I turned 11 in October 1968. We were living in Houghton, Michigan,a small town in the Upper Peninsula. I was a sixth grader at Houghton High School. I remember going to see "The Yellow Submarine" at the local theatre for my birthday party. Another movie at the top of our hit list for that fall was "Planet of the Apes".
