Furman Grad, Sociology major but it was little tougher than Auburn football players had Had three dates with beautiful women the summer of 1978. Did not marry any of em. Never married anybody cause what was available was undesirable and what was desirable was unaffordable. Unlucky in love as they say and even still it is sometimes heartbreaking.

Collinsville's Brett Morgen and OJ Siimpson

I Say Collinsville's because I was local consultant for Morgen's first film, Blessings of Liberty, shown on Statewide Public Television.
I could easily say Robert Redford's or Oscar's Brett Morgen because he later became big at Sundance and was nominated for an Oscar.
June 17th, 1994 will be shown Weds, 16 June at 10 pm on Espn's 30 for Thirty. It will be shown again three days later at Noon, Saturday on ESPN

Be sure and tune in.

From what I can gather at the ESPN site, the film is more about how that day imprinted itself on the nation's public memory; an exercise in the exploration of iconography more than an attempt to redo the trial or to exonerate Simpson.

Will be interesting to see the film, and with everyone else review the public discussion of the film.
