The Doors

Question: Did Jim Morrison really go around falsely telling reporters that both his parents were dead? Or was that just an Oliver Stone embellishment?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: That is actually true. Morrison grew up in a military family and his stern parents harshly disciplined their two sons by verbally assaulting them until they broke down in tears, were utterly humiliated and admitted to wrong-doing. Morrison broke off almost all contact with his family after graduating from college.

Trivia: Val Kilmer (Jim Morrison) did virtually all of his own singing in the movie. The actual Doors were heard when it was set as background music, but during the concert and recording session scenes, that was all Kilmer himself.
