Another actor named Harrison Ford has gained fame in movies since the 1970s.
Harrison Ford (March 16, 1884 – December 2, 1957) was an American actor in the silent film era of the 1910s and 20s.
Born in Kansas City, Missouri, Harrison Ford began acting on stage and made his Broadway debut in 1904. He turned to film beginning in 1915 and moved to Hollywood. He became a leading man opposite early stars such as Constance Talmadge, Norma Talmadge, Marie Prevost, Marion Davies, and Clara Bow.
Ford’s acting career ended with the advent of talkies, making his final film in 1932. He only made one talking picture, “Love in High Gear”. He returned to acting in the theatre afterwards. He also directed productions at the Little Theater of the Verdugos in Glendale, California.
During World War II, he toured with the United Service Organizations (USO). In the early 1950s, he was struck by a car while out walking. He never recovered from the severe injuries received and died in 1957 in the Motion Picture & Television Country House and Hospital in Woodland Hills, California. He was interred in the Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery in Glendale.
