Friday Flicks: The Fugitive

One of my favorite Harrison Ford flicks, The Fugitive (1993) is non stop action. The story tells of Dr. Richard Kimble who was convicted of his wife's murder. He is innocent and becomes a fugitive on the run, tyring to find the real killer (the one-armed man).

Tommy Lee Jones is the Federal Marshall who is trying to track him down. It's the best man-hunt movie in Hollywood history.

The train crash scene is spectacular! If you have the DVD, you know from watching the special features how crazy it was to shoot that scene.

A great movie from a great old series! And part of the reason I like it is I have some crazy connections to this one - the movie takes place in Southern Illinois, where I hail from, and the train crash is supposed to be taking place just miles from my hometown, which is cool. That scene was actually shot in the mountains of North Carolina - which is where I live now - another neat point. And I have two good pals in the movie - Danny Roebuck is the guy on Tommy Lee's team with the mustache - he's been around for 25+ years, does guest spots on nearly every TV show - he lived here for three seasons of Matlock, and when an interview for Psychotronic Video magazine with Dan revealed we're both monster kids - meaning we love the Universal Studios and other old movie monsters - we became fast friends for the rest of the time he and his wife lived here. My other pal is Nick Searcy, who is currently Tim Olyphant's boss on Justified on F/X. In The Fugitive, he's the deputy who chides Tommy Lee "I'll be with you in a minute" after the crash. We met on the CBS series American Gothic almost 18 years ago - and we've been pals ever since. Fantastic movie choice, Luana!
