His father was Irish, his mother Russian-Jewish. He was a lackluster student at Maine Township High School East in Park Ridge Illinois (no athletic star, never above a C average). After dropping out of Ripon College in Wisconsin, where he did some acting and later summer stock, he signed a Hollywood contract with Columbia and later Universal. His roles in movies and TV ("Ironside" (1967), "The Virginian" (1962)) remained secondary and, discouraged, he turned to a career in professional carpentry. He came back big four years later, however, as Bob Falfa in American Graffiti (1973). Four years after that he hit colossal with the role of Han Solo in Star Wars (1977). Another four years and Ford was (words fail) Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981). Still another four years and he received Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for his role as John Book in Witness (1985). All he managed four years after that was his third starring success as Indiana Jones; in fact, many of his earlier successful roles led to sequels as did his more recent portrayal of Jack Ryan in Patriot Games (1992). Another Golden Globe nomination came his way for the part of Dr. Richard Kimble in The Fugitive (1993). He is clearly a well- established Hollywood superstar. He also maintains an 800-acre ranch in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

- Considers The Mosquito Coast (1986) to be the favorite of all his movies.
- Lives in a white-painted ranch house that he built himself in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
- Has a scar on his chin which he got when he tried to "buckle up" while already driving, and lost control of the car. The scar has been explained in two of his films: in the River Phoenix introductory sequence in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989), an inexperienced young Indy hits himself in the chin the first time he tries to use the whip; and in Working Girl (1988), he first says that he got the scar in a knife fight, then admits that the true story is that he knocked his chin on a toilet after fainting during an ear-piercing.
- He was billed as Harrison J. Ford until 1970 for less confusion between he and silent-screen actor Harrison Ford. He actually has no middle name.

Ford has said "The Patriot" was "too violent" for his tastes, especially considering that many children were killed and endangered throughout the film. He told People Magazine that he also turned down the film because he felt the story was too simple: "The Revolutionary War boiled down to one man seeking revenge."

- Listed in the 2001 Guinness Book of Records as the richest male actor.
- Turned down the role of Judge Wakefield in the movie Traffic (2000).
- Credited with "creating" what many believe to be the best scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) because he was suffering from a bout of dysentery at the time of filming: during the scene in Cairo with the swordsman in black, the script called for a much longer fight, but because of his condition, he quietly asked director Steven Spielberg if they could shorten the scene. Spielberg's reply was that the only way it could be done would be if Indy pulled out his gun and "just shot the guy." The rest of the crew, not aware of the change, laughed at this, and it remained in the final cut.
- Honored for his work with the environment, Ford was asked to name a new breed of butterfly. He named it after his daughter, Georgia.
- Dragonfly (2002) was written with Ford in mind for the lead role. He turned it down to take a year off from making movies, and the part was given to Kevin Costner.
- Costner's and Ford's casting choices have crossed paths many times before. Ford turned down the Jack Ryan role in The Hunt for Red October (1990) as did Costner. Ford instead made Presumed Innocent (1990) and Costner made his Oscar-winning Dances with Wolves (1990). The Jack Ryan role went to then character-actor Alec Baldwin.

- Has a species of Central American ant (Peidole harrisonfordi) and spider (Calponia Harrisonfordi) named after him in honor of his conservation work.
- He suffered a back injury while filming Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984) which required surgery. While he was away Steven Spielberg filmed around him as best he could in the fights and stunt scenes, using Vic Armstrong, a British-born stunt man who looked so much like Ford that members of the crew were always mistaking confusing the two. Ford resumed doing his own stunts upon his return, and his close-ups were added later into the finished film.
- Recommended River Phoenix for the role of the young Indiana Jones in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989). Ford and Phoenix had previously played father and son in The Mosquito Coast (1986).
