Some words and images that tell the popular story of O.J. Simpson, the killer, can be pursued as real evidence by way of their resemblance to characters, themes, scenarios, dialogue, sets, props and costumes from the movies. Fuhrman Timeline

McClinton Look-alike: Without the beard that Michael "Spencer" McClinton wore as the star witness against O.J. in Las Vegas, there is little resemblance to actor Avery Brooks, a.k.a. Capt. Sisco in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Hawk in Spencer: For Hire. With the beard, the resemblance is uncanny. There is more to McClinton and actors he emulated in different roles and different ways than that, much more... Spencer for Starters Odyssey of the Gun
Goldie and the Boxer with O.J. Simpson as Joe, the boxer, and Melissa Michaelsen as Goldie Kellogg is loaded with recurring themes and symbolism in movies closely related to Mark Fuhrman's interest in O.J. It has railroad tracks and a train, a racist boxer named "Billy," a bear, a sequence of events involving water on the ground and a woman in a red dress. It has actors who mean more than they appear to mean just by looking at them. One of these performers (Fran Ryan) has such a small part in Goldie and the Boxer that you might miss her. But in Chances Are ('89) you won't be able to miss her. Her character at a fundraiser to honor the First Ladies of the White House takes you to diamond earrings on a mannequin of assassinated Pres. Kennedy's widow Jackie.
Mark Fuhrman's Murder in Greenwich (November, 2002)
The scene with the mannequins in red dresses behind a Bell Haven store window is a solid link to many of the movies in The Smoking Gun series. When you factor in Fuhrman's A Simple Act of Murder book and the Oliver Stone JFK movie you get to what is probably the core of why so many red dresses appear in the contexts they do in all of those movies. Red dresses alone are not enough to make a Fuhrman connection to Murder in Greenwich. To mean anything they have to appear in a short sequence that includes a majority of the elements leading up to and included in the scene with the mannequins behind the picture window. Oliver Stone's JFK has more than its share of these elements in numbers, sequence and specificity, including the head of a mannequin, a wig and a mirror.
One captured frame from Murder in Greenwich that speaks volumes is from the Martha Moxley funeral scene. As it was in Oliver Stone's JFK you see the closed casket of the murder victim. However, the actor with white hair is not identified and the actors seated behind him or the names of their characters fit right in with Tommy Lee Jones as Clay Shaw of New Orleans in JFK. The actor seated behind him as Rushton Skakel is Peter Rowley, Tommy Lee Jones' lawyer in Nate and Hayes. Over the white-haired man's left shoulder is the actress playing Julia Skakel. In The Pelican Brief, Julia Roberts is a New Orleans law student named Darby Shaw. Seated behind Ruston and Julia are brothers Michael and Tommy. The actor playing Michael is Jon Foster. It's a very short reach from there to brother's John Foster and Allen Dulles. To underscore the Dulles brothers' connection to that scene you hear Martha Moxley's voiceover saying that Mrs. Foster, the woman sitting in front of of the white-haired man, introduced the Skakels to the Moxleys. The real name of the woman Furman calls "Mrs. Foster" in the movie is Ix.
The last clear face in the frame is a character Fuhrman calls Paul Joyce in the movie The real name is Geoffrey Byrne. The JFK connection there is actor Gabriel Byrne. He stars in a 1982 British/Canadian movie called Joyce in June with Stephen Rea as Stanislous Joyce. He is the voice of Sir Lionel in Quest for Camelot. He is Uther Pendragon, the father of King Arthur in Excalibur with Helen Mirren as Morgana. And if the title of Fuhrman's book on the JFK assassination, A Simple Act of Murder, has a familiar ring it might have something to do with Gabriel Byrne's role as John in the 1994 movie A Simple Twist of Fate. The Lincoln that Tommy Skakel drives in Fuhrman's movie is a subtle allusion to the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.
