I’m such a Glenn Ford fan, though I prefer his film noir masterpiece, The Big Heat (my very favorite film noir in fact).

My bubble was a bit burst, though, when I read Robert Wagner’s bio (excellent, by the way). Robert relays a story about observing Glenn perform with Eleanor Parker, I believe. Glenn intentionally let her drain herself in early takes so that he would outshine her in the final take due to her emotional exhaustion. (Booooo!)

Regardless, a great story as always, Jeremy!
