When I was a teenager my friend Patty and I wanted to see "Cape Fear" with Polly Bergen, which we heard was a
very SCARY movie.  It had already played at the better theaters and was at the Langley in Hampton.  We had heard
that the Langley had mice but we decided to be brave and go there anyway...I was sitting there wearing a pair
of Trotters (little flats that barely covered your feet) and a MOUSE ran across my feet!  I grabbed Patty and told
her...I do not think she believed me...but I sat on my feet for the rest of the movie because we did not want to leave! 
I was too startled to holler!  We never went back to the Langley!

I was blown away by Bill Lee's (Warwick HS - '54 - of NC) link to the B-western stars:

For a period of about five or six years, during and immediately after the war years, myself and a friend or two would faithfully ride
the trolley or city bus every Saturday morning from Buckroe and later from Southhampton to the Langley Theater in downtown Hampton
for a double feature western.  A day at the movies included two western features, a chapter of the latest serial, a cartoon and a comedy
short and a newsreel of our progress in the war.
