Harrison Ford’s E.T. cameo — up at YouTube

I have long known that Harrison Ford had a cameo in a scene that was deleted from E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982).

And I have long wondered how this cameo was shot, given that roughly the first two-thirds of Steven Spielberg’s film do not show the faces of any adult characters except for Elliott’s mother.

Well, thanks to YouTube, now I know.

Incidentally, Damian Arlyn at Windmills of My Mind has been blogging a different Spielberg film every day this month, as part of a series called “31 Days of Spielberg“. Check it out.

    The Henry Thomas audition video is very cool, too. The poster of this video mentioned it in the comments. Search “Henry Thomas Audition”.
