Harrison Ford's greatest early performances
7 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a great made-for-TV movie that was made in the 1970's! The acting was great, the story was great, and the special effects are still pretty effective and scary. The movie starred James Farentino as a dead priest that comes back from the dead to stop evil at an all-girls school. Joan Hackett also gives a great performance as the head mistress. But the big surprise of all about this low-budget 1977 made-for-TV movie is that a very young Harrison Ford stars as a biology teacher. He gives one of his best early performances as the cool, hip teacher at school that every girl has a crush on. With Harrison Ford's performance and a good story to back it up, this is a must see for Harrison Ford fans!
