June 28: Harrison Ford was on MV to film Sabrina.

The winner of June’s “Do You Know?” contest was Penny Thrush, for her correct answer for June 28: Harrison Ford was here to film the remake of the movie “Sabrina,” which starred Julia Ormond and Greg Kinnear. Penny not only answered, but added a heart-warming story: “I wanted to add that I believe this was when he was on Island for the filming of Sabrina in 1995. Main Street, Vineyard Haven, was one of the filming locations, and I was able to get Harrison Ford to meet a young friend with cancer on Main Street, during an acting break.  We were all star-struck, as you can imagine!” When we asked for details, she went on, “The local nurse who had been hired by the film company to be on duty during their visit, was the one who arranged for Harrison to meet with us around midday.  Main Street had been cleared and closed for the shooting, with a few familiar faces working as extras. A handful of us assembled with our young friend in front of the little vendor mall on Main Street, and Harrison appeared, as scheduled. He spent a few moments talking with her, which was so special, but also appeared to remain in character for his movie role.  A great moment to remember!”
