‘The Conversation’ pairs Ford with Gene Hackman in a post-Watergate era spy-mystery film. The tagline was, ‘Harry Caul is an invader of privacy. The best in the business. He can record any conversation between two people anywhere. So far, three people are dead because of him.’
Also has early roles for Cindy Williams and Terri Garr.
‘The Possessed’ aired on network television on May 1, 1977. And is essentially a ‘low-rent’ “Exorcist” knock-off. But by all accounts, it’s fun. More importantly, it features Ford in the role of teacher, which he would reprise in ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’.

‘The Sodbusters’ would foreshadow a huge role for Ford. That of gunslinger. George Lucas would think of Han Solo as sort of a cowboy-gunslinger type and this role on Gunsmoke (and another on ‘The Virginian’) may have helped Ford’s chances in winning the iconic role.
As far as ‘Gunsmoke’ episodes goes, it’s excellent!

‘American Grafitti’ was important for bringing George Lucas and Harrison Ford together. Ford plays the part of ‘Tex’, another ‘cowboy’ with a hot-rod. Actually his character’s name was ‘Bob Falfa’. Ford would even reprise the role in the sequel, ‘More American Grafitti’ in 1979.
