Harrison Ford Combines Russian Jewish and Irish Catholic Ancestry
#1 Box Office Actor of All Time
Lost Ark - Witness - Star Wars - Navarone - Blade Runner
Harrison Ford is an American film
actor and producer. Harrison Ford is famous for his performances as
Han Solo in the original Star Wars trilogy and as the title
character of the Indiana Jones film series. Harrison 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. Five
of his films have been inducted into the National Film Registry.
In 1997, Harrison Ford was ranked No. 1 in Empire's "The Top 100
Movie Stars of All Time" list. As of July 2008, the United States
domestic box office grosses of Harrison Ford's films total over
US$3.5 billion, with worldwide grosses surpassing $6 billion, making
Harrison Ford the third highest grossing U.S. domestic box-office
star. Harrison Ford is the husband of actress Calista Flockhart.
Harrison Ford was born July 13, 1942, at Chicago, Illinois' Swedish
Covenant Hospital. His mother, Dorothy (née Dora Nidelman), was a
homemaker and former radio actress, and his father, Christopher
Harrison Ford (born John William Harrison Ford), was an advertising
executive and a former actor. A younger brother, Terence, was
born in 1945. Harrison Ford's paternal grandparents, John Fitzgerald
Harrison Ford and Florence Veronica Niehaus, were of Irish Catholic
and German descent, respectively. Harrison Ford's maternal
grandparents, Harry Nidelman and Anna Lifschutz, were
Jewish immigrants from Minsk,
Belarus (at that time a part of the Russian Empire). When asked
in which religion Harrison Ford and his brother were raised,
Harrison Ford has jokingly responded, "Democrat," "to be liberals
of every stripe". In a television interview shown in August 2000,
when asked about what influence his Irish Catholic and Russian
Jewish ancestry may have had on his life as a person and as an
artist, Harrison Ford humorously stated "As a man I've always felt
Irish, as an actor I've always
Harrison Ford was active in the Boy Scouts of America, and achieved
its second-highest rank, Life Scout. Harrison Ford worked at Napowan
Adventure Base Scout camp as a counselor for the Reptile Study merit
badge. Because of this, Harrison Ford and Eagle Scout director
Steven Spielberg later decided to depict the young Indiana Jones as
a Life Scout in the film Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. They
also jokingly reversed Harrison Ford's knowledge of reptiles into
Jones' fear of snakes.
In 1960, Harrison Ford graduated from Maine East High School in Park
Ridge, Illinois. His was the first student voice broadcast on his
high school's new radio station, WMTH, and Harrison Ford was its
first sportscaster during his senior year (1959–1960). Harrison Ford
attended Ripon College in Wisconsin, where Harrison Ford was a
member of the Sigma Nu fraternity. Harrison Ford took a drama class
in the final quarter of his senior year to get over his shyness.
Harrison Ford, a self-described "late bloomer,"
became fascinated with acting.
In 1964, Harrison Ford traveled to Los Angeles, California to apply
for a job in radio voice-overs. Harrison Ford 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. Harrison Ford was at
the bottom of the hiring list, having offended producer Jerry
Tokovsky after Harrison Ford played a bellboy in the feature.
Harrison Ford was told by Tokovsky that when actor Tony Curtis
delivered a bag of groceries, Harrison Ford did it like a movie
star; Harrison Ford felt his job was to act like a bellboy.
Harrison Ford managed to secure other roles in movies, such as A
Time for Killing (The Long Ride Home), starring Glenn Harrison Ford,
George Hamilton and Inger Stevens.
