at the

American Cinematheque

Hollywood, California




Glenn Ford was a major star in Hollywood for decades, yet not until now has there been a book about the man on screen and off. Join Larry Edmunds Bookshop in welcoming Peter Ford signing his book, “Glenn Ford-A Life” prior to a double feature of Framed (1947) and Mr. Soft Touch (1949). Neither film is available on dvd.


Book signing @ 6:30 p.m. in the lobby of the Egyptian Theater. Films start @ 7:30 p.m.



This biography documents the life and the occasionally scandalous private life of Glenn Ford, chronicling a renowned actor’s relentless infidelities and long, slow fade-out, while also celebrating his talent-driven career.



Peter Ford appeared in eight films with his father, Glenn Ford, as well as many other movies, television shows, and stage productions. He lives in Beverly Hills, California.

    I’ve just listened to an interview with Peter Ford about his biography of his father – and I’m absolutely intrigued. I am not a movie buff, and certainly haven’t had any interest in the Hollywood’s golden age, but I do appreciate a good book. Having listened to the interview, a program on the bookreportradio (dotcom), after taking the show’s recommendation of Sargent Shriver’s biography (also written by his son – Mark Shriver), this biography that portrays Glenn Ford as a human with many failings, has real appeal to me. If only to compare one son to the other, considering both their previously privileged pasts.

    You are so fantastic!!! I have become obsessed with your website and
    I spend most of my time reading all your archives.
    And I signed up JUST to post comments. I wish I’d found out about sooner, and I wish you updated as much as you did in the past! You must be constantly busy now though because you are so famous!!
