Glenn Ford dead at 90
Veteran actor Glenn Ford - who I have to admit I thought died several years ago - was found dead at his home yesterday afternoon. He was 90.
Ford had a long movie career, starring in everything from The Blackboard Jungle and Experiment In Terror to Superman and The Courtship of Eddie's Father, which also starred Ron Howard and was the basis for the later TV series starring Bill Bixby. Ford starred in a few TV series over the years, including Cade's County and The Family Holvak, along with the mini-series Once An Eagle and the TV movies The Gift and The Sacketts.
His final acting role was the 1991 TV movie Final Verdict, though he made a few appearances in documentaries and specials in the 90s.