His speaking roles continued next with Luv (1967), though Harrison
Ford was still uncredited. Harrison Ford was finally credited as
"Harrison J. Harrison Ford" in the 1967 Western film, A Time for
Killing, but the "J" did not stand for anything, since Harrison Ford
has no middle name. It was added to avoid confusion with a silent
film actor named Harrison Ford, who appeared in more than 80 films
between 1915 and 1932, and died in 1957. Harrison Ford later said
that Harrison Ford was unaware of the existence of the earlier
Harrison Ford until Harrison Ford came upon a star with his own name
on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Harrison Ford soon dropped the "J"
and worked for Universal Studios, playing minor roles in many
television series throughout the late 1960s and early 1970s,
including Gunsmoke, Ironside, The Virginian, The F.B.I., Love,
American Style, and Kung Fu. Harrison Ford appeared in the western
Journey to Shiloh (1968) and had an uncredited, non-speaking role in
Michelangelo Antonioni's 1970 film Zabriskie Point, as an arrested
student protester. Not happy with the roles being offered to him,
Harrison Ford became a self-taught professional carpenter to
support his then-wife and two small sons. While working as a
carpenter, Harrison Ford became a stagehand for the popular rock
band The Doors. Harrison Ford also built a sun deck for actress
Sally Kellerman and a recording studio for Brazilian band leader
Harrison Ford was then hired to build cabinets at the home of
director George Lucas, who subsequently cast him in a pivotal
supporting role for his film American Graffiti (1973). Harrison
Ford's relationship with Lucas affected his career later on. After
director Francis Harrison Ford Coppola's film The Godfather was a
success, Harrison Ford hired Harrison Ford to expand his office and
gave him small roles in his next two films, The Conversation (1974)
and Apocalypse Now (1979); in the latter film Harrison Ford played a
smarmy officer named "G. Lucas."
Harrison Ford's carpentry work eventually landed him his first
starring film role. In 1975, George Lucas hired him to read lines
for actors auditioning for parts in his Star Wars (1977). Lucas was
eventually won over by Harrison Ford's portrayal, and cast him as
Han Solo. Star Wars became one of the most successful movies of
all time worldwide, and established Harrison Ford as a superstar.
Harrison Ford went on to star in the similarly-successful Star Wars
sequels, The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Return of the Jedi
(1983), as well as The Star Wars Holiday Special (1978). Harrison
Ford wanted Lucas to kill off Han Solo at the end of either sequel,
saying, "That would have given the whole film a bottom," but Lucas
Harrison Ford's status as a leading actor was solidified when
Harrison Ford starred as Indiana Jones in the George Lucas/Steven
Spielberg collaboration Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981). Though
Spielberg was interested in casting Harrison Ford in the lead role
from the start, Lucas was not, due to having already worked with the
actor in American Graffiti and Star Wars, but Harrison Ford
eventually relented after Tom Selleck was unable to accept.
Harrison Ford reprised the role for the prequel Indiana Jones and
the Temple of Doom (1984) and the sequel Indiana Jones and the Last
Crusade (1989). Harrison Ford later returned to his role as
Indiana Jones again for a 1993 episode of the television series The
Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, and for the fourth film, Indiana
Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008).
Other film work
Harrison Ford has been in numerous other films, including Heroes
(1977), Force 10 from Navarone (1978), and Hanover Street (1979).
Harrison Ford also co-starred alongside Gene Wilder in the
buddy-Western The Frisco Kid (1979), playing a bank robber with a
heart of gold. Harrison Ford then starred as Rick Deckard in Ridley
Scott's cult sci-fi classic Blade Runner (1982), and in a number of
dramatic-action films: Peter Weir's Witness (1985) and The Mosquito
Coast (1986), and Roman Polanski's Frantic (1988).
The 1990s brought Harrison Ford the role of Jack Ryan in Tom
Clancy's Patriot Games (1992) and Clear and Present Danger (1994),
as well as leading roles in Alan Pakula's Presumed Innocent (1990)
and The Devil's Own (1997), Andrew Davis' The Fugitive (1993),
Sydney Pollack's remake of Sabrina (1995), and Wolfgang Petersen's
Air Force One (1997). Harrison Ford also played straight dramatic
roles, including an adulterous husband in both Presumed Innocent
(1990) and What Lies Beneath (2000), and a recovering amnesiac in
Mike Nichols' Regarding Henry (1991).
Many of Harrison Ford's major film roles came to him by default
through unusual circumstances: Harrison Ford won the role of Han
Solo while reading lines for other actors, was cast as Indiana Jones
because Tom Selleck was not available, and took the role of Jack
Ryan supposedly due to Alec Baldwin's fee demands, although Baldwin
disputes this (Baldwin had previously played the role in The Hunt
for Red October).
