Five of his films have been inducted into the National Film Registry. in 1997, Ford was ranked No. 1 in Empire’s “The Top 100 Movie Stars of All Time” list. As of July 2008, the United States domestic box office grosses of Ford’s films total almost US$3.4 billion, with worldwide grosses surpassing $6 billion, making Ford the third highest grossing U.S. domestic box-office star. His mother, Dorothy (née Dora Nidelman), was a homemaker and former radio actress, and his father, Christopher Ford (born John William Ford), was an advertising executive and a former actor. in a television interview shown in August 2000, when asked about what influence his mixed Irish-Catholic and Russian-Jewish ancestry may have had on his life as a person and as an artist, Ford humorously stated “As a man I’ve always felt Irish, as an actor I’ve always felt Jewish.” Ford was active in the Boy Scouts of America, and achieved its second-highest rank, Life Scout. Because of this, he and Eagle Scout director Steven Spielberg later decided to depict the young Indiana Jones as a Life Scout in the film Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Ford, a self-described “late bloomer,” became fascinated with acting. He did not get it, but stayed in California and eventually signed a $150 a week contract with Columbia Pictures’ New Talent program, playing bit roles in films.
