River and Harrison Ford

Cast:
  • River Phoenix - Charlie Fox
  • Harrison Ford - Allie Fox
  • Helen Mirren - Mother Fox
  • Conrad Roberts - Mr. Haddy
  • Martha Plimpton - Emily Spellgood
  • Andre Gregory - Reverand Spellgood
  • Jadrien Steele - Jerry Fox


This is the movie which confirmed River's friendship with Martha Plimpton, and developed it into more. River also became close with Harrison Ford, saying that he was very down-to-earth, he would later act as a younger version of Ford in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
The director orginally turned down River Phoenix three times before selecting him as Charlie Fox, believing him to be too old and wishing to go with River's Stand By Me co-star Wil Wheaton.

For River Phoenix, R.I.P brother.
