Glenn Ford

Blackboard Jungle

Starring both Sidney Poitier and Glenn Ford, this film was quite revolutionary in its time, focusing on the growing youth culture and fear of juvenile delinquency in the 1950s. Due to this shocking subject matter—though the film in its entirety is extremely tame by today’s standards, Blackboard Jungle was actually banned in several states and countries until certain scenes and/or language were edited out!

Pocketful of Miracles (1961)

Bette Davis & Glenn Ford Hate Each Other, Frank Capra Sells Out, & Bette & Hope Lange Play Musical Chairs. It’s 1961’s Pocketful of Miracles.

3:10 to Yuma

“When the 3:10 to Yuma whistles its sad refrain…take that Train!” In 3:10 to Yuma, Glenn Ford plays against type, creating a nuanced, somehow likeable outlaw. This is one classic Western you don’t want to miss!
