1In my opinion, it is a death wish for an actor to be in too many B or should I say C movies. Maybe my greatest contribution to cinema was not doing Fistful of Dollars, and recommending Clint for the part.


1Retired from the movie business. Lives in California.
2Husband of Maria Francesca
3Father of Sebastian Harrison
4Father of Robert Harrison
5Father of Richard Harrison II,
6In the mid-eighties, he worked in Hong Kong with director Godfrey Ho and producer Joseph Lai, making several "ninja" b-actioners. However, without his knowledge, the film-makers edited Harrison's scenes into several more movies, which were released with him as the star. Harrison found himself the unwitting and unwilling star of more than a dozen of z-grade actioners, which strongly tarnished his reputation.
7Had three sons with first wife, Loretta. One son, Sebastian Harrison, appeared in several films but quit acting and got into the computer business; another lives in San Luis Obispo; a third son is deceased. He also has a daughter by his second marriage.
8In his salad days he joined the Athletic Model Guild and became a popular poser for such physique magazines as "Body Beautiful," "Tomorrow's Man," "Physique Pictorial" and "Man Alive."
9Harrison was the one who suggested Clint Eastwood to Sergio Leone when the famed director was looking for a lead in "A Fistful of Dollars" in 1964. According to an interview with Charles Marquis Warren in 1981, Leone came to the set of Rawhide intending to recruit Eric Fleming for the lead in the upcoming "A Fistful of Dollars." Due to Fleming's off putting personality, Leone looked elsewhere. Warren suggested Eastwood as an alternative.
