Is it just two genious entertainers or two weird dudes talking? That’s what it was always like when our boy Harrison Ford went on David Letterman. Now that Dave is sadly (yeah I cried on the last show) gone, it’s time to look back at some appearances Harrison made.
Letterman talks about Harrison’s early days as a contract actor (something we covered on episode 1 of GOMP) and learns Harrison doesn’t like talking about money. Really this should be titled, When Two Awkward Smart Dudes Talk:
After Harrison told a joke on Letterman, it became a running gag. When Harrison would go a Letterman, he would do a joke.
For this Harrison Ford movie, Sabrina, we get a unique opportunity to compare how Harrison plays a role that Humphrey Bogart played. Yep, Harrison does his first “rom-com” and you kind of wonder why he doesn’t do more comedy. There was some creepness happening in Sabrina due to the large age gap between Linus/Harrison Ford and Sabrina/Julia Ormond and we’re not quite sure Harrison was totally comfortable hitting on such a younger character. Plenty of breaking down of “Linus”.
OF NOTE!: We talk about the Disneyland ride, Indiana Jones Adventure – Temple of the Forbidden Eye. (It came out during this era of Harrison’s carrer so we review it here.
ALSO, OF NOTE!: Our Harrison ‘news and updates’ are going to be a little dated due to the fact we recorded this episode before we recorded our The Force Awakens trailer #2 episode. But that’s cool, you can hear how dumb we sound.
