1954
More than half of all US households own a television.

Young Steven spends a lot of time watching TV and devours series, cartoons and children’s programs of that time.

Even the TV set exerts a great fascination for him: On some occasions, he nearly sticks his face into the tv set and absorbs the white noise and hissing from other tv stations.

He will remember these childhood experiences when writing the screenplay for Poltergeist (1982).
