Harrison Ford (born July 13, 1942) is
an American film actor and producer. In 1964, Ford traveled to
Los Angeles, California to apply for a job in radio voice-overs.
He did not get it, but stayed in California and eventually
signed a $150 a week contract with Columbia Pictures' New Talent
program, playing bit roles in films. His first known part was an
uncredited role as a bellhop in Dead Heat on a Merry-Go-Round
(1966). There is little record of his non-speaking roles (or
"extra" work) in film. Ford was at the bottom of the hiring
list, having offended producer Jerry Tokovsky after he played a
bellboy in the feature. He was told by Tokovsky that when actor
Tony Curtis delivered a bag of groceries, he did it like a movie
star; Ford felt his job was to act like a bellboy. Ford managed
to secure other roles in movies, such as A Time for Killing (The
Long Ride Home), starring Glenn Ford, George Hamilton and Inger
Stevens. He is famous for his performances as Han Solo
in the original Star Wars trilogy and the title character
of the Indiana Jones film series. Ford is also known for
his roles as Rick Deckard in Blade Runner, John Book in Witness
and Jack Ryan in Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger. His
career has spanned six decades and includes roles in several
Hollywood blockbusters, including Presumed Innocent, The
Fugitive, Air Force One, and What Lies Beneath. At one point,
