I was thinking, about that: What if Harrison was O.J.? Would we love the movies that much, like we do now? I mean if the movies would be just the same, just that this "Murderer Case" happened to Mr Ford. I for myself think I would not like the movies at all. Think about real life an it's connection to movie rolls. I mean, Harrison rescues children with his heli.
Once again, thank you Canyon; you always seem to put things very nicely. And Harrison Ford isn't the type of man who would murder people; it would attract too much attention to his life, and as we all know, Ford is a very private man.
[b]Well, despite what everyone believes, O.J was found not guilty, so justice was invariably served.
Alas I think he is guilty. I think like the song says: "did you know if you were famous you could kill your wife and there is no such thing as twenty-five to life as long as youve got the cash to pay for cochran." by good charlotte. I think he paid enough money that he got out of it!!!!
Maybe I chose the wrong words for my thought. Lets just put it that way:
If Harrison Ford got cought in a really big media hype, and he looses his reputation as a nice and decent man. Could you still see the movies without prejudice? Could you enjoy the movie the same, or would you think about the "case" while watching the movie?
I really think, that is not a stupid thought, but that's just me.
Not a stupid thought...but an unpleasant one. Most people here are big big Harrison Ford fans. They believe he's a hero or idol to them. I personally see Harrison Ford as the father I never had but always wanted. So to say something like this is just unpleasant and most people won't wish to comment or do just the opposite and ridicule you for saying such things. My suggestion to you would be to take your question and post it somewhere on a general board that is not loaded with people that would rather not think of it.
For example...I would not go to the NY Yankee's homepage, join there Forum and then say...what if the team died in a plain crash and then they moved the organization to Florida.
Ya see how that can be a bit harsh in the wrong forum?
And I promise you...saying that in that forum will bestow upon you a much more colorful response than what you've seen here.
Let's just put it this way: Even though Michael Jackson is a VERY odd person, I still enjoy listening to SOME of his songs. Notice that the word "SOME" is capitalized, which means only 3 or 4 of his songs.

The problem is the public has too much access to celebrities's public lives. I still love the films by Roman Polanski, despite the fact he had sex with a 13-year-old girl in the 70's. As for O.J., I feel no differently seeing his work in NAKED GUN and laughing at it...one must not confuse the artist with their private lives. Should we detest Norman Mailer? But then there is Elia Kazan, who sold out his friends by naming names of people in Hollywood so that he could have a career. He is a great director but I loathe what he did.
I think Ford is a nice, sincere man judging from his People magazine interview, but he did show a meaner side of himself in WHAT LIES BENEATH and MOSQUITO COAST. That doesn't mean he would act the same way in real life but, like everyone else, the dark side is always there.
I double and triple blast you!!!!! I still don't get the pointof that question. Actually I find it very vexing that anyone would ever use Harrison's name. And OJs name in the same sentence. God forbid even the thought of comparing them.!!