Oliver Stone's JFK ('91)
A diorama of the JFK assassination scene shows the two female figures in red. A flashback showing JFK's casket is in the courtroom scene with Tommy Lee Jones as the white-haired Clay Shaw, a.k.a. Clay Bertrand. Shaw was the former OSS agent during President Franklin D. Roosevelt's conduct of WW II that New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison prosecuted for conspiracy in the JFK assassination. Under Truman the OSS became the CIA. When Eisenhower was elected President in 1952 he appointed Allen Dulles as the CIA Director. JFK fired him in 1961. Allen Dulles' brother John Foster Dulles was Eisenhower's Secretary of State. The name "Foster" comes from the Dulles brothers' grandfather, President Benjamin Harrison's Secretary of State John W. Foster.
Tommy Lee Jones starred in other movies that are linked in one way or another to Mark Fuhrman: Eyes of Laura Mars, Cobb, Batman Forever, The Fugitive, Gotham, The Package and Nate and Hayes with Peter Rowley. A fresh look at The Package ('89) will give you a fresh insight on Oliver Stone's JFK as well as the evidence associated with Fuhrman in Brentwood.

Both versions of the CMH are inverted pentagrams featuring the Roman goddess Minerva. Minerva (Athena in Greek, who carries the goddess of victory Nike in her palm) is also featured on the State Seal of California and the California Highway Patrol.
Movie links to to Mark Fuhrman and the Congressional Medal of Honor include:
1) Sergeant York ('41) with Gary Cooper in the title role wears a Smokey the Bear hat for part of the movie. The real Alvin York won his CMH in France in WW I with the Army's 82nd "All American" Division. That's what the white AA in the current red, white and blue 82nd unit patch stands for, All American. A .33˘ postage stamp honoring Sergeant Alvin York and bearing the All American Division insignia was issued by the Post Office in 2000. The 82nd became the Army's first Airborne division in Word War II and parachuted into France along with the Army's 101 Airborne Division in advance of the Allied invasion of Normandy. The 82nd Airborne Division's movie theater in Fort Bragg, North Carolina is named after Alvin C. York.
2) Twelve O'clock High ('49) stars Gregory Peck a the leader of an American bomber group in WW II Europe who cracks up when the bombers piloted by two of the men in his group he has great admiration for are blown out of the sky in a bombing mission over Germany. One of them is a pilot named Joe Cobb played by John Kellogg. Another is a Medal of Honor winner named Jesse Bishop played by Bob Patton. Dean Jagger is a former WW I pilot who is too old to fly in WW II. Jagger died on Fuhrman's birthday February 5, 1991. Gregory Peck attended the same Catholic military academy in Los Angeles that Fuhrman attended. In the movie, all of the pilots wear the same style of jacket that Fuhrman wears in his first interview with Dianne Sawyer and his character wears in Murder in Greenwich. Among Peck's many roles were two amnesia victims and Abraham Lincoln. In The Omen with David Werner and Lee Remick he learns that his secretly adopted son is the son of the Satan with a 666 birthmark on his scalp.
3) To Hell and Back ('55) with WW II CMH winner Audie Murphy as himself. He won the medal as a 3rd Army infantryman in Europe. Murphy killed over 250 German soldiers. His co-star for the movie, Jack Kelly, appeared as Lt. Farman in Forbidden Planet ('56) with Leslie Nielsen, Warren Stevens and Anne Frances. Audie Murphy died in a plane crash in 1972.
4) They Came to Cordura ('59) again puts Gary Cooper in a Smokey the Bear hat. This time he is a disgraced 1916 U.S. Army Cavalry officer who risks everything to see to it that five troopers who distinguished themselves in battle receive the Congressional Medal of Honor. The movie begins with an Army officer, an Army private and a man wearing the garb of a bi-plane pilot converging on a coffee table in a desert. You see only a glimpse of the airplane and the pilot is not identified. The officer is Gary Cooper. The private is Michael Callan. His birthday is November 22.
