Some of you may remember a piece I wrote about Glenn Ford a week after his birthday. I don't have much more to add except that Ford starred in quite a few memorable films. Below is my subjective list of some other favorite films that star Ford.

1. The Big Heat - 1953
2. Human Desire - 1954
3. The Money Trap - 1965
4. The Rounders - 1965
5. Plunder of the Sun - 1953
6. 3:10 to Yuma - 1957
7. Jubal - 1956
8. Cowboy - 1958
9. Courtship of Eddie's Father - 1963
10. Experiment in Terror - 1962
11. Gilda - 1946

Glad to see you included "The Courtship of Eddie's Father," a personal favorite of mine. Ford was excellent as the father holding it all in, but I was also impressed by little Ronny Howard's reaction over the dead fish. A beautiful, underrated film.