Starting in the late 1990s, Harrison Ford appeared in several
critically derided and commercially disappointing movies, including
Six Days Seven Nights (1998), Random Hearts (1999), K-19: The
Widowmaker (2002), Hollywood Homicide (2003), Firewall (2006), and
Extraordinary Measures (2010). One exception was 2000's What Lies
Beneath, which grossed over $155 million in the United States and
$291 million worldwide.
In 2004, Harrison Ford declined a chance to star in the thriller
Syriana, later commenting that "I didn't feel strongly enough about
the truth of the material and I think I made a mistake." The
role eventually went to George Clooney, who won an Oscar and a
Golden Globe for his work. Prior to that, Harrison Ford had passed
on a role in another Stephen Gaghan-written role, Robert Wakefield
in Traffic. That role went to Michael Douglas.
In 2008, Harrison Ford enjoyed success with the release of Indiana
Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, another collaboration
between George Lucas and Steven Spielberg. The film received
generally positive reviews and was the second highest-grossing film
worldwide in 2008. Harrison Ford later said Harrison Ford would
like to star in another sequel, "...if it didn't take another 20
years to digest."
Other 2008 work included Crossing Over, directed by Wayne Kramer. In
the film, Harrison Ford plays an immigrations officer, working
alongside Ashley Judd and Ray Liotta. Harrison Ford also
narrated a feature documentary film about the Dalai Lama entitled
Dalai Lama Renaissance. Harrison Ford at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival
Harrison Ford filmed the medical drama Extraordinary Measures in
2009 in Portland, Oregon. Released January 22, 2010, the film also
starred Brendan Fraser and Alan Ruck. Also in 2010, Harrison Ford
co-starred in the film Morning Glory, along with Patrick Wilson,
Rachel McAdams, and Diane Keaton.
Harrison Ford has expressed interest in returning to the Jack Ryan
In July 2011, Harrison Ford starred alongside Daniel Craig and
Olivia Wilde in the science fiction Western film Cowboys & Aliens.
Harrison Ford portrays Colonel Woodrow Dolarhyde, a character who
rules the town of Absolution with an iron fist. Harrison Ford
and executive producer Steven Spielberg did not want to have the
character wear a cowboy hat because they were worried that it would
remind audiences of the Indiana Jones films. Harrison Ford
described his character as a "grumpy old man." To promote the
film, Harrison Ford made his first appearance at the San Diego
Comic-Con International, being led onstage in handcuffs by two
security guards, giving the audience the impression that Harrison
Ford was being dragged to Comic-Con against his will. However, the
actor's arrival involuntarily referred to an actual assault that
occurred shortly before the presentation of the film, after which
the alleged assailant was taken away in handcuffs. Harrison Ford
received a long standing ovation as Harrison Ford joined his
co-stars, and, apparently surprised by the warm welcome, told the
audience, "I just wanted to make a living as an actor. I didn't know
In 2011, Harrison Ford starred in Japanese commercials advertising
the video game Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception for the PlayStation 3.
In it, Harrison Ford can be seen playing the game whilst appearing
amazed and praising it.
As of April 2012, Harrison Ford was said to be in late-stage
negotiations to join the corporate espionage thriller Paranoia. The
movie already has Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth confirmed as the
lead while Gary Oldman is also in final talks to star in a
supporting role. Directed by Robert Luketic, Paranoia takes place in
the fast-paced world of business and involves a duel between telecom
giants. Production is scheduled to begin this summer.

Chin and back injury
Harrison Ford injured his chin at the age of 20 when his car, a
Volvo 544, hit a telephone pole in Northern California;[citation
needed] the scar is visible in his films. An explanation for it on
film is offered in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, when a young
Indiana Jones cuts his chin while attempting to crack a whip to ward
off a lion. In Working Girl, Harrison Ford's character explains that
it happened when Harrison Ford passed out and hit his chin on the
toilet when a college girlfriend was piercing his ear. In June 1983,
at age 40, during the filming of Indiana Jones and the Temple of
Doom in London, Harrison Ford herniated a disc in his back, forcing
him to fly back to Los Angeles for an operation. Harrison Ford
returned six weeks later.
