Datebook: July 13 - Harrison Ford Turns 70

Jul 13, 2012

Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Blade Runner, Patriot Games, The Fugitive, What Lies Beneath... There's a reason Harrison Ford was ranked the number 1 "top movie star of all time" by Empire. He's also the third highest grossing US box-office star ($3.5 billion). Happy 70th birthday Harrison! We'll see you in Enders Game next year!
