Harrison Ford

Harrison Ford was born on July 13th, 1942. He's a very talented actor in America. One of my favorites!

He was born at Chicago's Swedish Covenant Hospital. His Mother, Dorothy (née Dora Nidelman), a homemaker and former radio actress. Christopher Ford (born John William Ford), an advertising executive and a former actor.
He has a younger brother, Terence, was born in 1945. Ford's paternal grandparents, John Fitzgerald Ford and Florence Veronica Niehaus, were of Irish Catholic and German descent.
Harrison'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 he was raised, he jokingly responded, "Democrat". He has also said that he feels "Irish as a person, but I feel Jewish as an actor".
That latest Indiana Jones movie was a big let down but I think Hollywood had their dirty hands in that?
Otherwise though Harrison is great in these other movies. Like American Grafitti, Star Wars IV: A New Hope.
Five of his films have been inducted into the National Film Registry.
