originally came from the tiny island of Puerto Rico and started my viewing journey on a 13-inch black and white TV. I saw The Searchers, Lawrencrence of Arabia, North by Northwest, Apocalypse Now, and The Exorcist on that diminutive contraption dubbed in Spanish. I still found these films moving, captivating, and sweeping. I have subsequently have had the opportunity to see them all on the large screen (all of the movies you've mentioned), and that is indeed impressive; it will always be. Great films transcend.
