Just heard that Glenn Ford passed away at 90.

That's a pretty good long run, but he'll still be missed.

Those of us on this list will recall him in such noir cop films as THE UNDERCOVER MAN, THE BIG HEAT, and EXPERIMENT IN TERROR. He also played what we might think of as the "Fred MacMurray/John Garfield" part in such "pseudo-Cain" noirs as GILDA and HUMAN DESIRE, and David Dodge's Mexico-based PI, Al Colby, in PLUNDER OF THE SUN. He also played a rural sheriff in the contemporary Southwest in CADE'S COUNTY, which, though set in moder times, recalled the many westerns he'd starred in over the years. His last appearance was as a snapshot on Eva Marie Saint's mantel in SUPERMAN RETURNS.

Thanks for all the entertainment, Mr. Ford.
