Sometimes, even the best in Hollywood get it incorrect. Tommy Lee Jones stars in The Fugitive, probably the greatest thriller motion pictures ever, and through manufacturing, he was emphatically towards what’s now the movie’s most memorable line.
Jeb Stuart, screenwriter on The Fugitive, advised all to Rolling Stone. “Tommy didn’t need to say ‘I don’t care’. However he wanted to inform the viewers he doesn’t care if the man’s harmless or responsible,” Stuart explains, earlier than outlining the state of affairs behind the scenes on the motion film.
“It was freezing chilly. The water’s operating by. Harrison had been such a trooper. He’s standing there on this opening, which has a bounce of about 4 toes, to a mattress. We’re all freezing. And Tommy retains saying, ‘No, I don’t like that line. It doesn’t work’.” This prompted variations in several takes of the drama film, however nothing appeared to suit.
“He saved attempting others. And so after some time I simply stated, ‘Why don’t you simply strive, ‘I don’t care?” And as soon as he did it, Andy Davis stated, ‘That’s it. Wrap’,” Stuart finishes. A large piece of cinematic historical past was captured.
We’d like to see the alternate takes Jones offered, even simply to see what he was going for. The Fugitive is unquestionably probably the greatest motion pictures of his profession, so he’s most likely OK with how this all occurred. Within the movie, he performs deputy US marshal Sam Gerard, who’s attempting to seize Harrison Ford’s Dr Richard Kimble, a person falsely accused of homicide.
On this climactic assembly, Richard’s cornered by Sam in a storm drain, proclaims his innocence, and will get ambivalence in return. That a lot got here up within the analysis Jones did.
“The deputy marshal I had been speaking to emphasised a few issues,” Jones says. “Certainly one of them was that the innocence or guilt of the individuals he was attempting to serve warrants on was not likely necessary to the method. He didn’t care if the individuals he was chasing have been responsible or not. It was his job to catch them. It was someone else’s job to resolve whether or not they have been responsible.”
