The Paper Chase
I enjoyed watching this TV series "The Paper Chase" during my secondary school days & would faithfully tune in on those afternoons it was aired. For those who have no idea what this TV series is about - "The Paper Chase" tells the story of Hart, a first-year law student at Harvard, and his experiences with Professor Charles Kingsfield (played by John Houseman, in an Oscar-winning performance), the brilliant, demanding Contracts instructor whom he both idolizes and finds incredibly intimidating. In the show, Professor Kingsfield has this famous line: "You teach yourselves the law. I train your minds. You come in here with a skull full of mush, and if you survive, you’ll leave thinking like a lawyer." For some reason at that time, I found this quite amusing (probably it was the way John Houseman delivered the lines or how my brother tried to imitate him) & would giggle everytime he said that.
I don't know if my third brother remembers this but look what he did -
He cut this picture of a man (from the newspapers) who happened to resemble Professor Kingsfield, wrote the Professor's famous line next to this guy's picture & gave it to me! I like it so much that I kept it till today. brother, it was fun!
