“Glenn Ford never got the respect he deserved for being a tough, straight-ahead actor who always had a way of rising to the occasion demanded by Fritz Lang or Vincente Minnelli. His son’s biography is a welcome tribute to a conflicted man and an often overlooked star.”—Scott Eyman, author of Pieces of My Heart
"A frank portrait of a conflicted man and a respected star of Golden Age Hollywood. . . . Peter succeeds in objectively revisiting his father’s life and work while peeling back without fear the painful layers in their mutual history. . . . This biography should rank with Maria Riva’s Marlene Dietrich as one of the best examples of a family biography and should appeal to film scholars and film fans alike."—Library Journal

The book was informative but I was disappointed to learn that Glen Ford was just a self absorbed narcistic creep. There was nothing inspiring or really endearing about him.Published 8 months ago by Sally Licari Wallace
Sad to read he wasn't always a gentleman and not a particularly good actor. I enjoyed the book because I love biographies but disappointed in someone I thought was more of a hero.Published 9 months ago by Vicki Blake
