Excellent and very interesting review of the life of Harrison Ford.I like him......Thanks for sharing

Excellent fact sheet on Harrison Ford. Star Wars was never my thing but my stepson loves those movies. I best remember Harrison Ford for his role in the Indiana Jones movies, The Fugitive an Blade Runner. Ford was pretty evenly matched with the acting prowess of Tommy Lee Jones in The Fugitive. They are both masters as far as I'm concerned where action movies are concerned.
