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, four of the top six box-office hits
of all time included one of his roles.
