Gwyllyn Samuel Newton "Glenn" Ford (May 1, 1916 – August 30, 2006) was a Canadian-American actor best known for playing ordinary men in unusual circumstances. Ford was most prominent during Hollywood's Golden Age as one of the biggest box-office draws of the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s, who had a career that lasted more than 50 years. Although he played in many genres of movies, some of his most significant roles were in the film noirs Gilda (1946) and The Big Heat (1953), and the high school angst film Blackboard Jungle (1955). However, it was for comedies or westerns which he received acting laurels, including three Golden Globe Nominations for Best Actor in a Comedy movie, winning for Pocketful of Miracles (1961). He also played a supporting role as Clark Kent's adoptive father in Superman (1978).

Add Gloria Grahame too.

Joly10Sep 13, 2019

All of these relationships and many more have been confirmed in his son’s book. He had affairs with 146 actresses according to his son. Their names need to be added here. Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland, Angie D*ckinson, Stella Stevens, Terry Moore, Loretta Young, Liz Renay, Geraldine Brooks, and Christiane Schmidtmer are just some of the names that should be added. There are many more.

I question the validity of all these Conquests

anonJan 18, 2011

As of this date, I will no longer be voting daily for Eleanor Powell.

ginababeginababeAug 17, 2010

As far as the conclusions of each of Glenn`s marriages, and how they ended and who chose to end them, I can`t say for sure, and I probably shouldn`t speculate. That was Glenn`s business.

ginababeginababeAug 17, 2010

I imagine that`s probably why they decided to stay friends. They were better off as friends anyway. My question is, what did Eleanor see in Glenn? He didn`t seem like her type at all. I love Glenn, but they really didn`t seem very well matched. As for Glenn`s indecisiveness it was my understanding that he didn`t like to be alone, so I don`t think, ( I can`t say for sure, no one can) that he ended any of his marriages, my bet it was the women more than likely. He even proposed to Debbie Reynolds while on the set of It started with a kiss both coming out of long term relationships, Debbie turned him down saying she wasn`t ready.

Daisy PresbyAug 14, 2010

Oh, Poor Eleanor Powell, You could tell that she was trying to (Save Face) in that newspaper comment !!God Bless Her !! And, may I add, Look at Glenn`s track record with women. Then, Look at Rita Hayworth`s track record with men. How Long do you think THAT union would have lasted, had they married ???? It`s just to bad that Poor Eleanor, and Kathryn and Cynthia and Jeanne, had to endure Glenn`s indecisiveness.

ginababeginababeAug 4, 2010

This was a comment from Eleanor in the Sunday Gazette-Mail, 1-22-1961. I guess deep down, in the far pockets of my soul, I knew Glenn and I were mismated. But I continued to hope that things would get better. I was never bitter. I never complained. Glenn was my husband and the father of our son ... When Peter was 14, I decided to stop running ad face the truth. Our marriage just wasn`t any good. It was no good for Glenn, no good for me, no good for Peter. One day in April 1959, I finally turned to Jimmy Juris, an old family friend. `Jimmy,` I said, `make an appointment for me with Jerry Giesler. I want a divorce.` But Jerry Giesler was sick and another lawyer handled the divorce. But no matter who had handled it, I wasn`t about to air any dirty linen in public.

Jim DunningJul 31, 2010

I guess that I just do not understand how Mr Ford could have allowed a Divorce to happen between him and the Beautiful Eleanor Powell. Eleanor was Beautiful, Caring, Devoted, and an Outstanding Mother. Mr Ford.. What were you thinking ??

Daisy PresbyMay 9, 2010

I agree with Irene. I think that Glenn always carried a torch for Eleanor Powell.

ginababeginababeMar 28, 2010

Irene, that`s actually not true. While they were parents to Peter and at one point did love each other, in an interview recently, Peter Ford himself said that Rita was the love of Glenn`s life. Now if it was reciprocated on Rita`s end we will never know. But one thing is for sure and that is Rita and Glenn remained great friends for most of their life up until Rita`s death and Glenn always had a rose by Rita`s picture even after her death. I have the link to that interview if you are interested.

Irene S.Jul 19, 2009

Ellie, was alway`s Nearest to Glenn`s Heart.
