In 1975, I was 11 years old. “Escape To Witch Mountain” played to a packed house at a now-defunct old theatre called, Miracle. People were sitting on the floor because they sold more tickets than they had seats. I’d never seen anything like that before. My dad and step mom took me to the movie and we got the last of the few remaining seats. They probably only took me because it was a Disney flick. Had to be harmless, right? Hardly. Afterward, they were puzzled by the seemingly surprising UFO angle. I remember being absolutely transfixed. I’m still fascinated with mysterious stuff like UFOs and ghosts. I wasn’t supposed to like that stuff but this film made it impossible for me not to. And I identified with the kid heroes on a deeper level as well. I, myself, was kind of a ragamuffin misfit kid from a broken home who spent weekends with my dad’s new blended family. I felt the siblings’ pain at being torn from their home. Tia broke my heart. She was as fragile as me, but far stronger when it really counted. Tony was just hot! Older and very cute at 13. And those powers they had? How cool was that? By the time the credits rolled, I knew I’d seen the best movie ever! I was lucky enough to have an older cousin who loved movies and hanging out with me and she bought the Disney movie record for me. I don’t know if any of you remember these; Disney used to release LPs of the audio track of some of their movies, usually truncated and featuring narration. In the case of “Escape”, it was narrated by Eddie Albert. This thing enabled me to memorize every line of Tony and Tia’s dialog and much of that of the other characters, too. I still have it, though the sleeve is long lost. It’s tough for me to watch the movie without speaking along with the characters (especially Tia), at least in my head.
