>PINOCCHIO This is the first movie I ever saw in a theater. I was 5. It nearly put me off movies for good due to nightmares about Geppetto, Pinocchio's creator, being gobbled by a whale. Now that I'm older and less impressionable, I more fully appreciate the beauty and comic gusto of Disney's 1940 animated classic (on DVD March 10) about the truth-stretching puppet and his debonair insect pal Jiminy Cricket. But the whale scene still scares me!
