WASHINGTON, Jan 5, 1999 (Reuters) – Harrison Ford is America’s favorite movie star, according to a poll released on Tuesday, with the late John Wayne coming in second place.
The annual Harris poll, based on interviews with 1,010 adults, found that Ford, the star of blockbusters such as “Raiders of the Lost Ark”, “Witness”, and the Indiana Jones movies, was the number one choice among people aged 18 to 24 as well as for
American adults overall.
Western movie superstar John Wayne, who died in 1979, was the second most popular star, ahead of Mel Gibson who came third and Clint Eastwood and Tom Cruise who shared fourth place. Eastwood had topped the list last year.
