Harrison Ford in E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982)
Had Raiders of the Lost Ark not made him a megastar the year before, it is possible that Harrison Ford’s cameo in Steven Spielberg’s follow-up, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, may have made it into the film’s theatrical cut. In the deleted scene, Ford plays the principal to Elliott (Henry Thomas), the young boy hiding an alien from his mom and the government. Shot in shadow, Ford’s face cannot be seen. Instead he takes Elliott to task for his bad behaviour in class and warns him where it can lead, as Elliott levitates behind him. It is said that Spielberg was worried that Ford’s presence would distract from the film, hence the cut.
