassidy films before he became a big movie star. Actress Rita Hayworth under the stage name of Rita Cansino appeared in B-westerns with Tex Ritter. Some of my favorite cowboy movie stars were Bob Steele, Hoot Gibson, Ken Maynard Johnny Mack Brown. Best western that i saw was Shane with Alan Ladd at the plaza theater in 1953, at the end of the movie Shane Shane come back. Pete Nelson class of 1957

Actually Andy Devine only did a few episodes. Before Andy did "Andy's Gang" it was the Buster Brown Show with Smilin' Ed McConnell who started it all on radio.

Message: When I was living in the San Diego area in the late 60's one of the drive-ins ran B-movie horror flicks back-to-back until late into the night. My favorites - the one where giant rabbits terrorized Arizona (Night of the Lepus, I think) and The Navy vs the Night Monsters (may not have the title correct but it was a lot like The Thing. Seems like a lot of people and animals were getting irradiated and enlarged and/or changed back in those days. Then there was one that pre-dated the shower scene in Psycho where some evil hypnotist was manipulating minds and there was a scene in the shower that really scared me. I believe that the House on Haunted Hill is based in a book The Haunting of Hill House which is one of the scariest books I have ever read. I am sure some of the movie buffs out there will be able to figure out the real names of these movies:)

In my fondest memories, What about the Drop-In at Hawthorne Memorial center? Those dances were so much fun and many friendships were made through the Love of Live music and dance. In speaking Love, Gary Wesche, says it all in best boyfriend.
Hi Catherine, glad you found us. Yes the Drop Ins at the Center were great fun. Actually the Gunga Din dances and after-game dances at Eucalyptus park were fun for my generation. Sorry I can't find your picture under class of 71, Robuck.

Message: The movie Paco's talking about was "Invaders From Mars". The Martians drilled a little hole in the back of their victims neck and implanted some kind of device that turned them zombie like. The thing that freaked me out about that movie was the scar that I noticed on my dad's neck, it looked just like the ones in the movie. After worrying that my dad was possessed, he assured me he just had a cyst removed. Hopefully he was telling me the truth, but it might explain our differences once I became a teenager!

Message: Paco I remember that movie. My wife said it was one that scared the pee waddin out of her. And as far as the old western stuff, Sharon I think the movie with the Duke and the DOG was named Hondo. Also how about Hombre with Paul Newman and a really early TV fare called Wanted Dead or Alive with Steve McQueen. He had a double barrel in a holster if I remember right. The Tingler also brings back a real incident to us. We were watching the movie at a drive in, where else and in a real scary part I felt something on my arm and I had my arm around Jude. There was somethng like a centipede, which looked alot like the thing in the movie, crawling on it. I yelled like hell as I threw my arm back and the night was never the same. We looked through that old Ford back to front, under the seats etc. and never found what it was. But that was the end of it for me. I couldn't even eat my popcorn or drink my our coke after that. Might be funny but it's the truth. I looked through that car the next day and still never found anything. Way to go COUG FOOTBALLERS. BITCHIN!! MAY THE COUGAR BE WITH YOU. Jake N Jude
