    Favorite Old Timey Movie:

The instructor was impressed and I received an A.

  • Jack NyBlom

    Jack NyBlom

    Camera 3 Entertainment

    Favorite Movie:
    Jack believes people should not ask that question; it should be, “what is your favorite movie for each specific genre” since it’s nearly impossible to pick a single favorite. But if he had to choose, it’s a wonderful French film from the 1940s, Marcel Carne’s “Children of Paradise.”

    Favorite Director:
    Francois Truffaut

    Favorite pastime as a child:
    Being dropped off by his parents to see Saturday matinees, and later directing and acting out favorite movies with his siblings.

    Buttered Popcorn or Plain:
    Buttered if you are going to skip lunch or dinner, plain otherwise. But it has to be delicious plain.

    Movie line he often quotes these days:
    From Godfather 3: “They keep PULLING me back in!” As a kid it was from The Magnificent 7, which he would watch repeatedly on TV: “I deal in lead, friend.”

Tell your friends!
