A native of Chicago, Ford launched his film career in 1973 with the breakthrough role of hot-rodder Bob Falfa in George Lucas' seminal hit "American Graffiti." Four years later, he reunited with Lucas to play the iconic role of Han Solo in "Star Wars: A New Hope." The sci-fi epic earned 10 Oscar nominations, including best picture, and went on to become the top-grossing film in history, a record it held for 20 years. Ford reprised the role of Han Solo in the sequels "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi."

In 1981, Ford created another legendary screen character, Indiana Jones, in Steven Spielberg's Oscar-nominated mega-hit "Raiders of the Lost Ark."
