She started out as Francis Ford Coppola’s baby-sitter. And despite having had an impressive career as a screenwriter before marrying her movie star husband in 1983 — she’d already penned “The Black Stallion” and “E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial” — Melissa Mathison surely became a more, shall we say, “interesting” story after becoming Mrs. Harrison Ford during the height of her husband’s career. No longer married, he continues to play Indiana Jones, while she has moved on to writing books.
