It’s Harrison Ford’s birthday on Friday and, to celebrate, we took a look back and found his 10 greatest movies of all time.
The 76-year-old actor got his first big break in Hollywood when he was cast by a fairly unknown director by the name of George Lucas for his 1973 film “American Graffiti.” That relationship helped him land a chance to read for Lucas to play the lovable scoundrel Han Solo for his 1977 sci-fi adventure “Star Wars: Episode IV-A New Hope.” The role, which he played alongside newcomers Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill, turned Ford into a worldwide celebrity.
Picking the best 10 movies from his career spanning close to 50 years proved to be challenging. But after taking a look at his Rotten Tomatoes scores and adding our own favorites, we came up with this list.
Of course, his role as archeologist Indiana Jones in the 1981 Steven Spielberg directed adventure ” Raiders of the Lost Ark” made the cut. But check out the list to see if your favorites also were among the top 10 movies selected.
So, sit back, relax and enjoy this ride through these classic Ford movies.
While it’s always tricky trying to make everyone happy, we are pretty sure even the biggest fans would have to agree that these go down as memorable movie moments.
Happy Birthday, Harrison!
