The Fugitive



The fugitive is Dr. Richard Kimble (vigorously played by Harrison Ford), unjustly accused of murdering his wife and on the run from the police while he searches for the one-armed man who actually did the deed. The Fugitive (1993, rated PG-13, 130 minutes) is a rip-roaring story with what I dare to claim is the most thrilling, scary, truly realistic train wreck sequence ever brought to the silver screen.

The Fugitive is a two-man show: an all-American guy aiming to prove his innocence and a passionless cop who’s trying to track him down. During the film, U.S. Deputy Marshall Sam Gerard (played by Tommy Lee Jones, he won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor) transforms himself from a relentlessly heartless good-guy to a good good-guy.

Perhaps you remember the top-rated mostly B&W television series “The Fugitive” (1963-1967) starring David Janssen. The 1993 movie is great proof that you can tell a really good story in less than 120 episodes.
