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

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
