Back in the days of 1984 at the age of twelve I firmly believed I was destined for great things…as a gamer. Something that my Father with his wisdom realized was a very great folly, so while my hours of gaming were sadly cut short to study things like Civics and Algebra, I couldn’t help but continuously doodle video game characters on my homework and on my folders. My math teachers were less than supportive of this fascination I held with all things video game related, but luckily for me my Civics teacher, perhaps sensing a kindred soul, showed me a magazine with a picture for an upcoming Summer film called the Last Starfighter.
That Summer, it is an understatement to say that I fell in love with this film. While every actor does an outstanding job of portraying their character, the two standout performances come from the Music Man himself, Robert Preston, and a soon to be head of Omni Consumer Products in Old Detroit, Dan O’Herlihy. Oh, for what is worth I did in fact bump into my Civics teacher while attending a matinee, she seemed to enjoy it as much as I did.
