Watching Glenn Ford On TCM

July 2, 2019

Last night I enjoyed watching TCM “Star of the Month,” Glenn Ford, a truly fine actor in two films that the station aired.

First I watched Mr. Ford with Gloria Grahame and others in “The Big Heat,” directed by Fritz Lang, a film from 1953.

Next, two years later and with the classic song, “Rock Around The Clock” performed by Bill Haley & His Comets, opening the film, it was “Blackboard Jungle,” with Ford and an emerging great, Sidney Poitier.

Anne Francis and Vic Morrow, the latter a legend and nice guy from the 188th Street “Candy Stores” area of the Bronx, were also part of the excellent cast.

It was a great night of movies.
