What a great studio. I called his assistant some years back wanting him to give a lecture at my university. He demanded 10 k or some such number. School wouldn't go for it. Crap.

He must have a thing for Imperials (not everyone is a car person, but that is what he was driving). I remember the 60's model Imperial in Blade Runner with the retro-fit fuel system on the roof.

A little off topic: why is Harrison Ford so weird about Blade Runner? He refuses to discuss any aspect of the film.
