Before They Were Stars: 13-Year Old Kurt Russell on “The Fugitive”

Since this happened way before my time, it’s always surreal to me to see Kurt Russell as a child actor making guest appearances on popular television shows during the 1960s. Here’s 13-year old Kurt on a 1964 episode of The Fugitive, playing Lt. Gerard, who inadvertently winds up being kidnapped by the fugitive himself after Richard Kimble steals Gerard’s station wagon while Kurt is hiding in the back seat. In a strange way, I guess this is as close as we’ve ever gotten to the dream pairing of Kurt Russell and Harrison Ford.
