Los Angeles-AP -- The star of "Star Wars" and the "Indiana Jones" movies now has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Among those joining Harrison Ford at the dedication of his star today were his girlfriend, former "Ally McBeal" star Calista Flockhart, his mother and director Steven Spielberg.

Ford says for years he thought he had a star in front of the famed Hollywood Boulevard eatery Musso and Frank -- never realizing it belonged to a silent film star of the same name who died in 1957. Indeed, when Ford first tried to register at the Screen Actors Guild he was told he couldn't because there was already a Harrison Ford. So he became Harrison J. Ford, later dropping the "J."

The crowd cheered when Spielberg promised "Indiana Jones 4."
