    Oh boy, we've got a good one this week! Glenn Ford brings new meaning to the term "hard-boiled" in this tough, gritty noir about murder, corruption, and one man's descent into an obsession for justice at any price. Co-starring Lee Marvin, Jocelyn Brando, and Gloria Grahame in a scene-stealing performance. Directed by Fritz Lang.

    Following in the tradition of "McClintock" a couple of weeks ago, today's feature is another Shakespearean Western. Leonard Maltin calls it "Othello On The Range" and it's an apt description. Ernest Borgnine plays the Othello character, Rod Steiger's Iago, Valerie French is Desdemona and Glenn Ford is the Cassio character. Also starring Charles Bronson and Felicia Farr(Mrs. Jack Lemmon). Sidenote: I believe both Ford and Borgnine were Republicans.

    Warner Bros. today will launch a service giving the public the opportunity to custom-order DVDs of films never before released via the medium. The move is seen as a response to dwindling DVD sales and also to customer demand for titles that while not totally obscure, didn't necessarily generate enough heat to merit a full-on DVD release. The Warner Archive Collection, available at WarnerArchive.com, includes films dating back to the silent age and for $19.95 per disc Warners will burn, package and ship for receipt within an estimated five days. Currently there are 150 titles available with for a total...

    Two famous entertainers memorialized: Glen Ford and Steve Irwin. Only be aware, this is a Steve Irwin rant because while I didn't wish the man to die I always thought he was a walking, talking idiot. Some media nuggets, the origin of rock group names and web sites that changed the world. Heh, Katie Couric pic before and after CBS altering, the power of makeup, Tom Cruise, Kate Moss and Liza's divorce gossip.

    When Glenn Ford died Thursday morning at the age of 90, major media recalled his long Hollywood career, recalling the 106 films in which he appeared, his many marriages and romances. Wrote the Associated Press, "He was a star to the end of his career." Glenn Ford was far more than that, yet none of the obituaries bothered to mention his extraordinary patriotism or his distinguished military career. Ford rose to the rank of Captain in the United States Navy after years of dedicated service that began with World War II and continued through the Vietnam War. He was undoubtedly...

Paramedics called to Ford's home just before 4 p.m. found Ford dead, police Sgt. Terry Nutall said, reading a prepared statement. "They do not suspect foul play," he said. Ford suffered a series of strokes in the 1990s. Failing health forced him to skip a 90th birthday tribute on May 1 at Hollywood's historic Grauman's Egyptian Theatre. But he did send greetings via videotape, adding, "I wish I were...

    BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) - Glenn Ford, stalwart hero of Westerns, comedies and urban dramas during Hollywood's Golden Age, emerged from 15 years of seclusion to celebrate his 90th birthday with friends and co-workers at his home. However, Ford, who turned 90 on Monday, was unable to enjoy the celebration, held the previous day. He was lucid and communicative in the morning, family members said, but his condition worsened in the afternoon. A few guests made visits to his bedroom, but he was unable to respond. "Dad has had a series of ministrokes starting 15 years ago," said his son,...

    Glenn Ford tells NewsMax that Ronald Reagan “was a true friend and an American Patriot.” Ford, 88, according to his son Peter, spent time today watching the television coverage of the late president’s tribute at the Ronald Reagan Library. “I can tell you he had tears in his eyes,” recounted Peter Ford, who chatted with his father about his friend Ron on behalf of NewsMax. “Dad doubled-dated with Nancy and Ron before they were married,” Peter recounts. “I hadn’t realized just how far back our two families' relationship went. I guess there’s not another family in Hollywood whose friendship goes...

    Happy Birthday, Glenn Ford! Today marks the 88th birthday of one of the silver screen's legendary actors – and a great American. Glenn Ford was a rising star, one of a small group of actors who would become film immortals, but he cast it aside to answer his country’s call. In 1942, at the age of 26, Glenn Ford, already headed for superstardom, left the glamour and big money of Hollywood behand and joined the U.S. Marine Corps as a private. Thirty-five years – and three wars – later, he would retire as a highly decorated Navy captain. And Ford...
