Harrison Ford (born July 13, 1942) is American actor, perhaps best known for playing charismatic rogues in the Star Wars and Indiana Jones film franchises.
Frustrated with his lack of success as an actor, Ford became a carpenter to supplement his income. George Lucas gave him his first important film role in his 1973 drama American Graffiti, but his career failed to progress much. He worked for Francis Ford Coppola as both a carpenter and an actor with small roles in The Conversation (1974) and Apocalypse Now (1979).
In 1977 Ford collaborated with Lucas again for his breakthrough role as Han Solo in Star Wars. His portrayal of the brash but likable rogue in this science-fiction classic helped raise his profile in Hollywood. The film’s two sequels, The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Return of the Jedi (1983), helped make him a star.
Although he is just as sexy now as he was back then, there’s no denying that as a young man Harrison Ford was incredibly good looking. Here’s a collection of 25 vintage photographs of a very handsome and young Harrison Ford in the late 1970s.
