Johnathan Livingston Seagull. Who remembers this movie from the early 70’s? My mother and I took a photo trip to Atlantic City today and seagulls are in no short supply. Every time I see seagulls this name, Johnathan Livingston Seagull, pops into my head. I was about 8 when the movie came out and I try to remember the move but fail each time. One of these days I plan to watching it again.