* Sergeant Rutledge ('60) is not technically a Medal of Honor link in that no one in the movie wins one. However it is noteworthy because of the actor playing a 10th Cavalry Regiment corporal named Krump who says that Rutledge will get one. The actor is Rafer Johnson The winner of the decathlon gold medal in the 1960 Summer Olympics (see A Tale of Two Coins).
5) The Manchurian Candidate ('62) shows the Congressional Medal of Honor around the neck of Laurence Harvey as Sergeant Raymond Shaw for the first time as he exits an airplane. Shaw is the victim of an elaborate plot in which his Army patrol was ambushed by a Russian helicopter commando team in Korea and flown to Manchuria. There his entire patrol is brainwashed to believe that Shaw performed heroic acts to win him the medal so he could act as an assassin. To test his brainwashing control mechanism he is ordered to commit a murder, which results in a double homicide. One of his victims is his wife. Frank Sinatra as Captain Marco recommends him for the medal but has recurring nightmares that cause him to believe that his his memory of the events that led to his recommendation were artificially embedded in his mind. The Queen of Diamonds is one of the triggers that turns Raymond into an assassin with no memory of what he did.
6) Baa Baa Black Sheep (TV/'76) was best summed up in this partial IMDb review: "Thrilling WWII Action with Flying Leathernecks, 2 February 2001.... Author: Troll-19 .... 'Baa Baa Black Sheep or Black Sheep Squadron is an exciting TV series about Pappy Boyington's VMF 214, a USMC fighter squadron of WWII vintage. The characters are likeable and Robert Conrad really fills the bill as Gregory "Pappy" Boyington, Medal of Honor winner and multiple ace in the Pacific. The aerial sequences are outstanding and the use of combat footage is skillful...'" Boyington was a native of northern Idaho, about 40 miles southwest of Fuhrman's adopted home in Sandpoint. On one of Fuhrman's 2006 radio programs he talked to Robert Conrad about Boyington and a campaign to rename the airport near the town where he was born after him.
7) The Ninth Configuration ('80) has Stacy Keach as an amnesic Marine colonel (silver eagle insignia of rank) named Kane who thinks he's a psychiatrist and Scott Wilson as a Marine pilot in the astronaut program who faked a mental breakdown to get out of going to the moon. Most of the movie takes place in a remote castle, which has been transformed into an experimental asylum for select combat mental casualties of the Vietnam War. Wilson's character is the only one who was not in combat. He manipulates everyone around him, especially a Medal of Honor winner played by Jason Miller. Miller's character makes a direct reference to Gregory Peck's character in Spellbound with Ingrid Bergman and Leo G. Carroll. The asylum is run by Marines with Marine M.P.s guarding the the gate but many of the patients are Air Force pilots. Tom Akin is a Marine gunnery sergeant staffer.
8) Murder Me, Murder You ('83) is the pilot episode of the Mike Hammer television series with Stacy Keach in the title role and Charlie's Angel Tonya Roberts as his secretary Velda. In this TV movie Mike Hammer is an Army veteran who fought with the 1st Air Cav in Vietnam. His first paying client is a Marine Corps Medal of Honor winner who also fought in Vietnam and later made a fortune building military helicopters and selling them to the highest bidder. Tom Akins is the Medal of Honor winner. Later in the series Mike becomes an ex-Marine who served with the 3rd (Triad) Division in Vietnam.
9) Heartbreak Ridge (’86) stars Clint Eastwood as Gunnery Sergeant Tom Highway. He won his Medal of Honor as an Army infantryman in Korea. He fought as a Marine in Vietnam. As a Marine Corps Recon platoon sergeant he is Airborne qualified and leads his men in combat in Grenada. In Murder in Brentwood Fuhrman cites Clint Eastwood’s San Francisco cop charter Dirty Harry as part of a composite character the Fuhrman said he played to impress movie producers. He said he did it to help sell his screenplay project with Laura Hart (later Laura Hart McKinny). A scene from Dirty Harry ('71) shows Eastwood with a road sign pointing to Larkspur. The red flower in the Mothers poem photo above is a larkspur. Larkspur California is north of the Golden Gate Bridge on Highway 101. In a scene where a wall displays war photos and military patches you can see the very large, distinctive patch of of the Army's 1st Air Cav.
