Witness 1985

A fantastic movie directed by Peter Weir,
starring Harrison Ford and Kelly McGillis.

A young Amish boy is sole witness to a murder; policeman John Book (Ford)
goes into hiding in Amish country to protect him until the trial.
Nominated for 8 Academy Awards including Best Actor for Harrison Ford. 
His only Oscar nomination to date.

Original Trailer for the film.

Harrison Ford delivers 'his way' of dealing with town folk bullying the Amish.
(Note a very young Viggo Mortensen in the back of the buggy - 
long before his Lord of the Ring days!)


  1. Soo hot! Particularly in Star Wars!

  2. Absolutely! And as Indy in Raiders & Temple of Doom.

  3. A fantastic movie, with an excellent sound track! Directed by Australian Peter Weir. ...mmm I thought Kelly McGillis was rather yummy!

  4. What about River Phoenix too! :)

  5. Michael - yes, the music is always so great in Peter Weir's films. Whenever I hear Sam Cooke's 'Wonderful World' I always think of that scene in Witness in the barn when he gets the car radio going and they dance.
    And Pippa - Yes! Loved River Phoenix.
    Damn you Viper Room!
