Harrison Ford may play the renowned treasure-hunter in Indiana Jones, but it appears he may want to watch his own treasures while on the set. After reportedly losing his credit card filming Indiana Jones 5, a good samaritan luckily returned it to him.

The Associated Press reported Harrison Ford losing his credit card in a beach town near Palermo, Italy. It seemingly happened during a break while shooting the fifth Indian Jones movie. Luckily for the famed treasure hunter, a German tourist found it Thursday. Seeing Ford’s name etched into the card, he turned it in to Mondello’s police station.

Officers then tracked Ford down to return it to him after confirming it was indeed his. Interestingly, it’s unclear whether or not Ford was even aware he lost the card. The lucky officers got more than a “thank you” for their service, with Ford standing with two of them and the local commander for a photo.

The officers appear quite happy to be seen with him and who could blame them. Between raiding tombs and smuggling interstellar goods, the man has quite the resume.

Tom Selleck was Almost Indiana Jones Instead of Harrison Ford

Harrison Ford epitomizes Indiana Jones and it’s difficult to think about anyone else playing the star. That was very nearly the case, as Tom Selleck had the part, but couldn’t play the character.

Selleck’s charisma and charm are legendary, but especially decades ago. There was a time where everyone wanted Selleck involved with their projects and Indiana Jones was no different. Talking to Yahoo Entertainment’s “BUILD Series,” Selleck recounted the tale.

Once upon a time, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas gave him a call. Saying they were producing a new action movie series, they thought he was perfect for the part. However, there was a bit of a snag. “Turns out CBS wouldn’t let me do it,” Selleck said. “They held the offer out for about a month.”

Continuing with the story, Selleck isn’t too upset about it and says the role belongs to Ford. “Harrison Ford hates to hear this, and Harrison this is your role and your indelible in it, so it’s just an interesting story. But yeah, I mean look, I signed a deal for Magnum, it was the best thing that ever happened to me. I’m proud that I lived up to my contract.”

Selleck also stated many told him to do his best to get out of the Magnum deal because of how huge Indiana Jones was going to be.

“Some people said, ‘you gotta get in the car and drive into a brick wall and get injured and get out of Magnum and do this.’ And I said ‘I gotta look my mom and dad in the eye, and we don’t do that.’ So, I did Magnum, it’s not so bad, is it?”

Selleck isn’t wrong, can you really say the
