Nobody asked, but here are a couple of the movies that changed my life:

The Out-of-Towners with Jack Lemmon. The first movie I ever saw at a drive-in with my parents. Scared me out of New York City for years.

Superman with Christopher Reeves. I believed a man could fly.

Serpico with Al Pacino. I saw a topless woman on screen for the first time.

Star Wars. I was lucky enough to be at the red carpet, New York City premiere. When that first battle cruiser went across the 70 mm screen, I never looked at mbies the same way again.

And then there was the first time I saw porno in a movie theater. I was working at the old Royal Park Theater 4 in Gainesville, Florida, and we showed Debbie Does Dallas at a 5 p.m. show. Good thing I saw that show; the police thereafter confiscated our print.

So that brings us to my guest today, Variety magazine senior editor Robert Hofler, who is author of a fun new book called Variety’s The Movie That Changed My Life.
