I just completed disk 3, of the 6 in the mini-series, “Taken” and was wondering if the characters in this movie can be supported with real events.
For example, Owen and Eric Crawford. Do you think they were real people? The only reason I ask is because Spielberg and Ronald Reagan had a pretty
good relationship. After all he did invite Spielberg to the Whitehouse to view ET. Not to mention this:
“Following the screening the President leaned over, clapped Spielberg on the shoulder, and quietly commented, "You know, there aren’t six people
in this room who know how true this really is." Unfortunately, the sudden press of people approaching Spielberg and the President prevented Spielberg
from pursuing the strange comment made by Reagan.” But do you think Reagan would have told Spielberg what was going on in detail, so that he could
later, when the time was right, make movie/documentary.
It does use one factual reference from Ronald Reagan famous speech,
“"I couldn’t help but - when you stop to think that we’re all God’s children, wherever we live in the world, I couldn’t help but say to him
(Gorbachev) just how easy his task and mine might be if suddenly there was a threat to this world from some other species from another planet outside
in the universe. We’d forget all the little local differences that we have between our countries and we would find out once and for all that we
really are all human beings here on this Earth together. Well I guess we can wait for some alien race to come down and threaten us, but I think that
between us we can bring about that realization."
It played on a TV in the kitchen but no one is paying any attention to it.
What do you think? Do you think any of the characters in this series are based on facts?
