Sorry it took so long to get back to you but I guess that doesn't require much explanation. The movie you're taking about (10 to Midnight, I think) is not in any of my books -- but some of the actors are (Charles Bronson and Rob Lowe).
Fuhrman is a creep and a liar, but he is no moron. His biggest problems are his big mouth and his lack of imagination. That's where I've got him a hundred times over in the Fuhrman at the Movies chapter of Iago and in the two Smoking Guns. There is hardy anything associated with Mark Fuhrman in the Bundy murders that you can't find on film or television.
Just put up The Ninth Configuration. I hope you will read it. If you get a copy of the wide screen version of the movie I hope you watch it and tell me what you think. If you want a copy of the video, I will send it too you.
We both know that I.Q. is not the only guide to intelligence nor is it always the best. It is, however, a minority trait, which tells you something discriminating about Mark Fuhrman, the killer, and the chief architect of the fame-up. All three shared a rare combination of minority traits: If we are talking about three different people, here, all three of them wore the same minority shoe size. They all walked the same way that only one man in a hundred who -- wears size-12 shoes -- walks. They all had inside knowledge of how homicide detectives and prosecutors process specific kinds of information. AND all of them had unusually high I.Q.s. The crimes scenes themselves looked like I.Q. tests.
Like Fuhrman's shoe size and the way he walks, his I.Q. puts him in minority within a minority, within another minority of people who could have done the killing and the framing and become rich and famous as a result. I can tell by reading his book that he has an exceptionally high I.Q. It is a tremendous asset in terms of organizing a lot of chaotic information dumped on you at the same time. It's good for anticipating problems, separating relevant from irrelevant information and for solving complex puzzles (these are all things that Fuhrman does extremely well) but it has no necessary relationship to creativity. The movies linking Fuhrman to the crime scene, his notes, his mother, his unfortunate initials (MF) his favorite expletive, his favorite author and his association with Laura Hart McKinney but him in a class of his own; a minority of one. --Jasper
