Day 19 – The First Film You Saw In The Theater
The Apple Dumpling Gang (1975 D: Norman Tokar, W: Don Tait)
This one is pretty easy, since it’s factual. I don’t know that I’ve seen this film in 30+ years. Bill Bixby, Tim Conway, Don Knotts, Harry Morgan and Slim Pickens star. Director Norman Tokar also did childhood torture device Where The Red Fern Grows, Disney kids comedy The Boatniks with Phil Silver and Stefanie Powers, and, just before he passed away, The Cat From Outer Space with Ken Berry, Roddy McDowall and McLean Stevenson. I’m going to guess we saw this at the Sno-King Drive-In Theater in Lynnwood, Washington. Now enjoy Tim Conway lighting Don Knotts’ ass on fire.
