Harrison FordAnd now for your daily dose of awesome: Earlier today, Atombomb.tv posted this swoon-worthy interview with Harrison Ford from 1977, right around the time 'Star Wars' came out but before it had blown the young heartthrob into instant stardom. (So handsome!)

It turns out there's actually an entire treasure trove of classic star interviews at the reporter's personal website, BobbieWygant.com.

Ms. Wygant worked as a celebrity reporter and movie reviewer for NBC 5 in Dallas for over 50 years. Her site, along with the interviews, has her original reviews for films like 'The Empire Strikes Back' and 'The Shining.'

Bobbie Wygant Interviews Harrison Ford for Star Wars 1977 from Atombomb.tv on Vimeo.



Included in the interviews posted from her archives are Robert Mitchum, George Burns, Sally Field, Natalie Wood, Dustin Hoffman, Charlton Heston, Bob Hope, Jimmy Stewart, Gregory Peck, Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd and Peter Fonda.

The best part about the videos is that they include Wygant's raw footage. So along with what aired on television, viewers can also see any missteps, off-camera banter and edits that didn't originally air.

Wood, for instance, stops the interview because someone behind the camera is whispering and it distracts her. Once they start over, her smile is again plastered on her stunning face. Meanwhile, once Ford thinks the actual interview part is over, he and Wygant talk about how 'Star Wars' transcended their aversion to science fiction films.

Mel Gibson seems jovial while promoting 'Lethal Weapon' with Danny Glover, and watching is surreal knowing what we now do about his vulgar phone tapes. Pre-interview for 'Kramer vs. Kramer,' a circa-1979 Hoffman laments the lack of appreciation for classical music in modern cinema and says he hopes the '80s will bring a new movement for the genre.

Each interview is fascinating to watch and the whole site is movie geek gold. Check out Wygant's interview with Natalie Wood below, then head over to the site for more.