Harrison Ford is a private pilot of both fixed-wing aircraft and
helicopters, and owns an 800-acre (3.2 km2) ranch in Jackson,
Wyoming, approximately half of which Harrison Ford has donated as a
nature reserve. On several occasions, Harrison Ford has personally
provided emergency helicopter services at the behest of local
authorities, in one instance rescuing a hiker overcome by
Harrison Ford began flight training in the 1960s at Wild Rose
Idlewild Airport in Wild Rose, Wisconsin, flying in a Piper PA-22
Tri-Pacer, but at $15 an hour Harrison Ford was unable to continue
the training. In the mid-1990s, Harrison Ford bought a used
Gulfstream II and asked one of his pilots, Terry Bender, to give him
flying lessons. They started flying a Cessna 182 out of Jackson,
Wyoming, later switching to Teterboro, New Jersey, flying a Cessna
206, the aircraft Harrison Ford soloed in.
On October 23, 1999, Harrison Ford was involved in the crash of a
Bell 206L4 LongRanger helicopter (N36R). The NTSB accident report
states that Harrison Ford was piloting the aircraft over the Lake
Piru riverbed near Santa Clarita, California, on a routine training
flight. While making his second attempt at an autorotation with
powered recovery Harrison Ford allowed the aircraft's altitude to
drop to 150–200 feet before beginning power up. As a result the
aircraft was unable to recover power before hitting the ground. The
aircraft landed hard and began skidding forward in the loose gravel
before one of its skids struck a partially embedded log and flipped
onto its side. Neither Harrison Ford nor the instructor pilot
suffered any injuries, though the helicopter was seriously damaged.
When asked about the incident by fellow pilot James Lipton in an
interview on the TV show Inside the Actor's Studio Harrison Ford
replied, "I broke it."
Harrison Ford keeps his aircraft at Santa Monica Airport, though
the Bell 407 is often kept and flown in Jackson, Wyoming, and has
been used by the actor in two mountain rescues during the actor's
assigned duty time assisting the Teton County Search and Rescue. On
one of the rescues Harrison Ford recovered a hiker who had become
lost and disoriented. She boarded Harrison Ford's Bell 407 and
promptly vomited into one of the rescuers' caps, unaware of who the
pilot was until much later; "I can't believe I barfed in Harrison
Ford's helicopter!" she said later.
Harrison Ford flies his de Havilland Canada DHC-2 Beaver (N28S) more
than any of his other aircraft, and although Harrison Ford dislikes
showing favoritism, Harrison Ford has repeatedly stated that
Harrison Ford likes this aircraft and the sound of its Pratt &
Whitney R-985 radial engine. Harrison Ford first encountered the
Beaver while filming Six Days Seven Nights, and soon purchased
one. Kenmore Air in Kenmore, Washington, restored
Harrison Ford's yellow and green Beaver — a junked former U.S.
military aircraft — with updated avionics and an upgraded engine.
According to Harrison Ford, it had been flown in the CIA's Air
America operations, and was riddled with bullet holes that had to be
patched up. Harrison Ford uses it regularly for impromptu
fly-ins at remote airports and bush strips, as well as gatherings
with other Beaver owners and pilots.
In March 2004, Harrison Ford officially became chairman of the Young
Eagles program of the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA).
Harrison Ford was asked to take the position by Greg Anderson,
Senior Vice President of the EAA at the time, to replace General
Charles "Chuck" Yeager who was vacating the post that Harrison Ford
had held for many years. Harrison Ford at first was hesitant, but
later accepted the offer and has made appearances with the Young
Eagles at the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh gathering at Oshkosh, Wisconsin
for two years. In July 2005, at the gathering in Oshkosh Harrison
Ford agreed to accept the position for another two years. Harrison
Ford has flown over 280 children as part of the Young Eagles
program, usually in his DHC-2 Beaver, which can seat the actor and
five children. Harrison Ford is involved with the EAA chapter in
Driggs, Idaho, just over the mountains from Jackson, Wyoming.

"Lucas arrived on June 20, . "Harrison was in really
terrible pain," he says. "He was on the set lying on a
gurney. They would lift him up and he'd walk through his
scenes, and they'd get him back on the bed." That same day
Ford filmed his fight with the Thuggee assassin in Indy's
suite on Stage 3. "Harrison had to roll backward on top of
the guy," Spielberg says. "At that moment his back herniated
and Harrison let out a call for help.""
