Memories of an A.

I have IFC channel on and they were showing Jaws. I laugh as I type this because Undisclosed definitely could have stood in for Amity in the film.

When I was in College, I took a class in British authors which had three outstanding aspects to it. Number one was I met my buddy Kate, which means Kate and I go way back. Number two was the professor,Dr.Myers.She was British, the accent held my attention, and I was intrigued by the fact that she looked exactly like a female version of her brother, albeit thinner, who was the British actor, Robert Shaw.The third fact, led in by the previously mentioned second fact, was an easy A, because I adored the class.

So it goes without saying that for the past 34 years, every time I see the movie Jaws, I go back to that class and have only fond memories.

Oh yeah. The movie rocks too!

  1. I had her for my 2 years at CH and loved her. When I couldn’t make a trip to London she actually sent me a postcard! I smile every time I see Jaws or The Sting

  2. So did I. Listening to a late night BBC broadcast discussion from the UK of Jane Eyre brought back memories of that wonderful class and her expert teaching. Actually, she would be about my age now (a late bloomer, I returned to complete my B.A. In the 80’s). How I wish we could meet!

  3. Not sure that this is the same Mrs. Myers that I had at Chestnut Hill College. I never saw an “easy A”. She was a for real, demanding professor. She made college worth it. And yes, I too cannot watch Jaws without thinking of her.
