The movie legend is known to millions as adventure hero Indiana Jones, but when the experienced pilot got into trouble in the air in March (15) the situation was far from movie-like.

Seven months on, Harrison has spoken about the accident for the first time, revealing he suffered memory problems for almost a week afterwards and still can't recall all the details of the crash.

"Yeah I remember," he told talk show host Jimmy Kimmel. "Not all of it, I remember some of it."

The crash happened on a California golf course, and luckily two doctors were there when the plane came down and were able to tend to the actor before ambulances arrived.

"I remember the engine stopping, I remember that part very well," he recalled. "And then I remember the tower, I remember their suggestion. Their suggestion was that I take the normal route to land and I knew I wasn't going to do that, so I said no. And that's the last thing that I remember until five days afterwards actually."

The actor revealed he has retrograde amnesia, which means he also has no memory of some events before the accident. Jimmy and the 73-year-old star then made light of the situation, with the host asking if the crash was like a film.

Harrison hasn't had much time to dwell on the accident, as he's been busy with the latest installment of Star Wars, which hits cinemas in December (15).

Jimmy's Thursday evening (29Oct15) show had a Halloween theme, with the host donning a Star Wars Princess Leia costume.

Harrison got a giggle in a hotdog suit, but remained tight-lipped over the new film's plot.

"What is there to say?" he teased. "I want the audience to experience it; I don't want them to hear anything."
