My two earliest memories are almost like a blueprint for my entire life.

In my mind, life began in 1981 at the Twin Drive-In in Wheeling, where my parents took their 2-year-old son for what would be the first of many viewings of "Raiders of the Lost Ark." I vividly remember watching the nefarious Nazis' faces melting through the windshield of the maroon Plymouth Duster that would serve us well until the floods of 1987. To this day, whenever I think of "Raiders" (which is often lately, given what comes to theaters May 22), I think of Toht's glasses dropping to the ground as his face drips away.
