Before the videocassette recorder there was the movie projector and screen. Perhaps you remember your fifth-grade teacher pulling down a screen--or dad hanging a sheet on the wall, ready to show visiting friends the enthralling account of your summer vacation at the shore. Just as the film got started, the projector bulb often blew out.
