Trivia: A Ford, Not a Lincoln

WASHINGTON (CNN) - We asked our alert readers to name the presidential offspring who played a small but pivotal role in the 1989 film "When Harry Met Sally." No, it was not Tad Lincoln. Nor was it Grover Cleveland's son Francis in two non-consecutive scenes.

The answer, as many of you guessed, is none other than Steven Ford, the third son of Gerald and Betty Ford. Steven Ford, who incidentally celebrates his 50th birthday today, played "Joe," Meg Ryan's pre-Billy Crystal love interest. He was the tall blonde fellow kissing Sally in the airport early in the film, and his character ultimately was responsible for Harry and Sally's first romantic encounter.
