The motel scene


Bill and Emily Harris watch the shootout on their motel room TV.. anyone think this might be unreal since it detaches them from involvement with the SLA leaders? I guess it was the turning point that signaled the breakup of Hearst's kidnappers.

I'm not sure exactly what you mean by "unreal." As you may know, that's what happened in real life: Patty Hearst and the Harrises watched TV news coverage of the SLA seige. That's not too surprising, as it was live on most TV stations in the country.

I remember watching it myself. It just seems unusual since they were involved in the kidnapping to be watching it on TV like everyone who wasn't. I'm glad you told me, because I wasn't sure it ever happened. Loved the film.
