E.T. turns 30 years old – a movie that took the world by storm

i remember going on a date to go to the movie

and we were driven by my date’s mom

who also saw the movie with us

and we all cried

and cheered

and loved it

and saw it again the next week, minus the chaperone.

no one ever talks about henry thomas, the kid who played el-i-ot

erryone talks about Drew, who was pretty great too.

but this is his audition tape which you need to watch all the way through
