38. Weird Christmas Westworld story.

Dec 2016

When I was a terribly poor young thing living in New Orleans my man and I were out walking on Christmas Eve and passed the Saenger Theater, where Westworld was playing. We had our big old Doberman Pinscher (utter pussycat of course) with us. The theater had a doorman and as we walked by he wished us Merry Christmas and asked if we'd like to sneak in and see the movie. He said we could take the dog if we sat in the mostly empty balcony. We'd have gotten away with it too if our dog hadn't taken an instant dislike to Yul Brenner. Every damned time he appeared on the screen Schon sat up and growled like the Huns were coming over the hill. We eventually had to leave. It was years before I knew how that movie turned out! (I like the series a lot btw)
