The hosts of the Cinephile Hissy Fit podcast, sponsored and supported by the Ruminations Radio Network, will put Harrison Ford up against anyone when it comes to the greatest movie stars of all-time. The list of his hits speak for themselves. The fun part is every big star like that has movies hiding a little deeper and a little further down their illustrious resumes. Our guys love the deep cuts and took one here.

For their 124rd episode, two dashing film critics, two non-veteran dads, and two honorable teachers, Will Johnson and Don Shanahan, begin to venture to some of the older and underseen films of Harrison Ford. They were inspired after spending in-person time together earlier this summer with Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny. Up first is 1979’s romantic drama Hanover Street from director Peter Hyams. The movie attempted to make Ford a swoon-worthy romantic lead between the first two “Star Wars” movies when his charisma shot up like a rocket. The guys share their thoughts! Come for the shared challenge and stay for the mutual love and respect for the fun movies encapsulate. Enjoy our podcast!
