Boyhood Dreams

Last night while watching B00005JLSB, I was reminiscing about boyhood dreams. More specifically about how movies when we were kids affected those dreams. I remembered things like watching 0800179501 and wanting to learn karate or watching B00000ILFQ and wanting to learn how to skateboard and other such flash in the pan ideas. These ideas never lasted more than a few days or maybe a couple of weeks, but each time a new movie started, so did a new dream. Over time, there was some money spent on this fleeting dreams, one karate lesson, a skateboard bought in Florida, and probably lots of other money spent in small doses in things that were tossed to the side as quickly as they became an interest.

Well, as I was watching this movie, I thought, what would have happened had THIS movie come out while I was a kid? The main character is only a kid himself, 16, when he begins his little crime spree. Could this movie have inspired lots of people to go and try counterfeiting and bank fraud? Obviously with today's computer networks connecting banks together, these scams would be a lot harder to pull off than they were in the 60s, but still, it would have been yet another idea that ran through my head and seemed like a good idea, at least for a few minutes.