10) The Presidio ('88) features Sean Connery as a Provost Marshal (Military Police) on the Presidio Army Base. The Presidio sits on the northern tip of San Francisco where highway 101 turns into the Golden Gate Bridge. Connery's character, Lt. Col. Caldwell, wears the combat patch of the 101st Airborne Division. (Screaming Eagle). When an MP on Caldwell's post is shot to death in a diamond smuggling scheme that goes wrong a Lincoln involved in the shooting crosses into San Francisco. The getaway car injures two cops And brings San Francisco Homicide detective Jay Austin into the case. Austin is a former Presidio MP, like Mark Fuhrman. Mark Harman is Austin. Caldwell (military) and Austen (civilian) must work together to solve the case. They learn to their dismay that a key player in the diamond smuggling ring is an Army master sergeant they both admire and a Congressional Medal of Honor winner. He won his medal in Vietnam with the 101Airborne Division. His right shoulder patch in a photo showing President Johnson placing the medal around his neck as a sergeant E-5 shows that his previous unit was the 1st Air Cavalry Division. Jack Warden, who plays the master sergeant, served in the Navy before WWII and joined the Army during the war as a paratrooper with the 101st.
11) The Rock ('96) stars Sean Connery as a British Military Intelligence agent falsely imprisoned in the States for diplomatic reasons and Ed Harris as Brig. Gen. Hummel, a legendary combat commander who won the Medal of Honor in Vietnam. The gold parachute with wings on Hummel's uniform signifies his graduation from elite U.S.M.C. Recon school. The Rock was important enough to Mark Fuhrman for him to include it in his Murder in Brentwood Index — "The Rock, 304." Page 304: "One of the hunters on the trip was an actor named Marshall Teague, who recently played one of the bad guys in The Rock. Jeff and I buddied around with Marshall and his girlfriend Lindy and became friends with both of them. Marshall still calls to check up on me, and last year I put ivory handles on a knife that was very special to him." Martial Teague's role was written out of the final version of the screenplay that pits renegade Marines against Navy SEALs in a desperate Hummel operation to force the government to honor its obligations to the families of Marines who were killed in covert service to the United States.
12) The Manchurian Candidate (2004) is an updated version of the '62 classic. Liev Schreiber is Raymond Shaw. His brother Pablo (the title character in the 2006 movie Jimmy Blue) is Pvt. Ingram, a member of the captured patrol who is shot in the head during captivity by a brainwashed Capt. Marco. Their captors work for a giant corporation called Manchurian Global Industries and all of the members of the patrol are brainwashed into believing that Shaw earned the medal. Denzel Washington is Capt. Marco. He is a career Army officer who wears a Special Forces shoulder patch, Airborne and Ranger shoulder tabs, a combat parachutist badge, a pathfinder badge, a Combat Infantry badge and a chest full of ribbons. He recommends Shaw for the Medal of Honor. In the end, Shaw gives the medal to Marco -- and both of them earn it.
One way or another there is an aviation reference in every Congressional Medal of Honor movie link to Mark Fuhrman. Even Sergeant Rutledge, a movie set in 1883 Arizona, has one. Sergeant Rutledge's first name is Braxton. Fort Bragg, the home of the 82nd Airborne Division was named after Confederate General Braxton Bragg. The Manual For Courts Martial used in the movie is a Confederate manual adopted without change from the U.S. Army manual.
In Vietnam Fuhrman served aboard the Navy's USS. New Orleans, a ship that carried squadrons of helicopters suited for airborne combat operations involving Marine Recon units and Navy SEALS. There are also satanic links and witchcraft links to the inverted pentagram ...but that's a whole new layer of movie references to Fuhrman's "imagination."
