Promo video made by Charmed Productions about the new biography, Glenn Ford: A Life written by his only child, Peter Ford.
“He is a genuine American
movie star.” --Sidney Poitier, 2005
Whether galloping across the plains with the grace and control of
a true cowboy, slapping around a hardboiled dame in a film noir thriller,
or charming his way through a romantic comedy, Glenn Ford embodied
an indelible array of screen heroes.
Now, fans of the handsome actor known for such classic films as
The Blackboard Jungle, Gilda, Jubal, The Big Heat, The Teahouse of
the August Moon, and Superman, to name only a few, will soon have
reason to celebrate. Peter Ford, the star’s only child, is
writing a biography: Glenn Ford: A Life.
Brimming with behind-the-scenes tales of Glenn's sixty-year acting
career, the book will feature exclusive interviews with dozens of
his esteemed costars, including Ernest Borgnine, Sidney Poitier,
Evelyn Keyes, Debbie Reynolds, Shirley Jones, James Whitmore, Carl
Reiner, and Angela Lansbury. Directors such as Vincent Sherman, Delbert
Mann and Richard Donner will offer insight into Ford’s naturalistic,
yet dynamic acting style, and his refinement of a screen persona
that has been embraced by moviegoers the world over.
Moreover, Glenn’s personal life will be examined with the
insight and authority that comes only with exclusive access to family
members, longtime friends, and a vast collection of diaries, letters,
and unpublished interviews.
Perhaps most important, Glenn Ford: A Life benefits from
the stars own voice. He will recall everything from his early career
struggles to his prodigious love life, including his publicized affairs
with Rita Hayworth, Judy Garland, Hope Lange, and Connie Stevens,
and lesser-known romances with the likes of Joan Crawford and Maria
Schell. His famous sixteen-year marriage to dance icon Eleanor Powell
(Peter Ford’s mother), is discussed in candid detail.
Much admired for his outspoken patriotism, Glenn also reflects on
his decades of proud service in the Coast Guard, the Marines, and
the Navy Reserves.
Glenn Ford: A Life will offer a unique portrait of one of
the most stellar and versatile leading men in the Hollywood pantheon.
