An Uncredited Cameo In More American Graffiti Is The Perfect Opportunity For Harrison Ford Hijinks

“More American Graffiti” uses split-screen and multiple storylines as it captures “American Graffiti” characters on New Year’s Eve for four consecutive years from 1964 to 1967. Ford motorcycle cop appears at about the 10-minute mark as Candy Clark’s character, Debbie Dunham, and her new hippie boyfriend, Lance (John Lansing), drive around San Francisco in a car full of drugs.

Ford’s police tried to pull them over and they stopped for a few hours while they disposed of the drugs, but unfortunately, Lance forgot about “a bad joint,” a marijuana cigarette, which he put in his ear. This led Ford’s police to cuff him, giving Debbie his badge number and even spelling out his name as he did so. “The name is Falfa,” he said. “Officer Falfa. FALFA.”

The joke, of course, is that Falfa, the street racer from the first film, has become a traffic cop who “has nothing better to do than hassle longhairs.” Ford, too, will play some pranks on the crowd after he gets into full character and costume as a cop for “More American Graffiti.”
