I love this picture so much.
This single still from Stand By Me embodies my childhood. It’s not quite literal, but when I saw it, it kind of felt like a light punch in the gut. I immediately knew what it was. I think “Everyday” by Buddy Holly is playing during this scene? I’ve seen the film at least a dozen times, if not more. I remember seeing the film on the screen at the Ranch View theater with my dad in Prairie Village, KS. I associate the film with him in a big way. It had a major impact on me at an obviously important time. I was 12 years old when it came out. Thanks for sharing, Wil.
