Biography - A Short Wiki

He starred in Westerns and drama films such as the 1946 film, Gilda. He won the 1962 Golden Globe Award for Best Actor for his work in Pocketful of Miracles.

“Nothing ever changes as far as Westerns are concerned. They are the same today as they were years ago.” (Glenn Ford)


“I can’t frankly see much difference in the film industry at all. The only difference might be that they don’t take as much time as they used to. For example, they’ll do in one day what we used to take a week to do.” (Glenn Ford)


“I think the director is becoming more important. To work under rushed conditions, you need to have an extremely professional director. If the director’s good than the end result will be good.” (Glenn Ford)


“I don’t know how it is now but the assistant stage manager had to understudy several parts. You had to be ready to go on at any time if the actor couldn’t make it to the play. I didn’t think anything of it.” (Glenn Ford)


“I suddenly realized that the fellow who didn’t show up was getting about fifty-times more money than I was getting. So I thought, ‘this is silly,’ and became an actor. I certainly never thought I’d wind up in motion pictures. That was far beyond anything I’d ever dreamed of.” (Glenn Ford)
