5.0 out of 5 stars GLENN FORD : A GREAT ACTOR - FILM BIOGRAPHY AT IT'S BEST!, July 16 2011
This review is from: Glenn Ford: A Life (Paperback)
Finally, my favourite actor's life has been captured and preserved in this engaging biography, a true accomplishment and contribution to film biography. Peter Ford immediately draws the reader into the family's Canadian history and the challenges presented in becoming a professional actor in Hollywood. Every student of film should read this book. It is thoughtful, engaging, intelligently written and filled with first-hand information about Hollywood's Golden Age. It reads like a voyage you hope will never end. Glenn Ford was a most accomplished actor who exquisitely depicted the essence of every fascinating character he portrayed throughout his prolific career. Russell Crowe was good in 3:10 to Yuma, but Glenn Ford was superlative as Ben Wade in the original film. We need more Glenn Fords in film today. 'He is a genuine American movie star' - Sidney Poitier, 2005" [...]

Thank You Peter Ford for writing this book, I had been searching for a quality biography about Glenn Ford for many years. Readers, if you like classic films and biographies, this is a MUST READ. Canadians, it is time Glenn Ford receives his Star on Canada's Walk of Fame in Toronto

This review is from: Glenn Ford: A Life (Paperback)
For the wonderful biography you have written about your father, actor Glenn Ford.Fascinating and well told. You have a talent for writing which I trust you will have other occasions to exercise.You have provided wonderful vignettes about many actors and Hollywood personages I have admired for decades, being a movie fan of the "Classic" era.I am the proud owner of both the hard and soft cover editions of " Glenn Ford: A Life." I look forward to what I hope will be your next project, a biography of your mother, actress and dancer extraordinaire, Eleanor Powell. Allyne (Al) Knox
