Harrison Ford said that the music of “Indiana Jones” follows him everywhere, even in the operating room – Diario La Página

The legendary actor Harrison Ford shared a unique anecdote that showed how his career and his most iconic characters follow him even in the most unusual circumstances. In a recent profile published by Variety of the Oscar-winning composer, John Williams, Ford revealed that the theme song from the famous Indiana Jones saga, composed by the musician, accompanied him even in the hospital.

During a recent surgical intervention, the 81-year-old actor was greatly surprised when he heard the music of the action-adventure classic in the operating room. “As I often remember John, his music literally follows me everywhere. When I had my last colonoscopy, they were playing it on the speakers in the operating room,” Ford said.

The connection between Ford and Williams extends beyond the movie screens and the omnipotence of their music in the Blade Runner actor’s life. Harrison confessed that he often sits and watches the Oscar-winning composer while he works on the scores for his films.

“It is a delight to watch him work with the orchestra, simply the pleasure of being able to sit in a room and process the extraordinary attention that each measure of the music receives. “It’s very fun to see how they respect him and how he respects them,” said the movie star about the 92-year-old musician.

John Williams is a renowned American musician, composer and conductor, considered one of the most prolific composers of film scores in the history of film. He is notably famous for being the creator of several of the most memorable soundtracks in film history, including those for hit films such as Star Wars, Harry Potter, Home Alone, Jurassic Park, Jaws, among many others.

This year, Williams reached a milestone in his career by earning his 54th Oscar nomination in the category of Best Original Score for Indiana Jones and the Doomsday Dial, establishing himself as the most nominated living person of all time.

Over the years, Ford has shared his deep appreciation for acting and film. “I probably enjoy making movies more now than ever,” he told People last year, noting that he never pursued fame or wealth, but rather a passion for his craft. “No one believes it, but I never wanted to be rich and famous. “I just wanted to be an actor,” he added.

Last month, it was revealed that the Star Wars script that was auctioned for USD 13,000 had been left behind in a house by Harrison Ford. In 1976, while the actor was in London filming the iconic film directed by George Lucas, he rented part of a house in the Notting Hill district. Ford resided on the top two floors of a spacious house on Elgin Crescent, unaware that he would leave an indelible mark on the place by forgetting a draft of the script when he moved out.

This draft was a fourth version of A New Hope, then titled The Adventures of Luke Starkiller and contained scenes and characters that did not make it into the final version of the film. This document, dated March 15, 1976, stands out for its status still in the editing process, with pages of various colors that indicate the revisions.

Now, almost half a century after Ford left behind this draft of what the public came to know as Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, this document has been sold for more than USD 13,000 to a buyer in Austria during a auction conducted by Excalibur Auctions.
