The hosts of the Cinephile Hissy Fit podcast, sponsored and supported by the Ruminations Radio Network, have enjoyed their recent extended research into the resume of Harrison Ford outside of his big-name hits. He rarely, if ever, worked for bums or on fluff projects. The movies themselves might not always click, but the legendary lead actor was often not the problem. He’ll always be high on our lists (if not occupy the top spot) of our favorite stars.

For their 125th episode, two amnesiac film critics, two ignorant dads, and two redemptive teachers, Will Johnson and Don Shanahan, continue to dive into the older and lesser-seen films of Harrison Ford. Last week, it was Hanover Street. This week, the boys jump up a decade and change to 1991’s Regarding Henry written by a young J.J. Abrams and directed by Ford’s Working Girl director Mike Nichols. This is a cuddlier part for the typical rough and gruff Ford. Listen to hear what our guys thought. Come for the shared challenge and stay for the mutual love and respect for the fun movies encapsulate. Enjoy our podcast!
