Film Quiz Friday: Ford Focus

Share this Article:

As The Man In The Hat hangs his fedora up with Indiana Jones And The Dial Of Destiny, this week’s film quiz covers the works of Harrison Ford.

Harrison Ford once opined: “Whoever had the bright idea of putting Indiana Jones in a leather jacket and a fedora in the jungle ought to be dragged into the street and shot.” Still, the wardrobe discomfort hasn’t stopped him reprising the role a few times over the past four decades, most recently in this week’s big release. For any Raiders of the archive, there’s a more Indy-centric quiz here, but this week’s specialist round covers more of the great man’s career choices.

Once you’ve completed all three rounds, you’ll find a link to a separate post with the correct answers at the bottom of this post. As always, this is just for fun, but please let us know how you did in the comments (scores out of 30 this week!) and leave us any other lovely feedback. Fingers of doom at the ready…!
