Blast from the past: Harrison Ford -- really, that's him! -- talks about Sabrina

As I've said before, here and elsewhere: I realize my original rave review was (and remains) a minority report, but I was moved and amused by Sydney Pollack's 1995 remake of Sabrina. And in this November '95 interview, I'm not at all ashamed to say as much to Harrison Ford, who gave one of his most affecting and under-rated performances as the movie's male lead. (A role originally played, in Billy Wilder's original version, by Humphrey Bogart.) And before you ask: Yes, that really is Harrison Ford hiding behind that mustache. He grew it while preparing to play an Irish-American cop in The Devil's Own -- but, obviously, shaved it off before actually filming that Alan J. Pakula thriller with Brad Pitt.
