Mike North

When Mike North was a kid, he had an early morning paper route. While it was still dark, he would sit on the steps of an apartment building and under a dim light read the comics and look at the ads for movies. At the movie house on main street, North saw Cool Hand Luke, Dr. Strangelove, Midnight Cowboy, Romeo and Juliet and Yellow Submarine — many good movies! On Friday night, North stayed up late and after the ten o´clock news, watched old black and white films. On Saturday night, he watched Creature Feature. Eventually, the newspaper took the route away from him because he could never pay for the papers, having spent most of the money he collected on candy.
