Summary He was an underachiever who came late to acting. He moved to Los Angeles to seek stardom, then spent six frustrating years waiting for a decent role. Even after he appeared in "American Graffiti," Harrison Ford's acting career seemed stuck in neutral, and he was working as a carpenter - installing a door at Zoetrope Studios - when George Lucas recognized the actor from his earlier film and invited him to read for "Star Wars." The unheralded sci-fi film became an instant classic, and made Ford one of Hollywood's hottest commodities. From his earliest appearance as a bellhop in "Dead Heat on a Merry-Go-Round" (1966) to his many blockbusters, this biography chronicles every step of Ford's remarkable career. And in a candid, far-ranging interview, he reflects on life in front of - and away from - the camera, and his unlikely journey from Chicago to Hollywood.
