"Glenn Ford was a genuine American movie star. As a young actor coming along, I tagged him as someone from whom I could learn." —Sidney Poitier
Glenn Ford and Eleanor Powell were wed on October 23rd, 1943 while Glenn was in between stints at Camp Pendleton. Under the circumstances of wartime, they decided that a simple ceremony would be best held at Eleanor’s home and with a minimum of fuss. Eleanor wore a cream colored satin gown and held a long spray of white orchids. Glenn was in impeccable Marines dress form.
Happy Birthday, Glenn Ford - (May 1rst, 1916 - August 30th, 2006)
