Questions: Do you stop to watch a favorite movie on over the air or cable TV when you are channel surfing? Do you own all these movies on VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray, and digital?
Yep. Me too.
And even this student of Dr. Henry Jones, Jr. missed a major announcement from CBS Entertainment. Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade will bookend May’s “Sunday Night at the Movies” on CBS.
