Happy Birthday Glenn Ford!!! | May 1, 1916 - August 30, 2006

"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.

Before joining Columbia pictures in 1939, Glenn Ford acted in many West Coast stage companies.  Many were flops and didn’t’ stay in production for long.  One night after a performance Glenn Ford was sitting backstage with actor and friend Louis Calhern and Glenn began to complain about his  encounters with the people in Hollywood:

I told him, “I know I’m no Errol Flynn.  My nose isn’t right, and my mouth’s not really centered, but some girls think I look all right.  Gosh, Louie,” I said, “am I really too homely to be in the movies?”  And Louis said, “Hatrack, forget about the studios.  You’re too talented to be begging them for crumbs.  What you need to do is go to New York and get a part in a decent play.  That’s where you belong. And then the studios will come begging for you.” 




Happy Birthday, Glenn Ford - (May 1rst, 1916 - August 30th, 2006)
"I`ve never played anyone but myself on screen".
