Phil Alden Robinson, the director of the hit movie "Field of Dreams," has finally returned those two library books he took out at Union College in Schenectady, N.Y., more than two decades ago.While giving the commencement speech at the school's graduation Sunday, Robinson gave Union President Roger Hull the books he neglected to return in June 1970 - plus the fine.
"At 10 cents a day, it comes to $1,900," he said. "Perhaps (Hull) will accept these very expensive little volumes as a contribution to the new library."
Robinson, who graduated in 1971, also told some 650 graduates to satisfy their own dreams as they head out into the world.
"Now, it's finally your turn," he said. "Take the wheel, set your own course, bust out of here, do it your own way."
