Hollywood star Harrison Ford could have been killed by a hydraulic door on a "Star Wars" movie set, a court heard Tuesday, as the Disney-owned production company admitted to safety breaches. Ford, then aged 71, suffered a broken left leg on the set of the Millennium Falcon spaceship after he was pinned down by the heavy, metal-framed door during filming at Pinewood Studios near London.
