I’ve been messing around in Paint this afternoon – first I took images of Paris Jim Morrison (left) and Rush Limbaugh to see if I could make features line up. No go. I am no crack PhotoShopper, but the eyes and lips did not match between Paris Jim and Rush. Rush Limbaugh is, as far as I can tell, Rush Limbaugh.
I don’t know who Paris Jim is, then. But in this saga, conversations with Tyrone in the comments below, we don’t really know who Doors Jim is either. Here is a famous photo of “Jim Morrison” and his dad, Rear Admiral George Stephen Morrison, USN.
It is just a profile, but that nerdy kid does not look at all like Jim either! Best bet so far, and only my opinion, is that the guy we knew of as Jim Morrison of the Doors was a man who auditioned for the part and was selected because of his incredible charisma and good looks. He might have been military, but generally people that good looking have doors opening everywhere so that military service is not considered a needed option. The man we knew as Jim might have come from a photo portfolio in an talent office in Hollywood. He was that good looking.
Back to the composite photo: I chose two photos where the subjects were looking directly at the camera. I measured the distance between the pupils at one inch so that the eyes would be a match. (It was a tad difficult because, as you notice, Paris Jim is winking.) I then cropped half of Doors Jim’s face and lined up the tip of the noses precisely.
As you can see, Doors Jim has higher eyes than Paris Jim, and his upper lip is closer to his nose. These are, in my humble opinion, two different people. (The chins line up perfectly!)
What happened to Doors Jim? I assume they “moved” him to seclusion somewhere to get him out of the public eye so that they could pull a body switch. They put the body double in Paris to get him out of American eyes and awareness. The death was, of course, fake.
Doors Jim went out of sight, possibly to Santa Catarina, Brazil. As Tyrone mentioned, the place has a mostly European population, a vibrant economy, and plastic surgeons.
I will speculate one step further: When Pamela Courson “died” two years later, she joined Jim in his new digs, and the two, who were deeply in love. became a couple again. I wish them long and happy lives. I hope that Paris Jim got it all together and move forward. Nice, scam, hats off to all of you.
