Harrison Ford

Today in Film

Today in 1982 “Blade Runner”, directed by Ridley Scott, starring Harrison Ford and Rutger Hauer, is released.

This stunning image of Harrison Ford was taken by Globe photographer Jay Thompson.

Jay Thompson specialized in publicity photos of stage plays in the Los Angeles area. He was also known for his portraits of celebrities such as Bette Davis, Lucille Ball, and Eleanor Roosevelt. A native of East Orange, N.J., Thompson served in the Army in the 1950s. Perhaps his most iconic photo shoot occurred at the Chateau Marmont Hotel in Los Angeles in 1969, where he captured incredible candid photos of the legendary rock group, Led Zeppelin.
