Summary
Glenn Ford--star of such now-classic films as Gilda, Blackboard Jungle, The Big Heat, 3:10 to Yuma, and The Rounders--had rugged good looks, a long and successful career, and a glamorous Hollywood life. Yet the man who could be accessible and charming on screen retreated to a deeply private world he created behind closed doors. This biography by Glenn Ford's son, Peter, chronicles the volatile life, relationships, and career of the renowned actor. It follows Ford's career from theatre to film to television to radio--and shows how he shifted effortlessly between genres, playing major roles in dramas, noir, westerns, and romances. It also tells of his relentless infidelities and long, slow fade-out. Included are exclusive interviews with family, friends, and professional associates, and snippets from the Ford family collection of diaries, letters, audiotapes, unpublished interviews, and rare candid photos. The result is an authentic Hollywood story that isn't afraid to reveal the truth.--From publisher description
