Q How did Harrison Ford get that scar on his chin?
—Tina Frazier, Greencastle, Pa.

Ford, 65, who'll star in next year's Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, the fourth movie about the continuing adventures of his swashbuckling archeologist character, was 20 when he was driving to work and tried to buckle his seat belt while the car was in motion. He lost control, ran into a pole and split his chin. In Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989), his character's scar was explained when young Indy strikes himself in the chin, cutting it, as he's learning to use his bullwhip.
