  • Movies—stories of any kind, really—had messages; so I was always taught. Bible stories, fairy tales, movies—everything had a point, like a sermon. Travis had to learn to kill Old Yeller even though he loved him once Old Yeller got hydrophobia (which, along with quicksand and rattlesnakes, mainstays of my Western movie diet, were all things of which I was deathly afraid). No one who took me to the movies ever so much as acknowledged the possibility that it might be enough to be saddened by the respective fates of Old Yeller and Travis. I had to learn that for myself and it took an embarrassingly long time, as long as it took to learn that there are some stories from which we learn little or nothing, but that those stories are good stories, too.
